Using Moodle 3.9.2 (Build: 20200914)
I'm currently helping a colleague import questions from an official exam where wrong answers are graded -250% (minus 250%). OK, I know that is a rather harsh/weird/call it what you like penalty, but I have to accept it. So I created a custom multichoice_custom question type based on the standard Moodle MULTICHOICE question type. This is working fine, creating a question features the -250% grade, including questions in a quiz works OK, backups and restoration of such quizzes work OK, exporting those questions is OK, etc.
The only problem I have is importing those questions, because the Import "match grades" is too strict or missing a 3rd option. What I would like to see in the Match grades dropdown list is:
Error if grade not listed
Nearest grade if not listed
Continue and import question if grade not listed
I do appreciate that the case I have to deal with is rather "borderline", but it's a real life case.
I've only found 2 posts on this forum related to this problem:
In that second post Tim says "The import has an option 'error if grade not listed' or something like that. If you turn that off, then the file should import OK." Unfortunately that is not true, you can't import questions which have non-standard grades for answers...
