I want to setup a system in where students will be able to check off things they have completed sort of like checklists. I found the checklists module and it seems it would work but I also need a text area to add more information about that checklist item. Is there a way to accomplish this in moodle?
I also have a set of questions that I want students to answer in text form. Lets say there are 5 questions I need answered every week. These questions are the same every week but the answers the student submits should be different. What would be the best way to do this?
We are looking for answers to similar problems. I notice that you posted this about a year ago, did you find a solution? We have used questionnaires and the glossary as a workaround, but I am interested to see what others do with the checklist feature.
Waht version are you using? In Moodle 2.0+ you can turn on completion tracking in order to check off things users have completed.
Have you tried the chercklist plugin written by Davo Smith? http://www.wickes.co.uk/lisburn-ply-veneer-door-1981x762mm/invt/205842/
It's brilliant an think it has been writen for your kind of issue. If it does not fit, Davo works as a plugin developer and he has done some great things for me.
Best of luck
Sorry for the link to a door when you all expected something about checklists! This is the real one ..
This might prove more useful (unless you happen to want a door I am recycling).
Haha love it Ed - you made me laugh out loud We definitely need more Wickes doors on moodle.org! (I could actually edit your post to correct the link, but I'm not going to!)
