Quiz Settings Insight Needed

This is a fun one!

 

Background:

I had an instructor tell me that she set her quiz to "Show Correct answers at" a specific time, but that students were able to see their correct/incorrect answers before that time. This didn't sound right, so I tested it out.

 

First test:

I tested with one one attempt and the "Only after their last attempt" box unchecked. It worked. I noted that when the "Only after their last attempt" box is checked with one attempt, the "Show correct answers at" option is disabled. That makes sense. However, when you change the quiz to multiple attempts, it gets much more confusing.

 

Additional tests with multiple quiz attempts:

 

The first thing I noticed is that with multiple attempts, there are two "Only after their last attempt" boxes:

No combination of checking these boxes disables the "Show correct answers at" option, so one would assume that the "Show correct answers at" setting would work.

 

I did some tests on various combinations of the "Only after their last attempt" option checked/un-checked, and documented the results.

 

Both checked:

First quiz attempt: no answers at all, not even my responses

Second quiz attempt: responses and correct/incorrect answers, even though correct/incorrect answers shouldn't be released

 

First one unchecked, second one checked:

First quiz attempt: responses, but no correct answers

Second quiz attempt: responses and correct/incorrect answers, even though correct/incorrect answers shouldn't be released

 

First one checked, second one unchecked:

First quiz attempt: no answers at all, not even my responses

Second quiz attempt: responses, but no correct answers, note about when they will be released

 

Neither checked:

First quiz attempt: responses, but no correct answers

Second quiz attempt: responses, but no correct answers, note about when they will be released

 

Questions:

  1. Any idea why there would be two "Only After Their last Attempt" boxes? This makes absolutely no sense to me.
  2. Are you aware of any bugs related to these settings? I'd love to hear about them!
  3. If you have the patience to try, were you able to duplicate any of my results?
