I copy the request of one of our teachers...
I belong to the department of Chemistry of the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia (Spain), and we want to use the tool "Tests & Quizzes: Create and manage online assessments" in our courses. We are dealing with around 500 students first and second semester courses.
As you know, laboratory sessions are an important part of chemistry courses, and we thought to use Quizzes for our students to make sure they have the concepts needed to perform correctly these sessions. The idea would be to use this tool to asses the previous learning in the 6 sessions that would perform the (more or less) 20 lab groups in each semester. So a student would perform his test previous to his laboratory session.
This would be something similar to what the Department of Chemistry, University of California - Davis (UC Davis) is using, and I quote from their web resources "On Line Pre-laboratory Quizzes: Each 2 point pre-lab quiz must be completed at least 1 hour prior to attending the student's scheduled lab class."
This semester we have started to use these quizzes with a small group of 100 students (4 laboratory groups) but we have a problem, since students have laboratory sessions in different days/weeks, we would like to specify a different deadline for each laboratory group, this means that we would like to merge the following tools (see image, in pink): "Fecha límite" (deadline date) and "Examen publicado para grupos seleccionados" (published for selected groups). In this way we would be able to create only one quiz per laboratory session and indicate the deadline for each laboratory group; instead of creating one quiz for each laboratory group (this would mean at least 20 quizzes for each of the 6 laboratory sessions, i.e. around 120 quizzes in each semester!!).
Thank you for your interest,
