Interactive with explanation question behaviour Build Status

By Marcus Green. Contact Moodle Partner Titus Learning (http://www.tituslerning.com) for custom development and consultancy.

Introduction

This Moodle question behaviour is based heavily on Tim Hunts deferred feedback with explanation question behaviour. https://github.com/timhunt/moodle-qbehaviour_deferredfeedbackexplain It has a requirement that this local plugin is also installed, which allows customisation. https://github.com/marcusgreen/moodle-local_qbehaviour_interactiveexplain

This behaviour is like the interactive with multiple attempts behaviour,  but with an additional text box where students can give a reason why they gave the answer they did. No attempt is made to automatically grade the explanation, nor is it required. However, it may be used in various ways, for example

  1. The teacher may want to manually edit the grades where the student gave a wrong answer, to give partial credit if the student used the right method or approach.
  2. The student might want to explain their thinking, so that later, when the results and feedback are revealed, they are reminded of what they were thinking at the time, and so can reflect more deeply.

Note: 3rd party question behaviours do not work with the mobile app and there is no API at the moment to allow for that.

    Hi Marcus, great plugin and very useful for learning. Would you know whether this will work on 3.5?

    Because it is really an extension of Tim Hunts question behaviour that works with Moodle versions going back to 3.1 I strongly expect that this will work with 3.5. But I couldn't be absolutly certain without testing. If you were to install to test I cannot imagine any harm it would do.

    I vaguely recall that picking 3.6 was an arbitrary choice to limit which versions I would have to support. To be able to test it you would have to change the requires value in this file https://github.com/marcusgreen/moodle-qbehaviour_interactiveexplain/blob/master/version.php to match the value in your moodle version.php. Depends how technical you feel.
