    Hi Mike,

    Around line 72 of locallib.php the "never" option seems to have been dropped from the array:

    $questionnaireresponseviewers =
    array ( QUESTIONNAIRE_STUDENTVIEWRESPONSES_NEVER => get_string('responseviewstudentsnever', 'questionnaire'),

    I just put that back on our installation and it all works as expected. The strings are still there and the behavior on the front end for students works, so code controling the view must still be using this.

    I am wondering if this was just an error or whether it was removed from the code deliberately?

    just a question, why we can not add questions directly in the form (edit setting) as do other plugins?

    thank you

    I am supporting a course in which 720 students in groups of 4 & 5 (so 170 groups) have to rate each others contribution. we want to use a 'questionnaire' to create 'peer contribution rating'. We have students list as CSV file, we want to build a questionnaire where separate groups can log-in and rate other students within that group against several contribution criteria. We want the students names to be automatically uploaded and shown in the questionnaire (rows for the 4 or 5 students' names, columns for the contribution criteria) -similar to WebPA. Do you think we can do this with this questionnaire? if not, any ideas? thank you

    Hi not sure if anyone can help, but my moodle server, installed fine wit the plugin (latest one) and then I made a quiz, all fine. I did it myself as Admin but then now when I try it again it is locked out.

    My error is...

    If you are the webmaster of this site please log in to Cpanel and check the Error Logs. You will find the exact reason for this error there.

    Common reasons for this error are:
    •Incorrect file/directory permissions: Above 755.
    In order files to be processed by the webserver, their permissions have to be equal or below 755. You can update file permissions with a FTP client or through cPanel's File Manager.

    •Incorrect Apache directives inside .htaccess file.
    Make sure you have not specified unsupported directives inside the local .htaccess file. Such include PHP settings and Apache module settings.

    I then checked on the FPT and found that a lot of files are 666 access and the subfolders 777.

    I have no idea what they should be, can anyone help.

    It seems a serer issue, not a plugin one, but the plugin created the folders on its own and I cannot find a link to see where.

    Any help appreciated?

    Hi again,

    I may have fixed it, I found some advice about permissions so I set...

    all files in the main "mod" folder to 644
    all folders and files recursive - subfolders to 755.

    Does that cause any issues, as it seems to work?

    For people considering this module, I suggest enabling the Feedback module (Site admin -> Plugins -> Activity modules). Feedback is part of the standard Moodle distribution, is well maintained and offers equivalent functionality to Questionnaire.

    I couldn't disagree more. Questionnaire is so much better maintained, has so much more functionality and such a better appearance. I even asked Martin D about this and why Moodle core chose Feedback and he said at the time it appeared Feedback was going to become much more robust but that's not how it turned out. Maybe Moodle HQ feels differently now that Remote Learner has stopped being a Moodle Partner but IMO, if that's the case, we don't need those games in this community.

    Is there a way to do activity completion based on the response? If a user says "no" to a survey, could they "fail" the questionnaire?

    Will there be an update soon for PHP 7 support? Right now, with the latest version of Moodle 3.0 with PHP 7 support, questionnaire is causing the entire course to not load. I reported this here:

    Running version 2015102800

    We use the 2.8.11 version of Moodle. We can't add questions anymore since the release of the 2.8.11

    First, make sure you are using the latest 2.8 release of questionnaire (2.8.3 - or If you are using that, and are still having problems, post in the questionnaire forum ( providing more detail of what steps you are doing and what errors you are seeing.

    Our sequence of questions need to differ from the sequence of the output (e.g. questions of section 8 needs to be in the top of the radar). How to do this?
