Mediawiki 1.31.x status


This extension currently works for this version.

I may take on the development of this extension, so please add any known bugs or feature requests in the section Version 2.0 wishlist.

Version 2.0 Wishlist


A better feedback


Improving the feedback is important for many of the use cases on WikiEducator so I thought I would start a wishlist for version 2.0. Kruhly 12:35, 17 April 2007 (UTC)Reply

  1. "Correctness-conditional feedback": show feedback A if correct, show feedback B if not correct for each question.

  • Not possible to blank out the question itself (between { and |type=). Using a non-breaking space works, but otherwise you get a syntax error.
  • When the test is corrected, the correction button should change to "reset". On clicking the rest button, the quiz should return to its initial state so that the user can retry it.
  • The colour key still doesn't seem to appear when the the simple display is chosen and the correction button is pressed. (implemented)
  • The purple element of the colour key should probably display only if there is a syntax error. (implemented)
  • What's the status of case-sensitivity with textfield responses? (implemented)

Some of your ideas are good and simple enough to be included in 1.0. take a look at : my own wiki Lrbabe 00:45, 21 April 2007 (UTC) DEAD LINKReply
Thanks - I had a look. Definitely prettier :) McCormack 04:54, 21 April 2007 (UTC)Reply

A global feedback


I think it could be a good thing to have a global feedback concerning the score of a user at the end or at the begining of the corrected page. For example, user1 has 2/10, he cand be told something like "well, that's not so bad..." ; user2 has 10/10, "very good, the pupil might soon be better than the teacher...". An example here. And it might not be very difficult to do I suppose. --Henrique 19:15, 28 October 2007 (UTC) (sorry for my english)Reply

Question numbering


Another suggestion: it should be possible to suppress question numbering. Rather than adding an attribute to the quiz tag, I suggest that if there is only 1 question, it should not be numbered. McCormack 05:32, 21 April 2007 (UTC)Reply

A partial correction


Crochet.david of the french wikiversity suggest to have a partial correction with only the state of the question indicated and the possibility to try again.

I would like to suggest that the partial correction mentioned by Crochet.david have the option for a hint or feedback to be given as well as the state. -- Kruhly 23:40, 23 April 2007 (UTC)Reply

drastic cleaning : We should remove all features that have been added in pre1.0 and add suggestions that are hanging around in this page Lrbabe 21:33, 22 April 2007 (UTC)Reply

Saving the archieved point per user


I would like to see the possibility to save the archieved points per registrated user like in a highscore-table. That would make it possibel to use the extension for education and elearning projects.

I would like to add the charter about how the user answered. Just like this. [1]

An easier syntax


Can you make the syntax more easy to remember. Using completely arbitrary names for the different question types () [] {} etc. means that anyone who wants to use this extension seriously has to look up the meaning of the symbols every time. Like "text" instead of {}.

Collectors of quiz


It would be great if we can save each question in a separated page, and somehow call pages in specific categories in a quiz. 15:06, 19 April 2008 (UTC)Reply

Pair-matching, random order, SCORM, etc


Most quiz tools have a function for pair-matching. In Moodle this is achieved using the following XML code:

 <question type="match">
    <text>First term.</text>
    <text>Description of first term.</text>
    <text>Second term.</text>
        <text>Description of second term.</text>

Wikiversity and other mediawiki based course sites need this feature. And all the other features supported by Moodle and other similar learning management systems: http://docs.moodle.org/en/Moodle_XML

Why not use the Moodle XML syntax?

Also, the secret answers, the grading database, the ability to import and export the quizzes as SCORM objects, etc, would be nice to have in Wikiversity.

The easiest solution would perhaps be to integrate a Moodle server with the Wikiversity Mediawiki server. Mange01 22:37, 10 November 2008 (UTC)Reply

Interactive drag-and-drop quizzes, with click-able maps, timers, SCORM based grading, etc


There are several tools on the market for creating Flash based interactive quizzes. These are not as boring as traditional HTML based quizzes. For example, you may pair-match words or sort a list of words by means of drag-and-drop, you may click in an illustration, etc. Some of these quizzes can be saved as SCORM objects, that can be imported as a learning object into Moodle and other learning management systems. Thus the student response would affect the grading database.

