The report lists all possible questions that could occur from random questions in a quiz, identifies which questions were answered by each user, if they were answered correctly and provides summary statistics such as how many times each question was asked.

    Thanks Dan for sharing the plugin with the community. I was able to use the report functionality and the overall code looks sane and well structured. You are cleared to land now, welcome to the Plugins directory!

    ¿Will you create a version for 2.8?

    I don't have any plans to do this as a volunteer, there is a 2.4 version in my github repo but that's unlikely to work with 2.8. Feel free to get in touch privately if you are able to fund the time to generate a version for 2.8

    Hello Dan, I installed your plugin from github in Moodle 3.1+ (Build: 20160701) but the maximum amount of questions per student is not correct I had a quiz of 130 questions that all were random from a pool of 230, 30 students took the exam and when i open the report only 73 questions from 130 appear as correct or incorrect from every student. Is there a parameter I can change to have all the attempts from all the questions visible?
    Thanks! Keep the good work

    It should only show questions in the report that were asked - is it possible that the other questions weren't in any of the students attempts? - if not there's probably a bug in there somewhere preventing it from showing the correct questions - sorry, I don't have time at the moment to look into this.

    Hello Dan, yes it must be a bug, it also has a problem with the pass and failed student counts. I checked with smaller question sets and once the question count goes avobe 160 the columns/ questions do not show. with smaller question sets everything shows.
    I hope you can get some time and energy to fix this because it is a great plugin, if not ill try to save some money
    to sponsor getting it fixed

    I tried using this plugin, but it doesn't provide correct data for randomly selected questions from the question bank. Total no. of questions in question bank is 35. Numbers of attempts in the quiz is 552. Can you please let me know what can be the problem ?

    plugin does not seem to work any more...

    yes - unfortunately we don't have anyone using this plugin in more modern versions of Moodle and the quiz structure changed slightly in 3.0 and higher - pull requests against the github repo are always welcome.

    How much work would it require to get it working for version 3.0 an higher?
    The need of analyzing random question quizzes can´t just have ended with 3.0 or is there some other feature doing this that I don't know of?

    Working with quiz data can be challenging but if you are interested in funding the time to update this plugin, feel free to get in touch privately and we can provide a quote - it would be really nice to see this updated!
