      Description

      The Teacher GUI for the initial activity set up could be more intuitive.

      At the moment, it is not clear how the "Total Questions Graded", "Graded Question Types" and "Will Grade Minimum Number of Questions of Type" interact. This is explained in the help files, but it should be possible for a user (a teacher) to know what to do and expect just by looking at the choices in the set up interface.

      Ideally, what should happen is that after the teacher selects a number in the "Total Questions Graded" section, a message should appear telling them to either indicate what type of questions CAN be made in the "Graded Question Types" section, or to indicate exactly what type and number of questions MUST be made in the "Will Grade Minimum Number of Questions of Type" sections. The message should 'remind' teachers that if they opt to indicate exactly what type of questions and number are to be made, the total should equal the number chosen in the "Total Questions Graded" section. Furthermore, if they opt to indicate exactly what questions type will be graded and the number, this question type should be automatically selected in the the "Graded Question Types" section.

      However, I realize that this 'conditional' functionality may be difficult to achieve, so for the time being, the entire Grading section should be marked with a 'compulsory' symbol, and the "Will Grade Minimum Number of Questions of Type" sections should be marked as optional. Also, the words "Will Grade Minimum Number of Questions of Type" should be changed to "This question type and number of questions must be created".
