Maintained by Picture of Valery Fremaux Valery Fremaux
The splitset question is alike a matrix question but with simpler model. Il allows layouting a serie of questions with a common set of possible answers (f.e. yes/no, allowed/not allowed, less/more/equal ...).

The split set question type implements a quiz question based on
list splitting activity.

You may define from 2 to 4 output sets where a list of items can
be split in.

the activity consists in defining which output suits to each item,
collecting a fraction of the maximum grade for each correct subanswer.

Typical use with 2 sets :

A multiple true/false question array.
A allowed/forbidden quiz with a set of behaviour or acts proposal

Typical use with three set :

A Less/Equal/More with a set of comparison questions

    I like your plugin. Thanks!
    But there is a problem with me: The Items in question aren't saved when backing up the set splitting questions.

    I hope you fix it!

    It will be possible/ is it possible to configure grades?
    e.g. define negative marks, percentage for each answer etc. ?

    Hi Valery,

    Please could you look at: - as I think a parent class method parameters may have changed in core.

    I'm using your question type Set Spliting since last year and I really like it.
    My problem today is that neither the audio or the pictures are charging in the "item to be soarted" area. I don't know if it's because it's not upgraded (I'm using Moodle 2.9.8) but I remembered I was able to do this in a previous Moodle version that I owned. I really need to insert audio and it's not workind anymore.

    Any suggestions ?

    Thank you !

    Hi all, splitset has been released for all moodle version up to 3.2 fixing backup/restore an question presentation.
    Related to attached files or media embed, this is not actually yet in scope as adding significant changes and testing (file API of moodle is NOT neutral). This is not planned at the moment as having a very lot of other priorities over it.
