Just about any system will do peculiar things if you open two windows and perform contradictory activities. Give me a login to any system and with two windows open I will demonstrate unexpected behaviour.
I am not questioning Tim's ability
He is handling a large project and I respect his experience.
My point is only one that if we wrote wrong password in popup of quiz password it asked again. Then we write right password and quiz started in popup. Now if student minimize that popup he saw quiz password needed in main window too so he enter right password there too. so now he has 2 instances opened of one quiz which is confusing (You understand it or not it is confusing - May be all students are not as smart as you are )
What my point is if student enters wrong password in popup and then he wrote right password in popup itself then password should not needed in main window too. That's it.
Now you create a quiz, add a quiz password, appears in quiz with popup browser, wrote wrong password once, wrote right password in second chance, then minimize popup window then I hope you understand what I want to say.
I agree that using the pop-up might lead students into confusing situations from a usability point of view, if they switch between the pop-up and the main window. However, that is a very different statement from staying that the underlying quiz/question engine has a bug.
No one if forcing you to sue the pop-up (it's probably my least-favourite feature, but I am not allowed to remove it.)
Anyway, I still struggle to see the problem: If a student is just concentrating on doing well in the quiz: the start it, type the password, concentrate on answering the questions, then submit, then there is no problem. It is only a student who messes around with things like switching windows, rather than just answering the questions, who can get confused. If students lose out by messing around, well that is not the worst thing ever.
Thanks for reply.
I am not asking to change POP-UP functionality.
I want that only one instance of quiz runs at a time whether its on pop up or in main window.
There should not be two different instances.
