Provides tables showing, for a quiz containing MCQs:

  • Summary statistics for quiz results

    Hi Steve,
    Thanks for submitting your report. It installs fine on 2.4 here and i saw my mcq report perfectly smile.

    There a few things we can consider doing to share this well:
    - Renaming the git repository to 'moodle-quiz_mcq' to align with repository naming conventions.
    - Add a issue tracker url, this could just be or a request new component @ Consider adding documentation and website urls too if any.
    - Specify in installation/README.txt that user should install into mod/quiz/report/ directory.

    Hi Aparup,

    Thanks for the comments, I've made the suggested changes. Are there any more stages to go through before approval?

    Note: upon sending string to AMOS an error hit was @ string 'warningaverage'

    Error: AMOS threw exception mlang_parser_exception: Error: Expected character ; at line 69

    You will need to fix up lang/en/quiz_mcq.php and up load a new version for AMOS ( to properly parse your lang file. The issue is the concatenation operator (known issue). For now i suggest just refrain from using concatenation in lang files, just let the string wrap.

    Dear Arul,

    I'm afraid I don't know yet, I am still on 2.4. I will be testing on 2.5 and 2.6 in preparation for upgrade but I haven't done it yet. I am not aware of any changes to questions and quizzes that would stop it from working, but I can't be sure. If you give it a try, can you post here if you have any problems?

    I have a problem with the plugin.
    There is 1 answer for 1 student that not match with the real answer in the report.
    I have a moodle 2.2 and i have installed the plugin 1 month ago (latest version).

    This question is a simple QCM and there is only one attempt.

    I put the export of the test here :
    And the reporting here :

    As you can see the answer of ALLOU E. to the question 17 is not the same on the 2 files.

    Can you help me?
    Don't hesitate to contact me if you need more details.

    Arul: Thanks for trying it out. I will be working on this in the next few couple of months, to make it work on 2.6, so watch this space. As for your grader report, I'm afraid I can't help you with that - I'm not an expert Moodle developer and I don't know much about the gradebook. Sorry!

    Seb - I've replied separately to you; if there's a bug I'll post the update here when fixed.
