Major impact on site performance
By , for WP 4.5.2

While this plugin does what it says and worked for a client of mine's purposes, it adds several scripts and CSS files to every page of your site.

I saw a 16 point increase on Pagespeed scores when disabling the plugin.

My recommendation to the developer would be to simply check and see if the plugin is being used on a page before enqueuing the scripts & styles, and also if possible add the scripts to the footer (because your plugin alone will force any calls to jquery.js which are already in the footer to then move that up to the header, creating yet another blocking resource).

Poorly Formatted CSV Export
By , for WP 4.0

I just purchased the pro version and things are working well except that the csv export puts data into up to 3 different columns. And the data is inconsistent depending on the row, e.g. one row may have several columns worth of data in column B and the other row has those same data in column C. So I can't do a normal text-to-column operation to get a workable report. Need to know how to fix this.

Great quiz plugin but fails to handle large loads
By , for WP 3.4.2

Good plugin. Best I have seen so far. WPSQT comes close but the UI and the display are just awful!

The parts start unravelling on this plugin if you have large loads of users take the quizzes/tests. The database for me just could not handle it and now I cannot get access to any results at all - just a blank page.

Perhaps my server may be partly to blame, but i believe it is running the benchmark specs as it should. Sometimes have some permission issues (due to it being an educational server with heaps of restrictions).

And maybe, WordPress just isn't the right tool to run large quizzes, polls and surveys. Perhaps this is best left to a 3rd party website and not internally hosted. Certainly the lack of decent WP plugins for this area would support this argument.

Also when you do get results, you cannot customise what data you want to output into the CSV so you end up with way too much data that is a chore to process through.
