Maintained by Picture of Jean-Michel Védrine Jean-Michel Védrine
The all-or-nothing multiple choice question is a version of the core multi-answer multiple choice question with modified grading. In an all-or-nothing multiple choice question, a respondent can choose one or more answers. If the chosen answers correspond exactly to the correct choices defined in the question, the respondent gets 100%. If he/she chooses any incorrect choices or does not select all of the correct choices, the grade is 0%.

All or Nothing Question
This is a multiple-choice, multiple-response question type that was created by
Adriane Boyd and is now maintained by Jean-Michel Vedrine (vedrine@univ-st-etienne.fr).

Description

The all or nothing question is adapted from the existing multichoice question.
The main difference from the standard Moodle multiple choice question type is
in the way that grading works.
The teacher editing interface is slightly modified as when creating the question, the teacher just
indicates which choices are correct.

Grading:

In an all-or-nothing multiple choice question, a respondent can choose one or more answers.
If the chosen answers correspond exactly to the correct choices defined in the question, the respondent gets 100%.
If he/she chooses any incorrect choices or does not select all of the correct choices, the grade is 0%.
Before using this questiontype, teachers must really think if this grading is what they want.

Sets

This plugin is part of set Seeking new maintainer.

    Jean-Michel, excellent work! Thank you!
    We will upgrade to latest 2.6 in a month or so, but if you have the instructions that would be really appreaciated - this was found in testings of our upcoming 2.6 emvironment, but we also use the question type in our 2.4 and don't know if someone might be using it with multiple attempts.

    We cannot export questions of this type, in any of the three formats. We would like to be able to export in Moodle XML format and import in another course. Is this possible? How? (We are using Moodle 2.6.3+)

    Thanks,

    Richard

    Hello Richard,
    The only import/export format that question types plugins can easily support are GIFT and Moodle XML, no support for plugins is available in Moodle code for other format. I never implemented GIFT import export because nobody asked for it (and in fact I think it would be hard to do for qtype_multichoiceset because there is no way to differentiate multichoice and multichoiceset questions) but Moodel XML import and export is implemented and works.
    Tell me what exact version of multichoiceset you use and I will do some tests to verify it is working as expected.

    Hello Jean-Michel,

    Just wanted to confirm - if this plugin is compatible with Moodle 2.9? The version tab seems to have conflicting details.

    Regards,
    Anant Sahni

    Hello Jean-Michel,

    Are you still maintaining this code?

    Best,

    Yes I am still maintaining this plugin (which is in fact easy as most of the code is in fact in qtype_multichoice, this is why an unique version works with so many Moodle versions wink )

    Hi Jean-Michel -

    This plugin is in the "seeking maintainer" list (https://moodle.org/plugins/browse.php?list=set&id=61). Is that a mistake?

    Hi Jean-Michel,

    Do you have any update on the "seeking maintainer" status? Your plugin is still on the list, but your post on Jan 23rd suggests otherwise - are you still maintaining it for the moment, but looking for someone to take it on if possible? Or is the listing a mistake?

    Thanks,

    Erica

    Hi Jean-Michel,

    Am I correct in stating that this plugin creates a new question type in Moodle? Or does it change the behaviour of the exisiting multiple choice question type?

    I just checked with Jean-Michel, and he said he's retired and is no longer maintaining this plugin. Hopefully someone will take it over. I don't have the skill set, at the moment.

    Kristian, you're correct. It's a new question type.

    I just installed this on a local installation I have of Moodle 3.1 and it appeared to work fine, including exporting/importing using Moodle XML format (GIFT still doesn't work, as mentioned previously). For some reason, the first time I tried to install, I got an error message (https://docs.moodle.org/31/en/error/debug/codingerror), but all I did was try again and it worked.
