<font size=3D"2">I seem to be missing something simple. I did this when I
had a little demo account, but now I am on the eduCog Big Machine, it
doesn't seem to work.<br>
I want to set max=5Ftries to 1, so students only have one shot to answer th=
e question.<br>
As author, I publish the page (contains a sequence).<br>
As Course Coordinator, I import it into a directory. I tried setting
max=5Ftries through the Parm Helper process, also through the Overview
Table looking thing.<br>
Unfortunately, no one (Coordinator or student) is limited in their
number of tries. Should Coordinator be limited when I look at the
problem? I also logged in as a student, and the student was also not
Also, the student has no roles set, and their name does not appear in
the upper right of the screen. I thought their name appeared on the
demo system, with the label "student".<br>
I assume I am overlooking the obvious - help!<br>
