Matrix question type. Adds support for k' grading as well as a streamlined user interface.

This question type allows the teacher to define the rows and columns that make up a matrix. Students can select either multiple or single answers per row, depending on how the question has been configured. Each row receives a grade defined by one of the grading methods. The final grade for the question is an average of their grades for each of the rows.

    the style.css is full of !important, which should never be used generally. These three rules basically affect every pages (especially for tablet users)

    #page-content .region-content{
    overflow: visible !important;

    #page-content #region-main {
    overflow: visible !important;
    #page-content {
    overflow: visible !important;

    Just to save people the trouble - this does not work on 3.0 and in fact causes a whole heap of problems if you try. ref:

    Martin, it seems you're referring to the outdated version of this plugin (listed here on this page). However, as stated at the top of this page, "See repo for latest [...] versions". The latest version available from GitHub since last September (see "Source control URL" link above) works fine on Moodle 2.7-3.0.

    Hi Nicolas - thanks for the clarification. It may be advisable to amend the text at the top of the page in that case, because I read that line as suggesting that the latest and older versions were 1.9 and 2.0, not that this version from this page was 1.9 and 2.0 which I'm guessing from your comment is actually the case.

    Yes, there should be a "+" sign at the right end of the table.

    is it possible to have an excel report that will show how test takers answered for each of the statements inside each of the matrix questions?
    thank you!

    Hi Nicolas,
    I've just restored a course that uses these matrix questions. Its restored the grade, but not the individual responses. Is there any way to migrate this data without a deep SQL knowledge?
