> Dynamic Question

With the 5.x versions, I am assuming you can not have the LAN testing option to calculate new values for each test taker on dynamic questions? Can that option ever be programmed back in??

This feature is designed for study guides not actual testing. If you set up a LAN based test available for everyone you can include the feature to have dynamic questions recalculated. If you create an assignment in Test Manager and assign this test to a class the option to recalculate dynamic questions is not available.

We decided not to enable the recalculation option because doing so would make reliable reporting almost impossible. Imagine the Item Analysis report, for example, where you show the percent correct for each question. You could not accurately generate that report if each student received a different version of each question. The statistics would be meaningless. The same is true for many of the other reports too.

First, I just upgraded from version 4.0 to 6.1.3 in the past month. I love almost everything about this new version, however I take issue with your stance on recalculating dynamic questions.

If anything, I think you should be giving us (the teachers) the OPTION to recalculate dynamic questions, rather than disabling that capability. I really valued that option in my previous version. I want to know that students can perform calculations with whatever number they are given. If one students gets the number 6 and another students gets the number 7, I feel that what's important is that they both must manipulate their unique number to answer the question.

Since I'm the one who sets the range of possible values, I can decide if the resulting statistics have merit.

I agree with dcharlie55. My 7th graders take their tests in an over-crowded computer lab and can easily see their neighbor's monitor. I can't use this version of ExamView because there is no way to know if it is their work or their neighbor's. I hope I can still go back to the previous version. I recently bought the current version so that I can set up classes and have the test results pulled into each class. How can I get my money back? I purchased the downloadable version.

I also agree with dcharlie5. I really hate that I can't make my questions dynamic when delivering a test over a LAN. I don't agree that reports are totally invalid. The questions are the exact same questions except the numbers are different. You shoudn't have done this. Please, can you guys at fscreations put a fix together and make it available to us as a download so that we can patch this tremendously annoying problem? We are begging you.

I also agree with dcharlie5. As whether or not the reports are valid, we teachers should be the one that decide. And I would ditto jumpinjo's opionion here " The questions are the exact same questions except the numbers are different. You shoudn't have done this. Please, can you guys at fscreations put a fix together and make it available to us as a download so that we can patch this tremendously annoying problem? We are begging you."
We are begging you! Please do something.
