      Description

      I use the Lesson activity to create "adventure mazes" consisting almost only of branch pages and a few question pages. It so happens that it is possible for a student to walk through this kind of lesson without encountering any question page, only branch pages.
      In that case I have just found out that the student's attempt is not recorded in their Activity Report, where the lesson is marked as "no attempt"!

      The only workaround I have found is to place a Question page on page 1 or the last page, with a "dummy" MCQ question, e.g. do you want to continue YES / NO. But unfortunately, this gives the students a grade! I do not want those lessons to be graded at all. And anyway, I do not understand why lessons set as "practice lessons" still get a grade displayed and still appear in the gradebook. They shouldn't.

      What I want is for those lessons consisting of Branch pages and no Question pages to allow the students to make their way to the end, not get any grade displayed, but be marked as ATTEMPTED in their Activity Report.

      Many thanks in advance,

      Joseph

        Definitely something to consider in 2.0, because it will also relate to conditional activities. Maybe a page with a special property that trips the activity complete check box in the database? Don't know if that would be better than yet another setting, which basically says anyone entering the end of lesson, will have the activity complete checked no matter what..

        I made it for my installation little bit hackish (see patch)
        My teachers wanted only to know, if students finished the lesson and the first time they finished it.
        But maybe it could be useful for someone.

        Things look better in 2.1 onwards, so OK for closing issue.
