I'm looking for advice on if there's a better way to structure our question bank to work more efficiently with Moodle. We provide personalized courses to language students, so rather than one large standardised course that all students follow, each student has their own course to which activities are duplicated. To facilitate this, we're heavy users of the Sharing Cart block. To avoid duplicating the data of every quiz at the course level, our questions are stored under the system context for universal access.
However we've now come to a bit of a hurdle, as it seems when you backup a quiz in Moodle, it also backups up every single object in the included questions' context. Slow course/quiz load when one course has few thousands of quizzes. Hi all, Our Moodle (3.1.3 on PHP 5.6) is facing a slow loading situation.

The Moodle MC Offline quiz module adds paper-and-pencil multiple-choice quizzes to Moodle. In offline quizzes students mark answers to questions on a sheet of paper (the answer form).

Quiz: Each attempt builds on the last. Hi Lee, The big picture is that you are trying to make the quizzes work as a formative assessment/mastery learning activity - which is a good thing.

They could open the last attempt in one window, and then take the new attempt in another window, but that's just the way moodle handle's quiz attempts.
