I have the same problem I suspect it is the algorithm that shuffles the questions.
There may be a weighting system in the question dialog, I haven't looked.
The quick fix is more questions.
At the level I use the games, repeats are acceptable. It would be interesting to know what you are using Millionaire as a quiz for!
The algorithm that select a question is very simple. Selects random three questions and selects the one that is used fewer times for this game and for this student.
The same algorithm is used at the most games e.g. hangman.
Hi Vasilis, I work with Deb (the above messages) Thanks so much for your work on the game module. Its awesome and I use games as much as I can in post secondary ed also.
We did get the module updated but we are still having problems repeating questions. I made sure shuffle was off and in the edit for the game, there is no option to turn off any shuffling.
Also, when you try to choose an answer, I get black highlights on the answers and unless you hover over the letters and get an orange highlight, all you see is black and you can not read the answer choices.Thanks for any help!
You can send me your site by a private message or by email.
The only change is in line 583 where I set the background colour to White.
In a next version will be the ability to set the background and foreground colour.
I'm not sure if I understand the repeated question issue though.
Again thanks for what you do!!
the game module is very cool, but I still cannot solve the problem with repeating questions In quiz there are 15 questions and in every attempt of the game they are repeated. I have unchecked shuffle of questions in whole quiz and shuffle of answers in each question. Is there any possibility to disable random questions? If so, I could write questions in a way that every next question is more difficult, and the last one is the most difficult.
What you want is a serialized question bank with incremental difficulty. Start at the top and each question becomes more difficult.
For this you need editing rights. Go to the quiz question bank that you want to order.
Do a normal open, just click it. There are tabs at the top. Click edit.
You now have the ability to order the questions.
Save and close when complete.
You may also care to have a look at this link it gives an explanation to the issue of randomization.
In fact I have my questions ordered and if I launch quiz everything is just like I want to be. The problem begins when I want to use my quiz in the Millionaire game. It seems that game ignores order of questions and order of answers in each question. In addition in every attempt of the game several questions are repeated and this affects the sense of this game So my issue concerns only the game module, because normal Moodle quiz is working OK.
The first time asks the first or second question
The second time asks the third or fourth question
What you think about this scenario? If you agree I will change the millionaire to work in this way.
It sounds very interesting I suppose that then will be none repetitions at one attempt. I would be thankfull
Nevertheless, the solution from Vasilis Daloukas with 30 questions in my mind is very good
If one has few questions or want easy questions in the begining and difficult later I suggest the solutions with 30 questions.
Of course if there are 45 questions the game will select one of three questions for each stage.
Will be a parameter to select the one or the other algorithm.
There is a parameter named "Randomize questions:" in millionaire Game when the input source is quiz
When the parameter is true works with the standard way.
When the parameter is false works with the above method of 30 questions.
The second problem is that sometimes one or two questions in the quiz are repeated one by one, for example: the 4th question is the same as the 5th. In the question bank there are no identical questions of course
Are there any solutions for these issues?
