Interactive with explanation question behaviour
The code can be found at https://github.com/marcusgreen/moodle-qbehaviour_interactiveexplain
This Moodle question behaviour is based heavily on Tim Hunts deferred feedback with explanation question behaviour. https://moodle.org/plugins/qbehaviour_deferredfeedbackexplain
It requires that this plugin https://github.com/marcusgreen/moodle-local_qbconfig is also installed
This behaviour is like the interactive with multiple attempts behaviour, but with an additional text box where students can give a reason why they gave the answer they did. No attempt is made to automatically grade the explanation, nor is it required. However, it may be used in various ways, for example
The teacher may want to manually edit the grades where the student gave a wrong answer, to give partial credit if the student used the right method or approach. The student might want to explain their thinking, so that later, when the results and feedback are revealed, they are reminded of what they were thinking at the time, and so can reflect more deeply. Note: 3rd party question behaviours do not work with the mobile app and there is no API at the moment to allow for that.
This plugin has a requirement that a companion local plugin local_qbconfig is installed to configure strings and behaviour. This can be accessed at yourmoodle/admin/settings.php?section=local_qbconfig
