Hi Jonas,

Only the questions that a user has created, or modified are exported in full.

For questions that are part of a quiz that the user has attempted, only the question that they attempted is exported, and the answer that they selected. We do not export all answers in this situation.

Re: Data privacy plugin and quizzes

Hi Andrew,

Thanks, that's a bit surprising, if I understood correctly the second sentence. That means that once the students find that option they will be able to easily cheat making collections of quizzes/answers and sharing between each other, not desirable at all for all learning environments? Is there a easy way this can be avoided or only messing around with code?  In my humble opinion personal data here should perhaps be limited to the final grade of the several attempts, or just the answer without the question. In other words, quizzes are not secret or hidden anymore in this scenario, even when the activity is hidden (after being active) the user can still download attempts with questions and answer texts? In any case, thanks a lot for the help and the clarifications.
