Re: A new "quizz" extension, please try out the prototype
[In reply to]
Thanks for the reply. Here are some clarifications:
Q: You should put a page for the extension up at mediawiki.org and
link to the source code to download.
A: mediawiki.org already has a page for an old version of the
extension. I'll think to update it.
Q: Is it configurable, whether the page offers those choices or just
makes the user type in words from scratch?
A: You can hide the answer boxes for a paragraph by doing "ctrl" +
click on that paragraph.
Q: When I'm deciding what word to put in a blank I wish I could click
on a word button and thus choose it.
A: I'm working on this now. At the moment there are two ways of
entering the hidden links: type or drag-and-drop.
Q: You don't want your Talk pages to include artifacts of the quiz functionality
A: Indeed! I will try to find a way to detect if a page is an article.
In the meanwhile, toggle the button at the top (that says "quizz" or
"read") to disable the quizz.
Q: Have you gotten feedback on this prototype from any teachers yet?
A: No. I have only put the prototype online today. Feedback from
teachers would be great.
