Any volunteers for writing a help text here that could later become part of the standard Moodle documentation and be made accessible to students via a question mark icon on their attempt page?
[Rough copy, needs polishing.] The "Save Without Submitting" button does not save the quiz answers so that the quiz can be opened and continued at a later date. The "Save Without Submitting" button saves answers already entered from accidental deletiong because of browser, computer, power, or network failure during the current session. See http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=39440 and http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=28084
This section needs serious editing.
This will show you the quiz the way the student will see it. The only difference is that you will see a little link below each question number that you can click to be taken directly to the question editing page for that question. This makes it convenient for you to correct mistakes in questions straight from the preview page.
The quiz preview enables you to try the quiz. In a preview it will say 'Preview check'. Attempting a quiz, it will say which attempt at the test it is. Also, all the questions will have a mark index, i.e. the number of points gained per the number of points that could be gained for doing a given question. You will find it under the question number. Also, each question is given a Submit button.
The quiz questions being answered, you will find three options to go for:
- Save without submitting - which, as its name says, saves the answers without submitting them
- Submit page (optional) - which submits only a given quiz page
- Submit all and finish - which saves the whole quiz
