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.

    Hi Kees, my tests were positive indeed, using the Moodle 2.3 version

    I've installed this brilliant module on our 2.4 site but in the questions tab we cannot delete, or move up and down the questions. We can't delete the responses either...
    Could you advise?

    Thanks for reporting. Will be checked soon.

    Hai Valery,

    I want to install this plugin this week. Have you already solved this problem?
    (... the questions tab we cannot delete, or move up and down the questions. We can't delete the responses either...)

    Cheers, Kees.

    That's great, I can now delete questions or move them up or down. Didn't find the way to delete responses though. Still a great module. Thanks.

    Is there any way to change the button from "Save" to "Save and Continue" on the test screen?

    Will change it in next releases.... in the meanwhile, you can edit language strings with the strings editor in Admin -> Language -> Language customization

    Valery, Thank you so much! It worked great! I want you to know that we are using your fantastic plugin to help our students identify their particular learning style, (visual, auditory, tactile). I have found that your plugin is perfect for this. Thank you so much for your hard work!

    runs quite good... just some help icons that should be recoded to popup the helpers correctly.... probably some light review to do in debug mode to track architecture obsolescence....
