I've been playing around with trying to get the correct quiz behaviour but can't see how it is possible between Interactive with multiple tries/Adaptive mode (no penalties). The functionality I'm after is the following:
1. Students have one attempt at a quiz (~20 questions, attempt in any order), but can have unlimited attempts at each question.
2. Students are immediately told if question is correct/incorrect. If incorrect, students may reattempt that part straightaway.
3. Students don't receive any feedback (i.e. worked solution) until:
- they get a question correct (this quiz is a graded piece of coursework with numerical answers: happy for students to spend time working on it but mustn't be given answers)
- OR they "give up" (the feedback and correct answer from the question is needed for later parts).
3. If students give up, then they get 0 for that question (no further attempts allowed after they have seen the correct answer).
I see a few options to proceed: none of which fulfils what I am trying to do.
- Use interactive with multiple tries (x1 attempt) with N blank hints (which allows for N+1 attempts). This is not the unlimited attempts I was looking for in (1), but is maybe my best option.
- Adaptive mode (no penalties): if a student is really not getting the correct answer, there is no way for them to "give up" and reveal the answer needed for subsequent questions.
The following won't work
- Any quiz with unlimited attempts (and highest/first grading method). If a student gets a question wrong (or leave a question blank) then they receive the feedback, hence answer. I don't want to allow them to do the whole quiz again and artificially correct there mistake, but there are times when they need the feedback and points to make progress on subsequent questions.
I think there might be a clever workaround out there that I haven't thought of?! Does anyone have any bright ideas?