Would something similar be possible in Wikiversity? Flash is commercial. Is that not allowed? Any other option for achieving drag-and-drop? Java? AJAX? Mange01 22:37, 10 November 2008 (UTC)Reply

Higher version Mediawiki support


wish Quiz 2.0 could support MediaWiki 1.35.0 - stable,(LTS),Thanks!



I created a page on terminology for making quizzes, as I noticed that we are using critical words differently! Comment requested. McCormack 08:47, 7 April 2007 (UTC)Reply

Coming soon - a mobile client for running wikiversity quizzes offline



I run the Occleve project over at http://occleve.berlios.de/wiki/. This is a quiz program for mobile phones which stores its quizzes (called tests) in XML in a wiki. I've only just found about the wikiversity quiz extension... so I'm now adding the ability to the J2ME client to download, store, and run offline wikiversity quizzes. It already does this for Occleve's XML format tests. The new release should be ready within the next few days.

The good news is that at the moment, the work I've done on Occleve and the work done here on the wikiversity quiz extension don't overlap much. I'd like to move the Occleve tests over to wikiversity, however at this time the quiz extension can't cope with the requirements of Occleve's language tests (which is basically an awareness of grammatical concepts). So I'd like to add an XML language question type to the quiz extension.

Anyway, for the meantime the J2ME client will be able to download EITHER from the occleve wiki, or from wikiversity. The tests will live quite happily alongside each other in the phone's recordstore. Release 0.9.3 will have this functionality, and it's coming soon! --Joe Gittings 13:25, 10 June 2007 (UTC)Reply

New version


As you might know, I'm starting to work on a new version of the Quiz extension.

This version aim's at beeing (mostly) compatible in input and output with the SQF format, partially compatible in input and mostly compatible in output with the IMS QTI format. Every people interested in quizzing is also invited to post comment about the SQF draft on its discussion page.

In fact I'll try to turn the current extension into an Object Oriented API and developp an new short extension that will use this API. At the beginning, this extension will only be deployed on my personnal Wiki.

zone de caractère


Lorsque l'on demande un champs textuel de 4 caractères( { 1998 _4} { 2002-2007 _4} ), la boite ne permet d'en afficher que 3 (la boite est trop court d'un caractère. cela se voit ici.

valeur de la reponse attendue provenant d'une page wiki



En fait je voudrais creer facilement des questionnaires sur le vocabulaire d'une langue etrangere comme ici v:fr:Utilisateur:Serpicozaure/animaux en indonesien par exemple , mais je souhaiterais limiter la saisie manuelle au maximum, donc comment faire pour que la valeur attendu comme reponse correcte sois, non plus saisie manuellement, mais provienne de la page du wiktionnaire correspondante par exemple :

<quiz> { traduction : completez a l'aide de la traduction correspondante | type="{}" } kuching : { chat (i) _10 } </quiz>

dans le code ci-dessus au lieu de saisir manuellement la valeur chat est-il possible a l'aide d'une certaine syntaxe d'aller 'chercher' cette valeur dans la page kuching du wiktionnaire sachant que celle-ci s'y trouve evidemment ( c'est la definition du mot ) ???

En esperant etre au moins compris :D, merci d'avance

PS: si en plus c'etait possible de generer les quizz directement a l'aide des listes se trouvant dans Thématiques en indonésien et/ou Lexiques en indonésien ce serait le Perou !!!!! Serpicozaure 10:05, 18 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

Option prise en compte des accents ou pas

Future of the extension


As you might have noticed, despite my will, the extension is not anymore in development because I always lack of time. But, as you should know, this extension is under GNU Public License, wich means that anybody can improve it. You only need knowledges in PHP, and a bit of html, javascript.

If you are interested in improving this extension, email me : public@lrbabe.com, I'll do my best to help you. I rarely visit this site, mailing me is your best chance to get in touch with me.

Getting quiz answers to display with formulae

Okey, step 1, simplify the problem:

{Test:} - 0 + 1

{Test:} - 0 + 1

{Test:} + 0 - 1

{Test:} + 1 - 0 + 1 - 0.0

Nice, the Software thinks that 0 is nothing and igonere that answer.

