    Great to hear from you! I haven't seen any notifications of your message. So, I'll send you an email with description, screenshots and exported questions.
    THANK you so much for your attention!

    I'm wondering if it is possible to have answers that earn partial credit, so one answer that is the best and earns all points, but one answer that is partially correct and earns a percent of the points?
    Example, you might ask the student to select a healthy snack option and in the cloze question type you could write {1:MULTICHOICE:%50%Orange Juice~%50%Apple Juice~%100%Strawberries~%0%soda} And the result is the student earns half points possible if they choose orange juice or apple choice, all points possible if they choose strawberries, and zero points if they choose soda.
    Thanks!

    Thanks for the feedback Tiffany. The question type is limited to 1 mark per gap in order to keep the syntax as simple as possible. The Moodle core Cloze question type features some complex scoring capability in the manner you describe. I have been working on a new feature to allow per-gap feedback without requiring complex syntax. You can see an illustration here

    Hi Marcus. I think there is a a bug on app version when in adaptive mode. After you check the answers it seems it is impossible to replace them and submit them again within the same quiz attempt. I cannot at all seem to replace any answers after checking.

    Hi marisol, that looks like a bug to me and I think I know what it is. I will investigate and let you know when I have a fix. You can email me directly at marcusavgreen at gmail dot com.

    Hi Freddie, I am assuming you are referring to the mobile app version, I will investigate and get back to you.

    Hi Marisol, I have reproduced the issue that you experienced and I am working on a fix.

    I have tested Gapfill against a similar core question type with the Adaptive behaviour. It seems to work as I would expect.
    You can see a video of it here

    In the video I am using dropdowns but I get similar results when using drag and drop. The video is when
    using the Moodle desktop app which is built from the same source as the Mobile app and is running the same
    code as for mobile. I have also tested on the mobile app as well. Email me directly at marcusavgreen at gmail dot com if you want to follow up.

    Hi Marcus, is there a way to ignore blanks AND to have math symbols such as * % all in one answer ?
    For example I'd like to write : M = [N * 2] but I cannot put the asterisk * into the answer.
    * I know I can disable Regex but if do that, then, it will not ignore spaces.
    ** HTML also doesn't help cuz I work with asterisks for multiplication instead of "x"
    Thanks.

    I cannot think of a way of doing that. Have you considered the Formula or Algebra question types?

    Hi Marcus
    Gapfill is amazing and I am using in Moodle 3.4 server with version 1.971. However, it seems the gapfill questions are still not supported in the Moodle Mobile app (3.4.0). I had thought the plugin was usable in the app and am sure I have used it in the app??

    Glad you like it. The mobile app has been supported since February last year and I have various demo sites I test it on. What happens when you attempt to use it with the mobile app?. Probably best to email me at marcusavgreen at gmail dot com.
