Create exam / summary page

Dear all,

I’m trying to create a self-paced course in OpenEDX (tutor platform should that matter), which people in our organisation can do themselves at their own pace. So far, adding material such as texts and videos worked great. I’m a bit stuck at creating an exam. Basically, the course is a prerequisite for another more practical thing, therefore we want the people to not only look videos, but also proof they’ve understood it.

Based on problems I managed to get this somehow working. 5 problems, subsection mapped to grading scheme, that works fine. My questions now:

  • Each problem is shown on its own page. Is it possible to show them underneath each other?
  • I can only control that answers are shown on a per-problem base. I’d like to show answers, but only after all problems are answered
  • After all the problems are answered, I’d like to see some summary page like “congratulations, you achieved %d / 100 and passed. continue here” or instructions what to do in case the minimal percentage has not been met. How can I achieve this?

Thank you!
Regards
Daniel

Hi @Wasabi, welcome to this community :slight_smile:

Yes, you can. Under your component, click “Add New Component” to add a new problem (or content) right underneath it, within the same unit.

If you’re using multiple-choice questions, you can create multiple problems within a singe component, and grade them all at once. Simply add more problems within the same component “container” by copy-pasting or reusing the same syntax:

>>Question 1 <<

( ) an incorrect answer
(x) the correct answer
( ) an incorrect answer

>>Question 2 <<

( ) an incorrect answer
(x) the correct answer
( ) an incorrect answer

>>Question 3 <<

( ) an incorrect answer
(x) the correct answer
( ) an incorrect answer

You could create a unit in a separate subsection that has a prerequisite set to it (prerequisite would be to have a passing grade in the preceding subsection).
