Splitset question type

From MoodleDocs


This code is a contributed code.


The split set question type implements a quiz question based on list splitting activity.

You may define from 2 to 5 output sets where a list of items can be split in.

The activity consists in defining which output suits to each item, collecting a fraction of the maximum grade for each correct subanswer.

  • Typical use with 2 sets :
    • A multiple true/false question array.
    • A allowed/forbidden quiz with multiple actions proposal
  • Example use with three sets (adequate, inadequate, no impact):
