completed the 'scenario' question type on DEV server.
bug fix to quiz tool marking of drag and drop style questions - scores were being calculated in formal quiz types based on the number of options rather than the number of matches, resulting in a slightly lower mark. Fixed all quizzes and results using the 'remark' option in the quiz-question breakdown statistics tool. This tools also updated to use the HTML based quiz viewer, added links to allow viewing of individual student responses per question in the quiz viewer - shows the quiz question as answered by the student with the correct answer highlighted.
booking objects can now be 'open' or 'closed' to student level users. Open objects can be booked by anyone. Closed objects can have open day/time slots added by staff level users to allow closed object time slots to be booked by students. For example, a staff member could create a 'diary' as a closed object, and designate open slots within it that students could sign up to, such as tutorial or counsellor meetings. Students are reminded of any booking slots via the home page. Staff can email all the sign-ups via the tool. See the wiki help pages (more to come)
updated inc_showQuestionnaire to allow staff/tutors to mark 'quiz-mode' questionnaires even after 'results live' is set (allows marking of late submissions post release of marks)
