- Safe Exam
- Timed Quiz
Present Use case of mobile offline quiz
The student does not have continuous internet access on mobile, downloads the quiz, attempts it offline, syncs when network becomes available.
Alternate Use Case: Proctored Exams on MobileIn a proctored classroom, the student downloads a quiz on a mobile, all network connectivities and mobile functionalities are denied, attempts the quiz in the given time, gets additional time in case of hardware failures, submits the answers when the timer ends.
Need of Alternate Use Case
In large classes (very common in India), it is difficult to find a good desktop infrastructure where more than 50 students can be seated to take an online exam. It is, however, very easy to find large classrooms with normal desks (easily up to 200), and with good wifi or 4G access; and every student has a smart-phone (but only a few have a laptop or an iOS device). Developing functionalities of a Safe Exam Browser (not currently available for android) on a native mobile app, that not only prevents other app access but also denies network access (wifi, bluetooth, mobile data, etc) is a major need to bridge the gap in use of online assessment capability of moodle. And this can have benefits on scale for moodle's deployment in developing countries.