Internet Explorer bug


Not so serious, for there is no problem with Firefox :-)
When the mouse goes over the text area at http://www.totenoc.org/wiki/Taula_de_multiplicacion_(1) (that's only an example), it merely disapear and it makes it difficult to answer the questions :-) Any idea on how to fix the problem? --Kokoyaya 09:23, 11 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

Weighted Answers


A few of the quiz question types allow for the possibility of multiple correct answers, i was wondering about allowing those answers to be weighted for 'correctness'; perhaps in conjunction with coef? Maybe correct answer 1 is 100% of the correct answer points and correct answer 2 is 75% of the correct answer points and correct answer 3 is 50% of the correct answer points so you can end up with good, better and best answers?


"download snapshot" function failing

Possible to NOT give correct answers, but give total score instead?


Is it possible to offer 10-12 questions but at the end only show the TOTAL score - not showing the correct answers to any question? So that when the test is retaken every question/answer must be reconsidered.

Also it would be good if a "certificate" page could be produced with name/score for printing.

Many thanks, Jonathan3 10:47, 21 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

Possible to load total score into a Variable so that is is accessible?


Hi, I was just working with the Quiz instructions on Wikiversity and what I was wondering was could I factor out the score and use it as a parameter for further programming? All I need is a documented variable that holds the score for that particular quiz, and when I get a bit more used to Mediawiki programming, I should be able to do all sorts of stuff with it.--Graeme E.

Blank answers


I'm developing some college teaching materials for chemistry on a password-protected wiki (on our campus), and I plan to upload this to Wikiversity once I have it working well. (I'm currently using a few fair use images, so that means I can't put it on Wikiversity just yet.) The wiki uses a recent version of MediaWiki, and it has the Quiz extension enabled. However, I've run into some problems when implementing it in practice.

Yesterday I finished preparing a series of training quizzes at home, and these all appeared to being working nicely. But when I tested them at work, only one seemed to be working properly. If I reverted to an older version of the quiz, it appeared to start working. Then today I tried using this with a group of about 15 students (none of whom have accounts), and the quiz function failed to work for any of them. I was able to show it working for me on my laptop, but when I used a classroom PC (logged in on my account) at the podium the quiz failed. We're all using Firefox within XP, which I presume is a pretty standard system. What is going on?

All students can see the quiz, but when they/I submit the answers, it simply displays the questions again with blank boxes (i.e., it looks like you didn't enter any answers). If you submit answers in this way then try going back via the browser back button, your answers have been lost. I'm using the Gapfill quiz format, with a series of numerical inputs. These quizzes worked perfectly earlier, but now they are blanking even my efforts (even though I didn't even edit the quiz markup!). Meanwhile another quiz that uses a series of multiple choice questions is working reliably for me, but once again it gave EVERY one of my students a blank set of boxes.

Can you help me solve this? I should point out that I'm mainly a user, but if there are heavy technical issues involved I can pass these on to our technical support people. Thanks, Walkerma 04:55, 27 October 2009 (UTC)Reply

GIFT format and Quiz tables?


Please support bug 22475 to enable the GIFT format and extensions to enable self-study, low-stakes, learner-adaptive quizzes in the Mediawiki Quiz extension, in addition to Quiz table markup for Wikiversity. I hope we will be able to import from and export to both formats.

Good news!

A volunteer has come forward. I'm now trying to sponsor v:User:Mbrad who has generously volunteered to implement the GIFT format extensions to enable learner-adaptive, low-stakes, self-study quizzes for Wikiversity. He suggested he might need help from Google's Summer of Code program, so I asked about that. So please sponsor this project generously at http://talknicer.com for the volunteer effort to keep as much of the assessment content proposal open source as possible, including the eventual reading tutoring and pronunciation assessment extensions. I have asked the Foundation for matching contributions up to $25,000 for Mbrad's effort. Please also vote for bugzilla enhancement request 22475. If you have any questions please ask below and/or mailto:giftex@talknicer.com Thank you! 04:16, 26 February 2010 (UTC)Reply

