      The answers/choices section of several question types have been improved. The structure of the forms hasn’t changed so you should still be able to edit existing questions, see valid data in the relevant fields, save the form and answer the question.

      Test editing both existing and creating new questions of these types:

      • Multiple choice
      • Short answer
      • Numerical
      • Matching
      • Calculated
      • Calculated simple
      • Calculate multiple choice

      CSS has been added in most of the question types due to the way css works and the individual nature of many question types. Has been tested in the latest Firefox, Chrome and IE9.

    Description

      Question types generally have very long forms. Where answer and choice sections appear they take up a large part of a form. The idea is to diplay the field Answer 1/Answer/Grade/Accepted errors all on one line.

      In moodle this involves putting the fields into a group. The drag and drop question type (ddwtos) is an example. The choices are now grouped inside a group form element.

      Different question types have different standards which may prevent this solution on particular question types. For example in multiple choice we now have html editors in lieu of edit boxes. So the solution needs considering on a question by question basis.
