We are an online institute and offer classes over internet and moodle 2.5 is our prime educational resource for communication with the students. Courses are free and we want the students to record their own attendance (e.g. 1. whether they attended live, 2. have they listened to recording 3. do they need recording, or 4. are they on leave etc) on moodle. So for example, if a course class meets two days a week and the term lasts for 10 weeks, then the students have to mark their attendance status for 20 classes gradually updating it after every class or every week.
What we need to do is to make 20 multiple choice questions for 20 classes, giving them four options as stated above and we will keep this questionnaire open till the end of the term so students can access it any time and mark their attendance status and also be able to update their status for any class, once they have listened to the recording, for example.
The results of whole class should not be visible to students but only to the teacher. Now I am unsure which activity would work best that allows re-submission and also shows their earlier responses to the students so they may be able to update it. Quiz module seems complicated for this because of grading etc. Questionnaire once submitted cannot be edited, I guess?
The students would answer only two questions each week and can leave the remaining questions unanswered and so on and will complete the attendance record by the end of the term. I was wondering if choice module can have more than one questions or do I need to create multiple choice activities for each question? That would be too many activities (20) on course home page? or would it be possible to move those to a sub-page/folder within the course page. Any other activity can serve this purpose in a better way?