Problem with wiki markup in answer textfields


I tried do develop a quiz on some functions of MediaWiki for beginners and I would like to include questions like "How do you write an external link to http://www.example.com in MediaWiki?" so that people would have to write [http://www.example.com] as an answer. It works in the questions and the feedback using the nowiki or syntaxhighlight tags but it doesnt seem to work in the answer text field to include wiki language. Is it possible to achieve this somehow? This would also be great for quizzes on programming languages and similar things which are done using special signs that are also used by MediaWiki and because it makes a difference if you type [Link] or [Link ] and people doing the quiz probably wouldn't realize small differences if the quiz would just be done with checkboxes. While a textfield could check, if they have written it correctly. --Ben2010 00:40, 6 April 2010 (UTC)Reply

Quiz-Script in wiki.zum.de with memory, crosswords and other games


Hi everyone,

I just wanted to inform you (probably you know it already) about a similar quiz extension I found in wiki.zum.de. You find it at http://wiki.zum.de/Hilfe:Quiz-Script_Framework . It includes many options that, as much as I know, don't exist yet in the wiki quiz from wikiversity. What do you think about adding these options to the existing quiz tool in wikiversity? --Javier Carro 16:05, 25 April 2010 (UTC)Reply

I really like the multiple choice format, but GIFT's is much better because it allows for feedback. I couldn't get the memorization exercise to work (I exposed both the picture and text for bee, but wasn't sure what to do next.) I'm glad people are working on things like that. 20:04, 16 May 2010 (UTC)Reply

Quiz and Cite problem???


I've had a user on our instance of MediaWiki (1.16) notice that the Cite extension Extension:Cite/Cite.php and this Quiz extension don't play together correctly. Perhaps it's something on our end, but the situation is thus:

If you put a <ref> and corresponding <references/> BEFORE the <quiz> the references will show up correctly.

If you put the <references/> AFTER the </quiz> then the references section will be blank. (Wiki text will show up fine, headers, stuff entered on the "edit" page, etc. The "<references/>" extension call is simply returning "nothing" [its output is empty])

If it's not the Quiz or Cite code, any idea what would be causing that?

In my Mediawiki 1.16.2 questions and answers are no longer rendered. The Apache error log file gives:

Application de l'extension Quiz sur la Wikipédia Francophone


Bonjour, je suis l'Uilisateur:JÄNNICK Jérémy sur la Wikipédia Francophone. Je prépare un futur Portail:Bassin minier du Nord-Pas-de-Calais qui se veut au meilleur niveau de la programmation, afin qu'à terme il devienne portail de qualité.

Hélas, le procédé utilisé sur le Portail:Quiz n'est pas intéressant, en ce sens que c'est beaucoup trop simpliste.

Printing issue


Hi, when I try to export a quiz into PDF format, on the Italian Wikibooks, the markup gets rendered on the document, instead of the quiz itself. example It seems that this extension and Extension:Collection do not mix well. Is there a way to solve this problem? --LoStrangolatore 16:10, 4 December 2011 (UTC)Reply

PDF export has different problems. I learned that it hangs up in many situations; therefore I don't use this feature anymore. I switched to Esercizi di matematica per le superiori/Limiti and started Scarica come PDF – it works very well. But the <quiz> tag can't be parsed by the PDF writer.
Nevertheless, printing has to be improved.
  • First, all buttons (especially Submit) must be excluded. The simpliest way could be class="noprint" – provided that this feature is globally available.
  • Moreover, questions and answers must be separated in a printed work (book or so). Some possible ways how to get this:
    • Add a parameter printonly. If so, only the correct answers are shown. An author can use the same quiz at two places: on the question site in the regular way, on the answer site using "printonly".
    • Add a parameter separated answers (or so). If so, the correct answers in the printer version (!) are shown additionally after the questions.
I would appreciate if a developer would make the quiz printable. -- Juetho 09:36, 25 January 2012 (UTC)Reply

"No Retry" Quizzing? Quiz Scores?


From what I've been able to research on this extension, it doesn't provide the capability of preventing users from correcting their answers and moving on to the next question.

Additionally, there doesn't seem to be a way to keep track of individual user's scores. Perhaps the scores could somehow be associated with their Wiki Login?

