Quizzes are a widely used form of assessment, supported in many e-learning systems. Mooshak is a web system which supports automated assessment in computer science. This paper presents Moozz, a quiz assessment environment for Mooshak 2.0, with its own XML definition for describing quizzes. This definition is used for: interoperability with different e-learning systems, generating HTML-based forms, storing student answers, marking final submissions and generating feedback. Furthermore, Moozz also includes an authoring tool for creating quizzes. The paper describes Moozz, its quiz definition language and architecture, and details its implementation.
