moodle version 1.9.8
I have organized a quiz which covers several different areas and would like to be able to see subscores for the different areas.
I have done this by coding each question's value based on the topic area.
For example each question in area I is worth 1 point, area II is worth 10 points, area III is 100 points. Each area has less than 10 questions, so the resulting total score's digits gives the subscores by their placement.
Unfortunately there is a limit on the size of a score on the quizzes and the gradebook. For the grade book it seems to be 100,000. I have 6 sub areas to analyze so this is a problem. Any suggestions?
I have been able to use a base seven scoring code to overcome the limit on the quiz score, but this is still too large for the grade book and requires an external decoder (also needed with base ten- though that is simply the sum of the digits to get a total score.)
