The Question Creation Activity is a graded activity where students must create questions in the Moodle question bank. A teacher grades the questions.

The students get a grade for the questions they create.

You can specify a percentage of the grade to be automatically assigned depending on how many of the required questions the student creates and the rest of the grade awarded to the student to be dependent on the grade a teacher assigns for the questions created. 

It is possible to choose that the activity is 100% automatic grading without any teacher manual grading, or 100% manually graded by teachers.

You can chose the question types students will be allowed to create and the number of questions required to complete the activity.

    I am using this plugin in Moodle 2.7. Works great. I have one suggestion for the next update (if it is possible). In the grading screen, maybe give the grader/teacher the ability to delete the attempt/question. Some questions can be very terrible and giving it a zero "encourages" the students to redo it, however it does not force them to redo it.

    Fantastic plugin, but would be good if there was a way for the teacher to choose between grading vs add question view, so they can see and follow a long with students making their first question.

    Hi,

    with Moodle 3.0 the student got this permission error:

    ~~~
    Debug info:
    Error code: nopermissions

    Stack trace: •line 784 of /lib/accesslib.php: required_capability_exception thrown
    •line 182 of /question/question.php: call to require_capability()
    ~~~
    Any help, please ? It's Question creation 2.02 for Moodle 2.7.

    HelloMiro,
    Thanks for the report. I will do some tests but this is the first time such a problem is reported and I have tested the qcreate module with Moodle 3.0 and 3.1dev.
    Can you test that your cron is working and executed at very short intervals ? As noted in the readme, this activity needs that your Moodle cron is working and executed at regular and short intervals (I suggest 1 minute) because the question creation activity rely on scheduled tasks to upgrade grades and more importantly to update students capacities on question categories

    I have made some tests and I am unable to reproduce Miro's problem with Moodle 3.0 and moodle 3.1dev.
    For me all is working as expected.
    But I have released a new versions because during these tests I have found some very minor and not related things to fix.
    Miro, if you can verify that your cron is working and that the qcreate scheduled tasks are executed and you still have this problem, please open an issue in the bug tracker

    It would be good if it were possible to see the add question page like students do, even when logged in as a teacher. I realise you can swap roles, but it is a bit frustrating when demonstrating how to use to the students.

    Hello,
    I am sorry but I am now retired and I stopped Moodle coding. So I will not publish new versions and this plugin needs a new maintainer

    I have test it with some degree of success on Moodle 3.1.5. The major flaw at this stage is the fact that the graded questions are not anywhere to be seen on the question bank. Im also not sure if haven't configured it properly or if this is a bug. Anyhow is a great idea and so it would be very nice if someone could maintain it.
