Written assessment has to be 100% correct!!! As we all know this is just about an impossible task, so I came up with the following solution. Student commences assessment and if s/he gets an answer wrong s/he will receive automatic feedback why the answer is wrong. Unfortunately from now on s/he is not eligible to pass, but is encouraged to complete the assessment for learning purposes and can have as many wrong answers. To pass this assessment s/he has to start the assessment again from the beginning. I would like to see the questions shuffled and a time gap in between the first and any subsequent assessment attempt. I would like to use hotpotato for these assessments, but have very limited knowledge of this program. I have made a sample assessment with all the questions, answers and possible feed back, but this is where I got stuck. How can I set it up so it only accepts a 100% pass rate, a time gap in between attempts and shuffling of the questions? Perhaps someone has a better idea? I am still using Moodle 1.9 but will most likely upgrade in the next year or so.
I suggest you put all your questions, answers and feedback into a JQuiz exercise. You can enable the following setting within JQuiz if you want the questions shuffled into a different order each time they are displayed to the students:
- Options -> Configure Output -> Other -> Shuffle order of questions each time page loads
You can add the JQuiz file to Moodle 1.9 using the HotPot module, but if you want a delay between attempts I suggest you use the QuizPort module. The QuizPort module is the successor to the HotPot module module, but it is not included in the standard download of Moodle 1.9, so you will have to downoad it and install it separately:
The QuizPort module allows you to put several Hot Potatoes exercises into a single QuizPort activity. You can add post-conditions to the exercises so that students can only finish the exercise if they get the required score - 100% in your case. The post-conditions would look something like this:
- >= 100%: end of unit
- same quiz
In plain English this means, "If the score for the Hot Potatoes exercise is 100%, then this student has finished this QuizPort activity, otherwise show the same exercise again".
On the settings page for the Hot Potatoes exercise within QuizPort you can specify delays between attempts at the exercise:
- delay1: the minimum delay between first and second attempts
- delay2: the minimum delay between attempts after the second attempt
If you need help installing the QuizPort module, please let us know.
Thank you so much Gordon, again anythink I can think of or wisch for is availabel! Well ..... almost neither Hotpotato nor Moodle makes coffee .... not yet anyway
