I've got a student who's not like most students: she wants to do again an exercise she's already got a score of 100% on. In fact, she's completed the whole Unit of 9 exercises. It's only the 9th she wants to do again. She doesn't want to have restart from the beginning
The Unit has Previous quiz as pre-condition and Menu of all quizzes as a post-condition (except for the last quiz which has End of unit. The students are allowed unlimited attempts and to resume.
Is there a way to allow this student to do what she wants, while requiring all the students to do the exercises in order the first time? They can already to this until they finish the unit - I mean go back and do previous exercises again, but not after they've finished the Unit.
I'm not Gordon and I am not using QuizPort yet - I am just starting to read up on it and getting some understanding of it. So maybe I am the last person that should answer you . Nevertheless, as I understand it, the QuizPort is some sort of an organiser (I'm South African - we spell 'organise' with an 's' ) for controlling the flow of answering quizzes. It is a sort of 'wrapper' that gives you more control. I'm just thinking aloud here - maybe someone (Gordon ?) will respond and correct me.
What is there that prevents you from doing it the old way and just adding a separate HotPot quiz (not inside of QuizPort) which this student can then answer? You can then provide her with the single exercise and voilà!
Hi Glenys, Hi Marius,
this idea has come up briefly before:
On the above thread, I suggested a workaround similar to the one Maruis did, namely create a duplicate QuizPort containing the same quizzes but no pre- or post-conditions, and then specify the original QuizPort as a previous activityfor the duplicate, along with a required grade of 80% or so.
It is apparent to me now that such a "Unit review" is something that would be very useful, so I will go and have a good think about how it could be implemented.
Yes, a one-off solution for this student is possible, but, maybe I'm lazy, I'm looking for a permanent solution for future serious students who are not satisfied with getting things right just once. I'm also looking for one that doesn't clutter up the Moodle page too much because students get confused. One of the things that's so wonderful about QuizPort is that so much clutter from my courses has been removed.
It also seems to have solved the problem of students being ejected from my courses because of server overload which happened with the Hot Potatoes version of WebRhubarb exercises.
Thanks a million for that, Gordon.
