Create tests that efficiently measure users' abilities by adapting the question difficulty to the estimate of the user's ability.

The Adaptive Quiz activity enables a teacher to create tests that efficiently measure the takers' abilities. Adaptive tests are comprised of questions selected from the question bank that are tagged with a score of their difficulty. The questions are chosen to match the estimated ability level of the current test-taker. If the test-taker succeeds on a question, a more challenging question is presented next. If the test-taker answers a question incorrectly, a less-challenging question is presented next. This technique will develop into a sequence of questions converging on the test-taker's effective ability level. The test stops when the test-taker's ability is determined to the required accuracy.

The Adaptive Quiz activity uses the "Practical Adaptive Testing CAT Algorithm" by B.D. Wright published in Rasch Measurement Transactions, 1988, 2:2 p.24 and discussed in John Linacre's "Computer-Adaptive Testing: A Methodology Whose Time Has Come." MESA Memorandum No. 69 (2000).

This Moodle activity module was created as a collaborative effort between Middlebury College and Remote Learner. The latest code, documentation, and bug-tracker can be found at https://github.com/middlebury/moodle-mod_adaptivequiz.

    Hello,

    I can't integrate this plugin into my moodle site sad After one or two questions, the quiz is aborted with this message:
    Error output, so disabling automatic redirect.


    Did you remember to call setType() for 'cmid'? Defaulting to PARAM_RAW cleaning.

    line 1316 of /lib/formslib.php: call to debugging()
    line 282 of /lib/formslib.php: call to moodleform->detectMissingSetType()

    Did you remember to call setType() for 'uniqueid'? Defaulting to PARAM_RAW cleaning.

    Hi,
    it would be great to be able to use this plugin with current moodle versions. Do you have any plans of maintaining the plugin?

    This are the errors I have encountered so far:

    Is there any update for this plugin to works with the version 2.6 of moodle?
    I'm getting an error with that says the plugin doesn't have the version number.

    Any help?
