The example doesn't work.

The question about Paris does not parse! --Howard Miller 05:50, 17 September 2008 (CDT)

I entered the example in HTML mode and made sure to remove all line breaks. The question did parse but the half wrong answer "Marseille" was regarded as 100% wrong and didn't show the provided feedback. --Frank Ralf 16:38, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
There was a slight mistake in the syntax. The equal sign (=) doesn't seem to work, so I put "%100%" in instead. The following code will work:


The capital of France is {1:SHORTANSWER:%100%Paris#Congratulations!
~%50%Marseille#No, that is the second largest city in France (after
Paris).~*#Wrong answer. The capital of France is Paris, of course.}.

Amended the docs accordingly. --Frank Ralf 13:23, 22 September 2009 (UTC)
I posted another example with more than one correct answer in the German Moodle Docs. --Frank Ralf 11:02, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Embedded questions and cloze tests are not the same

In fact, cloze tests are the opposite of embedded questions. The answer in a cloze test is conspicously missing, not embedded in the text. (The preceding unsigned comment was added by Paul Perspectoff (talkcontribs) .)

What does MW mean?

From the doc:

  1. short answers (SHORTANSWER or SA or MW), case is unimportant,
  2. short answers (SHORTANSWER_C or SAC or MWC), case must match, ...

I can understand that SA is the abbreviation for SHORTANSWER and SAC for SHORTANSWER_C, but what on earth does MW stand for?
