I have set up all my quizzes so that the grade/mark that is recorded is the one given for the 'first attempt' (selecting this option in 'grading method'). Even though the quizzes are not intended as a test/exam, I'm interested in seeing what my students do so that in class I can address problems that I detect.
OK, so far so good. The problem comes when I go to 'view reports for X attempts' and I choose 'overview' or 'simple statistics'. Here what I see is a bit confusing for me. For most students there is a single attempt but for those students that have more attempts (2 or 3), I see things like the following:
Where 3 is the number of attempts.
So, if I have set up the quiz to give me the grade for the first attempt, how can it be that this student (and all the other students with more than one attempt) has a perfect score if the attempt that is shown to me is the first attempt. The only way I can make sense of this is if the student answered all the questions correctly and then s/he tried two more times to answer them even if s/he knew s/he had answered them correctly. But this is a bit counterintuitive.
If I click on the 3 (which is a link) it takes me to a table with the results that starts with the following information:
|Time taken:||6 mins 40 secs|
|Responses recorded:||dilluns, 4 febrer 2008, 10:55|
That would indicate that I'm viewing the results for attempt number 3, wouldn't it? But I am positive (and I have double checked it) that I selected 'first attempt' in 'grading method'.
Can anybody help me to get out of my confusion? Is there something wrong or I'm just not understanding something.
Oh, I forgot, there is also this other mistery:
Why all these zeroes if the result is 90?
