Even more suggestions:

*Result-based quizzes. Like which blah-blah are you/personality quizzes where each question's answers holds a specific value towards a result, and at the end of the quiz those values (for each possible result) are totaled to find the appropriate result.
*Double or triple point rewards for perfect quiz scores.
*For permissions, permissions for which groups can submit quizzes in each specific quiz category, not just who can see/test with them.

it's being developed again:
battye wrote:I am restarting development of the Ultimate Quiz MOD with Dugi! We are currently co-authoring v2.1.2 which will contain several new features. We will be continuing the v2.1.x line so that anyone currently using v2.1.0 or v2.1.1 will be able to easily upgrade.

Here is a message from Dugi outlining the plans for the new version:
Dugi wrote:I'm happy to announce that battye has decided to continue the development of the Ultimate Quiz MOD. The only new thing is that I'm helping battye with this MOD's development now.

This MOD continues the series of the previous versions, so the next version will be 2.1.2.

This topic shows how me and battye are progressing with the MOD and we will list all future features here.
  • Version 2.1.2
    1. Quiz timer (countdown) - Adds a countdown timer to a quiz. - battye - 0%
    2. UMIL installer - Dugi - 0%
    3. BBCode support for quizzes - Dugi - 0%
    4. User Interface fixes and additions (includes new icons) - Dugi - 0%
    5. Group permissions - When creating categories, select which groups should see quizzes from that category. - Dugi - 0%
    6. Group rewards - User will become part of group X if he answered X% of the questions correctly (this is category based) - battye - 0%
If anyone has any suggestions for a future release, please do post them so we can take them into consideration!

Thank you

We have a fairly structured plan for the 2.1.2 release, but beyond that we can definitely incorporate some of these requests. I know Dugi is quite keen to see vipaka's idea of permissions for which usergroups can submit quizzes included, while I quite like Jessica's idea of only being allowed to play one quiz at a time as it leaves the system less open to abuse (ie. users just clicking until they find an easy quiz that they can earn some forum cash or points on).

Also Jessica, the "fill in the blank" (or input answer questions as I call them) will definitely be included at some point, I personally rate that as the most important future feature. You can actually do True/False quizzes in the existing version by just typing in True and False as the multiple choices :)

on our board we have on the quiz mainpage over the categories a block with the 5 newest Quizzes from the users, maybe its also a good new feature for a new version.

I'm glad to hear you're planning to update this cool mod!
Here are my suggestions:
  • category description
  • quiz introduction text
  • bbCode option
  • question forms like true/false, input answer and multiple choice
  • users can/cannot play their own quizzes
  • time limits
  • quiz save and resume
  • "best results" stat
  • "most played" stat
  • "most correct answers" stat
  • "highest percentage of correct answers" stat
  • group permissions
  • specific icon in overall_header
  • users shouldn't be allowed to play a quiz more than once
  • chance to put the acp module inside the parent .mod module (I've tried that and the quiz module isn't showing at all)
  • button image for creating a new quiz
  • naming the quiz on the same page where you add questions
  • setting the correct question on the same page where you add them all
  • exact name of the author (as for now, all nicks get lowercased)
  • hell4ween wrote:In the table of statistics, it is necessary to record the id of question and answer, then when editing will not spoil the statistics.
  • correct answer in quiz_results shouldn't be explained (correct: you voted x, x was the correct answer / should just be: correct: you voted x).
  • when questions get sent to the database, in case they're longer than 255 chars a general error pops out; however a partial quiz gets sent, but it is missing the whole questions. I'd like the mod to say questions are too long without popping out a general error, and also without sending a partial quiz to the database
Cheers

It's a bit early to say right now. We've planned 4 major features for this release (time limits, group permissions, group rewards and bbCode support) plus a few minor things like UI tweaks and a UMIL installer. Time limits is finished, and this weekend I am starting work on group rewards (moving a user into a specified usergroup if they meet some quiz criteria).

Hello,
I am pretty new to phpbb and I am from India. I am looking for a quiz tool to my web site, www.ugcenglish.com .I am really interested to have this plugin working in my website. Looking forward to its finalization.

Loving regards,

I haven't had a chance this week to add anything new, but I did finish the group rewards feature last week. The admin can define the minimum percentage a user must get in each quiz in a given category, and once the user achieves that requirement they will be moved into a usergroup specified by the admin.

That leaves the following major things still to be done before release, of which the group permissions will probably be the most time consuming:

Group permissions
UMIL installer
bbCode support
UTF-8 investigation (as there have been reports UQM doesn't handle foreign characters correctly)

I also want to add a feature requested a few posts up by Darkonia, of the last few quizzes being shown on the quiz index.
