Multitrack test

Activities ::: mod_magtest
Maintained by Valery Fremaux
This activity proposes a multitrack test such as visible in magazines. Questions are defined with a predefined number of answer categories, one answer per category. If the participant chooses the answer, it gives points to the relevant category. Each category drives a scoring track and the feedback of the most rated category is given. The result of the test can be used to generate groups in the course.
