[resolved] Very simple to cheat (4 posts)

    Hi

    First of all thanks for a great plugin.

    I am sorry to say, but it is however very simple to cheat on these tests. The only thing you need to do is to "View page source" side by side, while you are taking your exam/test and search for:

    "correct-answer-label" and voila, you have the correct answers all the way. How to fix this flaw?

    Another question I would like to ask is how I can include a specific user_meta_key in the overview of the test/exam (ie. in takings.php).

    I have users from different departments, such as science, music, sports, taking these tests. Their department is saved in a user_meta_key called department with their respective values. I want to be able to show this value (respective department for each user) beside their user-id.

    Hope to get some help :)

    This is only when you select "Show the answer of a question immediately after the user have selected an answer (Will not work in single page mode)."

    This mode is not for serious quizzes, it's for fun. If you want security use other display mode. We'll make this clearer with some text.

    "Another question I would like to ask is how I can include a specific user_meta_key in the overview of the test/exam (ie. in takings.php)."

    You can use shortcodes from other plugins in the final screen. If you want to show it in the table, you'll have to customize the code yourself.

    I would also say that it's rather obvious that this mode is not for exams - when you press the "Show Answer" button you will see which is the correct one and you can change it before you continue on the next question. So I have no idea why do you have to look at the source code and how is this "cheating". The "immediate answer" mode is for the user to study or have fun, not to examine.
