Version 2.44 of the Moodle WordSelect question type by Marcus Green. Jun 2020
Fixed an issue with embedded audio. If text appears after embedded audio selections are ignored when the question is submitted. This only happens when the multimedia filter is turned on. I have moved the format code to later in the renderer and this fixes the issue. My thanks to Henny Jellema for reporting this.
Thanks to Tim hunt for an update to styles.css to make CSS rules safer. This can help when using a custom theme.
Version 2.43 of the Moodle WordSelect question type by Marcus Green. Feb 2020
This version requires at least Moodle 3.7.0. It will not work correctly with earlier versions.
valeriia-s reported that word selection would not work if a page contained multiple instances of the question type. Tim Hunt advised me on ways to address it and in selection.js. This bought in the need for Moodle 3.7. https://github.com/marcusgreen/moodle-qtype_wordselect/issues/26
Fix for when forceclean is on from Hubong Nguen for the UK OU. https://github.com/marcusgreen/moodle-qtype_wordselect/pull/23 There is a plan for forceclean to default to on. https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-62352 Forceclean entirely broke Wordselect rendering (and other plugins).
Mahmoud Kassaei from the UK OU reported that trailing puncuation was hard to see on selected text https://github.com/marcusgreen/moodle-qtype_wordselect/pull/24 The CSS has been adjusted to make it clearer.
Behat (automated) tests broke on read-only and Tim Hunt of the UK OU contributed code as a fix. https://github.com/marcusgreen/moodle-qtype_wordselect/pull/25
Added more unit tests.
Version 2.42 of the Moodle WordSelect question type by Marcus Green. Nov 2019

Thanks to Tim Hunt and Sam Marshall of the OU for reporting the issue on templatepath in mobile.php
Thanks to Tim hunt for the fix for 'show num parts correct' and the behat updates.

Added more sample english language questions. Fixed line-height to ensure correct display in ios/mobile app Fixed error eslint checker that const is a reserved word (in mobile.js)

Significant new feature: support for the Moodle Mobile App. Added a collection of sample english language questions in examples\en\english_language.xml that can be imported.
Addition of defensive code for issue https://github.com/marcusgreen/moodle-qtype_wordselect/issues/15
Version 2.32 of the Moodle WordSelect question type by Marcus Green. December 2018
The clear incorrect responses and show number of correct responses checkboxes in Hints in the Multiple tries section of the editing form had no effect. This bug only had an effect when using the Interactive with multiple tries question behaviour. The behaviour is now as expected with selections being cleared and a count of correct responses being shown. My thanks to Dr Anna Stefanidou for reporting this issue.
Version 2.31 of the Moodle WordSelect question type by Marcus Green. August 2018
Fix to grading when using Interactive with multiple tries. Thanks again to Matthias Giger for reporting this. Fixed wordpenalty in sample questions and added new behat and phpunit tests.
Version 2.3 of the Moodle WordSelect question type by Marcus Green. August 2018
Version 2.2 of the Moodle WordSelect question type by Marcus Green. July 2018
Significant new feature, wordpenalty. Configure the fractional value to be deducted for each incorrectly selected word. Previously this was fixed at 1, i.e. for every incorrectly selected word one point was deducted down to zero. This could result in rather harsh grading. Now it can be configured as a fraction e.g. .5 of a mark deducted for each incorrect selection. Implemented as a list of percentages in the editing form called incorrect selection penalty. Thanks to to the person who suggested this feature. Thanks to Daniel Thies for help with testing.
Previously the penalty for incorrect attempts in interactive mode was ignored. Now the percentage is used to deduct marks for each submission.
Version 2.1 of the Moodle WordSelect question type by Marcus Green. May 2018
Added privacy classes as part of GDPR compliance. Further inclusion of tags such as setting color, more credit to lethevinha for that work.
Version 2.0 of the Moodle WordSelect question type by Marcus Green. April 2018
Multiword mode. If any text is surrounded by double delimiters e.g. cat it will be treated as correct, and any selectable non correct text must be given single delimiters e.g. [mat]. Text can thus include multiple words. CSS Formatting indicates which text is selectable.
Updated phpdocs comments, Added significant new behat and phpunit tests. Did some testing to check MathJax expressions will render as correct gaps in normal and multiword mode
New [w] icon with a hint of red. Added an svg vector version so no pixelation on zoom. Credit to Troy Patterson for ideas and inspiration on the icon
Huge credit to https://github.com/lethevinh for ideas, code and behat tests for ensuring formatting tags such as <b> etc are retained and other stuff.
