  • Creation of the "Anonymous" user, when creating a quiz with saving results but without user identification (it was necessary because the API / results always requires user authentication: this is a breaking change compared to the previous version) .

  • Alternative PHP HTML generation to insert authentication control on page (or pages) of quiz questions.

  • In the final actions (Quiz menu> Properties> Final Actions), the "repeat" button is optional.
  • Simple answer questions: in the Quiz Properties & gt; Report & gt; Advanced: option to show the icon (correct or wrong) only for the selected answers, not for all.
  • Option to hide the evaluation (correct, wrong answer ..) in the final report page.

  • Security: Authentication to access the server API (in the previous version, the API / results did not require authentication).
  • Distinction between unanswered questions and unassessed questions: "Unanswered questions": any type of question that I do not answer, are still incorrect answers. "Unassessed questions": these are currently only "open" answers.
  • When creating the quiz in HTML, it is proposed to create it in the same path as the .XQZ question file, and it is no longer an absolute reference folder.
  • Simplification of the publication window of a new web application for saving results in Google Drive.
  • Confirm the end of the quiz with the appropriate button and not at the event of the last "OK" button pressed.

  • Possibility to insert on the first page and before the start of the quiz, for example, custom rules of engagement (free).

  • Added random order answers for print quiz print (or PDF).
  • Export quiz to database without name or title: you are explicitly asked to insert it before exporting.
  • Export new quiz: check if "name" quiz is not already used (as it must be unique on the database).
  • The number of lines and the maximum number of characters of the open response can be parameterized.
  • On the results page: you can change the pair of icons for right / wrong answers (currently: yellow smiley and red ban).
  • When you save the database questions, the quiz properties are also saved (for future use).
  • Review of the result: the teacher can assign a grade to the questions with open answers (one by one) and at the end, when there are no more questions to be evaluated, do the "review" of the result: a new grade is proposed to the quiz that takes manual assessment into account.
  • Export of quiz results in Excel format.
