Hi Michel

Good to know about this app.  Thanks very much.

Most of my course exams rely heavily on images, so I would have to deliver
them online.  Although, if push comes to shove, I could deliver the
questions through any other system (even through Google Drive or just the
LAN) and have the students complete the answers on paper, and then use this
app.  It does mean, though, that you cannot randomise the questions and/or
the answer/distractors, unless you build different iterations of the quiz
and allocate them out, but that would really be management headache.

Still, useful to bear in mind, thanks.

Regards

Ken

I had issue last year (spring 2018). Now, I do not rely on moodle for
final examination. Paper quizzes, with separate answer sheets, read
automatically by iphone app "ZipGrade".

Cheers,

Hi All

Did anyone else have or know of disruptions to Moodle Examinations over
this exam period?  (Usually in the form of "Bad Gateway" errors).  We had
two examinations affected (one pretty badly) and I'm trying to get a sense
of how many other people were affected.

Thanks

Regards

Ken
