Exam / Scored Questions & Reporting

1019 0 1
Posted   one year ago

I have my course set to play sequentially, and I have my exam questions listed within the LO that the questions relate to. When I preview or publish the course, the exam questions are not always presented in the order as they are listed within the course. 

 

For example:
- Module 1
  - LO 1.1
    - Test Question 1
    - Test Question 2
  - LO 1.2
    - Test Question 3
    - Test Question 4
    - Test Question 5
 
When I take the exam, sometimes the questions are displayed out of order:
 - Test Question 1
 - Test Question 2
 - Test Question 5
 - Test Question 3
 - Test Question 4
 
Is there a way to fix this so that the questions are always presented sequentially by LO and also within the LO? (ie. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, per the structure listed above)
 
Given the exam is presented to the user out of order, how is the data reported back to the LRS/LMS? Does the information available include the question and correct/incorrect answers?

There are two settings in different places that can help you with controlling the order as you describe.

In the Publishing Profile there is a setting in the Test Options section, Follow LO Order. By default, this setting is off, so the LO order will be shuffled as part of delivering test questions to the learner. You can edit your Publishing Profile (or create a new Profile) to turn this setting on.

The Publishing Profile is accessible from the Project Properties panel.

The second setting is for each LO. If you select the LO then select the three-dot menu to open its Properties panel, on the Settings tab there are several options for controlling the delivery of questions from the LO. The default setting is to deliver All Questions, with a checkbox preselected to shuffle the question order within the LO. If you de-select this checkbox the questions will not be shuffled, i.e., they will follow the order you have set in the Project Outline. (This panel also includes settings for randomization of the available questions for the LO, such as presenting one or two questions out of three, etc.)

This lesson outlines setting the LO question randomization, it's an older lesson so some interfaces are out of date but it will help you find these settings.

No matter what order the questions are presented in, though, the question data being sent to the LMS should always be contextually question-related rather than simply "delivery order" related. By this I mean that while learner one may get Q 1.1 first and learner two may get Q 2.2 first, the data going to the LMS is based on the questions themselves and not the presentation order.

Thank you so much! I had set the project properties section, but not the LO setting. Appreciate your help!
