A question has the button marked "Check" after it. I'm not sure I understand what it does. Could this be a little more verbose? The same could be said for things like that little flag. I've flagged the question, but why / what does it actually do (assuming it does something that is)?
I agree and am looking for a solution. Is there a way so that you can't "check answers" until you have submitted the quiz???
In moodle 2.1 beta if you don't wish that check button appear should use deffered feedback.
Ok. Where can I access the control to activate the deferred feedback?? I'm not seeing it in the quiz settings...thanks!
If anyone is as novice as me it's located in the >site administration > plugins > activity modules > quiz
Actually, no. That is where you set the default setting for all newly created quizzes.
To change the setting for a particular quiz, it is on Quiz settings -> Edit settings.
I can just say that we have been using this UI for years at the OU with no apparent problem. But I am still listening (reading) what people say.
As Nikita pointed out, how the question in the quiz behave is controlled by the 'How questions behave' setting on the quiz form, which replaces the old choice Adaptive mode: yes/no.
The best way to understand what all those modes do is to preview a question. You can try all the different modes in the preview window.
I worry when end users are given options
It "flags" the question so that, prior to completing the attempt one can see which questions may need re-visiting.
From the start that this new feature was introduced I've been skeptical about its real usefulness.
and other people love it. So, you can just ignore it, or turn it off, and allow others to enjoy it.
This one is controlled by a capability moodle/question:flag.
The graphic designer working on the theme for the OU VLE came up with a nicer design - basically a smaller flag with some visible text. I like it, so I may well make that change in standard Moodle before 2.1 is released.
