With this question type the student has to solve the assignment in GeoGebra. The state of the applet is saved to Moodle for grading or in case it has been possible to automatically grade the assignment for review.

The question type supports randomization of sliders in the applet and substitute variables in the question text with this slider values.

If there are boolean objects present in the applet which indicate the correctness of a solution, those objects can be used for automatically grade the assignment.

    Is this Plugin still working with Moodle 3.6 or 3.7?

    hello developers, I tried to update the plugin and it does not work. Could it be that the data in the version.php file is not correct?

    Now yes, thanks!!!.

    Please reconsider updating to version 3.5 because I am updating my environment to that version and I'm very useful.

    Hi, this plugin is great but does not seems to work on 3.7. Your message posted on mar. 25 juin 2019, 18:52 seems to annonce it will not be updated anymore ? Do you confirm ?

    Hi, I've been using the qtype_geogebra plugins, in Moodle 3.5+ and it worked fine for me. But I have come across the restriction that I can only evaluate 20 variables. Will there be a way to evaluate more variables?

    Tenía instalada esta extensión en Moodle 3.5 y al actualizar a 3.7 me ha dejado de funcionar. He instalado la versión 1.0.5 (2019070101). Al editar preguntas que incluían geogebras varios campos (nombre de la pregunta, enunciado y puntuación por defecto) que están rellenos me los muestra como si estuvieran aún vacíos. Se os ocurre alguna forma de solucionarlo? Gracias de antemano.

    Hola: Antonio González.
    De hecho en Moodle 3.5 el plugin qtype_geogebra ya tenia algunos detalles, como por ejemplo si querías navegar por las preguntas de un examen (regresarse) te cambia los valores de los deslizadores por lo cual los alumnos tenían que volver a contestar o se los marcaba mal; lo cual corregía restringiendo la navegación en la edición del examen. O en preguntas numéricas se tienen que hacer auxiliares para las respuestas con números decimales (por que el alumno no pondrá todo el numero completo y se marcara mal). Pero nunca he tenido problemas con : nombre de la pregunta, enunciado y puntuación por defecto en Moodle 3.5.

    En los comentarios del foro dicen que por lo pronto no habrá actualizaciones para versiones mas nuevas de Moodle, lo cual es una mala noticia para los que nos gusta incluir preguntas hechas en GeoGebra.

    The official answer from the International Geogebra Institute si confirmed here :

    So it will be no longer possible to use Geogebra files as question type in Moodle.
    (thus it will be for example no longer possible to make a Test with multiple questions but using only one ggb file multiple times with random variables at each new question and automatic grade calculation on the Moodle side).

    P.S.: thanks to the hard work of Sara Arjona Téllez and Pau Ferrer Ocaña from the Projectes TAC Dep. Educació Catalunya it's still possible to use Geogebra ativity in Moodle, but you'll have to script inside the ggb file itself the mutliple questions with random variables and the grade calculation: )

    I have a sample Geogebra question type in Moodle and whenever I go to the preview page the preview is a total mess. This might be an error in themes but just want to confirm it here.
