sorry to be slow to respond but I took a look at the issue you reported regarding the scoring of a JQuiz the is abandoned prematurely by pressing the STOP button.
On closer inspection, it seems the JQuiz scoring starts at 100% and gets modified as you progress through the questions in the JQuiz. If you answer the questions correctly first time, the score stays at 100%. If you make mistakes or ask for clues and hints, then the score goes down.
We could call this score the "on-going score". It seems to me that this is different from what one would expect to be the "total score".
When all the questions have been attempted, the "on-going score" is the same as the "total score", but while the student is doing the quiz, they may be different.
In a JQuiz with 4 questions, then after having answered 2 questions correctly, the "on-going score" is 100%, whereas the "total score" is 50%.
I have modified the code which handles the STOP button, so that for a JQuiz exercise, the "total score" is returned as the score for the quiz, rather than the "on-going score".
Please download the latest version of HotPot when you have a chance and let me know if it works better for you now.
sorry, my bad - looks like I forgot to update the Moodle.org plugins repository
I have uploaded the latest version now (2010080363). You can download it from here.
Please upgrade when you have time, and let me know how you get on.
thank you for your feedback patience.
I think we need to clear the HotPot cache. I will prepare a new version (2010080364). It will be ready in a few minutes. Please download it, and try again.
