      Description

      Could we add a column to the question list table to show the original author of a question?? This would be helpful for the question creation module. Would also add a item to the 'sortby' drop down to allow sorting by author.

          Given that students or others than the course teacher could be allowed to create questions with the new category code, the author should be displayed if necessary by adding an additional button like the one for displaying the question text and effectively sorting by author can be usefull.

          Why are we doing sort-by as a dropdown. It would be better to do it by clicking the column headings, like everywhere else in Moodle - if you are getting your hands dirty here. I know it has been like that forever.

          The issue is, of course, space. Basically, this would halve the space available for the question name. Probably that is OK. Most questions seem to have quite short names.

          Finally, on the question bank screen. Why is it displayed in such a narrow column in the middle of the screen. It is actually wider on the quiz editing page!

          So basically, yes, go for it.

          Decided I don't really need this right now for the question creation module.
