Watu

Creates exams with unlimited number of questions and answers. Assigns grade after the exam or quiz is taken.

Changes in 2.3.8

  • The full details of the user answers are now recorded and can be seen via popup in the list of results page
  • Added uninstall script and changed the settings regarding deleting data. Now you have to double confirm deleting your exam. This is to avoid accidential data loss.

<

Changes in 2.3

  • Export quiz results as CSV file (semicolon delimited)
  • The exam shortcode is now easier to copy

  • Fixed bug with "Question X of Y total" showing even for single-page quizzes
  • Each exam / quiz has its own setting about how the answers will be shown
  • As many themes started showing the choices under radio buttons or checkboxes, added explicit CSS to keep them on the same line
