Changes in 2.0

  • Multiple-choice, single-response sub-questions are now available using the standard Moodle multiple choice question type.
  • Multiple-choice (single or multiple) sub-questions now have an option for whether the choices should be numbered.
  • Admins can control some default settings. The defaults start as: multiple-choice options should be shuffled and should not be numbered.

  • Fixed a minor bug that happened when you tried to save an invalid question.
  • Fixed the automated tests to pass on the latest Moodle version.
