Release notes - Aptil 1, 2019 update

The following release notes pertain to the Kaltura In Video Quiz items in the Kaltura player v2.75 & KMS v5.84.x & Kedit 2.28.x

What's New for VQ on the player & the Editor

  • Analytics table & Retake – We made some changes to the analytics page in both KMS and the LMS extensions (KAF). You will now see 3 new columns: Attempts, Final Score, and Actions.
    • Attempts - related to the Multiple Attempts features. See Multiple Attempts.
    • Final Score - displays the final grade for each user.
    • Actions - currently only one action is available. You now can remove a user’s attempt. This will remove the user’s attempt completely and allow the user to take the quiz again.

There is no need to enable any additional configuration for this feature.

  • Multiple attempts – This new feature is available in the Kaltura Editor. A quiz creator may select how many attempts a user have for the selected quiz, and what is the score type (highest, lowest, first, last, average).(1)

IMPORTANT NOTE: Currently, the Multiple Attempts feature is only available in KMS and will be added to the LMS extensions in later phases.

Enable the new Multiple Attempts capabilities from the Quiz module within the instance admin page.

  • New Question Type – Open Questions.

This great new type of question allows you to present the quiz taker with the option to add free text. After the quiz is submitted, the quiz owner can look at the written response and write notes.(2)

The Open Question type is not gradable. An Open Question is considered in the same way as a Reflection Point is, and does not affect the grade.

Enable the new Question type from the Quiz module within the instance admin page.

 

Coming Soon

Here is a sample of items to be released on our upcoming versions:

  • Multiple Attempts -  For KAF -  add support for Multiple Attempts features in all Kaltura’s LMS gradebook integrations..

Release notes - April 9, 2018 update

The following release notes pertains the Kaltura Video Quiz items in the Kaltura player v2.68 & KMS v5.71.x & Kedit 2.22.x

What's New for VQ on the player & the Editor

See below the new features (1) we have in this release

New Questions type – we have released 2 new Questions types:

  • True/False Question – only one correct answer, and a lot more room to write your question.
  • Rhetorical Question, AKA Reflection Point – is a question with no answer. This pause in the video will allow you to point out specific items in the video and encourage your viewer’s awareness. This is a non-graded question, and will not be a part of the quiz score

VQ char limit – we know that sometimes you want to write longer questions or longer answers, while limited in place inside the player, we did raise the limit to 140 char for the answers and 180 char for the questions in the Multiple Choice Q. Since you have more space in the new questions, the limit there is much higher (450char for T/F and 500char for RP).
No intro page option – in case you do rather just straight to the point, you can now choose not to have the welcome page for your quiz.
Toggle between questions – we added 2 new buttons to allow you to jump around between the questions, in the editor and in the player

Restriction of quiz creation – now you can select who is allowed to create quizzes from the KMS/KAF admin.

Links – you can now use Ctrl-K or CMD-K to add a link in the questions..

 

Make sure to read the Kaltura Video Quiz Administrator's Guide to make sure you enable it to the editors. Also – don’t forget to upgrade your players.

We have other small changes such as the save workflow and buttons, small adjustments to the words and texts. See below for a complete list.
