Talk:Matching question type

From MoodleDocs

Been playing in Ah....I think we need some examples for the newbie like me.

Once I answered a matching question of my design as a student, dawn started to break over Marblehead, and I deleted my previous comments --chris collman 11:25, 19 September 2007 (CDT)

Hi Chris, thanks for all your comments, which often make me smile :-) --Helen Foster 03:19, 24 September 2007 (CDT)

For Moodle 1.9 (haven't tested in 2.1 yet): This page states that the instructor can choose whether or not answers in drop-down menus should be shuffled or not. Slightly later in the page it is definitively stated that answers will always be shuffled. Which is correct?

I believe the latter is true, since the "Shuffle" checkbox's inline help says "If you set this option to "Yes", then the order of the subquestions is randomly shuffled each time a student starts an attempt at a quiz containing this question - provided that "Shuffle within questions" in the Quiz settings is set to "Yes"." This has also been my experience - the 'Shuffle' checkbox shuffles the subquestions, but exerts no influence over the answer list, which is always randomly shuffled.

You are right. The shuffle option controls shuffling the sub-quetsions.--Tim Hunt 21:49, 21 October 2011 (WST)