Me too


I'm looking for something like this for my place of work to run on our intranet. I'm in charge of the training program and am looking for a better way to get training and awareness materials plus quizzes to about ~1000 users. I would need the ability to:

  • See who has accessed the training materials, i.e., watched a video or followed a link to the video
  • See who has taken the quiz
  • See what their scores were
  • Set a pass/fail threshold
  • Have MediaWiki and/or an extension that works with Active Directory so users don't have to create an account or login--the software would just know who they were once they hit the Wiki's URL.
  • I'm open to using a fresh MediaWiki installation or a packaged deal that may cost a little money

Formatting change to the Quiz answers and explanations?


Two separate issues here: 1. Can we have a consistent way to distinguish the explanations from the answer/question text? For example, the Classical Mythology course in Wikiversity is setting a standard that the explanations be italic and green (or red for incorrect answers). Sample quiz with this format It would be great to have something set up by default in the extension rather than typing all that in.

2. Setting up that format, I noticed that it is not helpful for red/green colorblind users, the most common type of colorblindedness. Therefore the green explanations are also bold. However, the Quiz extension answers are all color coded red/green by default. The title attributes don't seem to be enough for colorblind people. Is there are easy fix for this? Or is this not that important?

Need ability to track answers and attendance

These are BIG wishes that I have fulfilled by writing software that converts a sub-class of Quiz Extensions into wikitext that can be printed. See Wikiversity:Quizbank

  1. Include page breaks so that questions and answers appear on the same page when printed.
  2. Be able to randomize question and answer order
  3. Allow for page numbers to start at a number other than 1 (to facilitate merging with commercial test banks)--Guy vandegrift (talk) 02:38, 1 July 2015 (UTC)Reply

Saving the result of a quiz


It would be great to save the result of a quiz as a wikipage. In my environment I currently simply store the html produced sinc my intranet-wiki support html pages directly. Storing as wiki markup would be helpful. --Seppl2013 (talk) 12:35, 15 December 2015 (UTC)Reply


When using images or animations the name of the file may contain a clue to the answer. If there is a way to avoid this by not linking to the source file, that would be good. Otherwise compilers need to know not to use descriptive names for the files. E.g. wikiversity animation of herring, asking what kind of fish they are.

Please add a compatibility with the mobile version


Hello, the mobile MediaWiki sites (like here) display the answers with the questions (and the submit button doesn't work). Would it be possible to plan this enhancement in the future? JackPotte (talk) 21:08, 5 December 2016 (UTC)Reply

Issue with some text answers


I was working on v:es:PowerShell/Introducción/Evaluación and when I added text boxes to submit "|" and "$_" as answers I find out that couldn't be possible, because "|" is the character which separate alternative answers, and "$_" returns syntax error and disables text box because I guess extension expects to handle it as a width specifier. How can I bypass these issues?

I'm going to take this opportunity to make also a suggestion already made somewhere: would be good if extension allows to save results of a test or exam, in a user's subpage or as a downloadable file. --Zerabat (talk) 15:52, 21 February 2018 (UTC)Reply

Correct answers jumping to another position


Has anyone got the same problem where correct answers jumping - in my case - to a randomly position anywhere on the right side? Im using a user-skin, so its not one of mediawikis default things and it might be the problem. Any chance to configure right answers stayin to its normal position? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:1205:34FB:7980:E817:DC7F:243A:292C (talkcontribs) 13:31, 19 April 2018 (UTC)Reply

I haven’t experienced this. Could you share some more details? If the wiki is publicly available on the web, the URL would be the best; otherwise MediaWiki version, extension version, the skin’s source code (if it’s not publicly available, there’s hardly any chance to find the problem), the relevant wikicode etc. If some standard skin like Vector or Monobook is installed on the wiki, you can switch temporarily to it and give it a try to find out if really the skin is the problem. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 15:38, 22 April 2018 (UTC)Reply
Thanks for getting back to me! Unfortunately the wiki isnt public yet. We use Version 1.30.0, Extension Version: 1.2.0 and 'Pivot' (https://github.com/Hutchy68/pivot/releases) 2.0.0. When i switch back to Monobook or Vector it works fine. Also tried with tables to 'force' correct answers staying in this area, but not even this worked. It looks something like this:

