I need some help with Response options for a Numerical question in a Moodle Lesson. I teach math and after introducing a topic I am having students try to problem. I have set the Question type to be Numerical. I have set Answer 1 as the correct answer and provided a Response (Jump to the Next Page). I have anticipated other common mistakes and put in those answers as Answers 2-5 with constructive Responses corresponding to each of those answers and a chance to try again (Jump to This Page). The problem I need help with is that sometimes students are just way off the mark and they don’t enter any answer that matches my prescribed answers. I still want to offer them a helpful response and chance to try again. I have tried using a wildcard * as that unknown answer, but it is not working for me. All that happens is that the page gets kicked back to the question again, with no explanation—which can go on for an infinite loop. I would appreciate suggestions on how to be able to offer a response with an unknown answer and also how to create a way for students to get out of a loop if they are stuck at a problem and can’t go on. I am using Moodle 2.7.8.
I appreciate you in advance. ~Naomi
p.s. I uploaded an image of the possible answers for 4, 5 & 6 so you can see what I am talking about. All of my responses work except for 6.
