Project Description

Fix analytical tools for random quiz questions


In randomized question pools, the current display of question response statistics to instructors is inconsistent and confusing. This project aims make the statistics page consistent and clear for all quizzes, thus improving the overall pedagogical effectiveness and attractiveness of Moodle.

Project Cycle: July - December 2017

Anticipated release: tba

Proposer: Andrew Roderick, USA, California State University - Gold membership

Expanded question bank

Design notes
Adding a more flexible layer for question management in the question bank by creating a metadata layer (labels) for questions which is manageable by instructors at the course level. These labels would be usable with a 'random question from set' question type.
