### Writing Quizzes in other programming languages

Re: Writing Quizzes in other programming languages

Thanks for posting Charlie, that should work but you should consider something like

$DB->get_record('question_categories',['id'=>$cat_id)

Then it will work if someone has a prefix other than mdl.

See

I suspect most people most of the time leave the default mdl_ but  it is nice to cover unusual situations.