@Bumblehand: Sorry for the really late response, I almost forgot about it. :( The problem is that this extension marks correct answers with the right CSS class, and your skin uses the exact same class to identify elements that should be floated to the right side. I think this extension’s class should be renamed, so I filed a task here and started working on a fix. Hopefully it will land in master branch within a few days. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 23:19, 13 July 2018 (UTC)Reply

@Bumblehand: The fix is ready, and is available on MediaWiki.org and GitHub. It’s worth, however, to wait a few more days, as the extension’s text messages also changed, meaning that currently only the English version is available for the legend; this should be fixed within 48 hours. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 13:49, 23 July 2018 (UTC)Reply

@Tacsipacsi: Omg! This is awesome. Thank you very much for your work, helped me alot!


In the page Extension:Quiz, I am not able to see the external link with the title of link "Rules of Ultimate quiz". Actually, I have not yet installed this extension nor does mediawiki.Adithyak1997 (talk) 14:36, 7 January 2019 (UTC)Reply

@Adithyak1997: Thanks for reporting, I removed the link. I’ve found it archived in the Web Archive, but I don’t see what it adds to the page, so most probably it was just spam. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 18:54, 10 January 2019 (UTC)Reply

Mediawiki 1.27.5 - more than one quiz per page doesnt work correctly


i have a problem with mediawiki 1.27.5 and the quiz extension if i try to put more than one quiz with <quiz> and </quiz> on a page, every "solve" button solves ALL quizzes on the page, not only the special on where the button is located. can somebody help me?

TOC doesn't work in QUIZ-embed document.


Could it be fixed?

I read a comment about some problem between Extension:Quiz and Heading/TOC.

Do you have any solution of the problem? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 07:31, 2 July 2019 (UTC)Reply

This is a MediaWiki core bug, and doesn’t seem to be fixed in the near future. :( —Tacsipacsi (talk) 19:33, 19 August 2019 (UTC)Reply

Duplicate project?


Here is another project, Quiz game, being discussed. Are they duplicate projects? Should they be merged? RIT RAJARSHI (talk) 19:03, 5 April 2020 (UTC)Reply

@RIT RAJARSHI: This is an extension. Not project, not app, nothing else. Thus it’s not a duplicate project of anything, of course. By the way, they’re not even substitute extensions—the QuizGame extension a social thing with rankings and leaderboards, while the Quiz extension generates fully individual quizzes. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 01:41, 6 April 2020 (UTC)Reply

Lint errors: div-span-flip


There are div elements inside of span elements, which is not allowed. See "Handboek MediaWiki/Extensies" and "Chemisch rekenen/Dichtheid" on [https : //nl.wikibooks.org/wiki/Speciaal:LintErrors/misc-tidy-replacement-issues] (Dutch wikibooks).

<span class="questionText"><div class="thumb tleft"><div class="thumbinner"   etc.

Is there a way of making the quiz show feedback for an option regardless of whether you got it right or wrong? At the moment I'm using the following CSS which seems to be working.

.quiz .correction.unselected {
    display: revert;

iOS submit button


A student of motivation and emotion reported that "some of my awesome guinea pigs testing the quizzes on my page have discovered that if they're accessing the book chapter page from the latest iOS the submit button doesn't appear and they can't submit/check their answers! I've found no way to combat this, but if anyone figures it out let me know :)". I don't use iOS, so wondering if anyone else can verify?

Typed Response not working for Korean answers


Typed Response is working for English but not Korean answers. For instance, the quiz below works when the answer is in English.

조사와 형용사형 어미를 써 다음 문장을 완성하시오.
유튜브{ is }

But the same question is not working for a Korean answer.

조사와 형용사형 어미를 써 다음 문장을 완성하시오.
유튜브{ 는 }

When the quiz is submitted, the page is blank. There is no error. — Preceding unsigned comment added by KwonDosa (talkcontribs) 15:53‎, 5 December 2021 (UTC)Reply

I could not reprocuce blanking the whole page on my local install. However, I did notice that the correct answer was not shown in the dropdown, which I recorded in phab:T297070—maybe this is your issue as well, simply I misunderstood you? —Tacsipacsi (talk) 23:01, 5 December 2021 (UTC)Reply
