Hello, folks.
I need some help with the development of my LOs. I created an activity with XERTE but in every single exercise there is a check answers button, and I don't want it.
Is there any way that I could remove this button of all questions and put it into the results page only?
How can I do this?

If you use v3.5, you can try to switch on the optional 'Tracking...' parameter of the main LO, and then tick 'Force tracking mode behaviour'

Thank you, Tom,
I tried your tip, but it didn't work. The check button is still there in every question. I want that the students could check their answer only in the score pages.

Good morning,

did you find any solution on this topic?

I try to create a test and students are not to know, whether their answer was correct or not until the end of the test, so I need to hide the check button.

Thank you!
Christian

Hi,

If you really want you can get rid of the Check button by CSS, but that would only solve part of the challange. You would also have to make clear that you cannot go back to the previous page. That can also be achieved by optional properties and/or custom css.

The fact remains, that Xerte is not really suitable for creating tests.

Hi
Just to clarify I think what Tom means is that Xerte is perhaps not the best tool for summative tests but should be fine for self-assessments and formative tests.

You have to be careful about exactly what page types/interactions you hide/remove the button because some may not work properly if you do this.
After a quick check you could use the following css for some of the page types e.g.:
.x_categories_page #pageContents #button{display:none}
.x_gapFill_page #pageContents #submitBtn{display:none}
.x_textMatch_page #pageContents #button{display:none}
.x_grid_page #pageContents #checkBtn{display:none}
.x_timeline_page #pageContents #button{display:none}
But you need to test this and anticipate all the things a learner might do and ensure things then still work as you wish.

For the multiple choice page add a script optional property to your multiple choice page and then add the following code:
//remove multiple choice button
$("#checkBtn").remove();
again anticipate all the things a learner might do and ensure things then still work as you wish.
