Test results released prematurely

Subject: Test results released prematurelyQuote this post in your reply
I create a new test and add questions to it. Some questions are open ended, some are yes/no.

Because of the open ended question I do not want the results to be released until the instructor has approved (marked) the answers.

Therefore I select the option:
"Release results - Once quiz has been submitted and all questions have been marked"

This does not work as I expect, though. The results are released once the test is submitted, and the open ended questions is assigned 0 points.

Am I missing something here?

Thanks for looking into this.

Atutor 1.6.2 (my own server as well as the demo server)

Confirmed. On the way to fix it.

For now, the work-around is to set the option to "Do not release results". mark all submissions and change the option to "Once quiz has been submitted".

Thanks for confirming, Cindy, and for the work-around.

The main use for the tests in my application is that different students that take the same tests over periods of time.

In this scenario it would be best if tests could not have en expiry date either, but that is another topic...

Thanks for the answer - looking forward to the fixsmile

Fixed into development trunk. You will see it in the next release, which is coming in a couple of weeks.

Great!

Is this something which I could patch manually into 1.6.2? I have two installations both in production, and I guess it will be a while before upgrading ...

Thanks again.

Replace the listed 5 files with the ones in attached zip:

tools/take_test.php
tools/take_test_q.php
tools/tests/view_results.php
include/classes/testQuestions.class.php
themes/default/test_questions/header.tmpl.php

Please backup the old scripts before overwriting them in case anything goes wrong with the new ones.

Thanks a lot for releasing the files! It seems to be working - almost:

If I have a quiz with both open ended & yes/no questions the results are not released.

If the quiz consist only of yes/no type questions the results are released immediately even though I have set the quiz to "Release results - Once quiz has been submitted and all questions have been marked".

( Now there may be that this is the intended operation, one could argue that yes/no questions are always marked automatically.)

In my application it would be great, however, if the quiz would not be released until the instructor has touched it, even though all questions are of the yes/no type.

Thanks again for your help.

You are welcome.

That's how it's supposed to work. All the questions that can be automatically marked are not considered as "unmarked".
