[LON-CAPA-users] problem status with out showing solution

Hi Ray and Stefan,
If I just open the set again, because the exam questions were set to
"Exam type" the questions are multiple choice. That means that the
students know the answer is one of the 4 remaining choices on the exam,
and they can just try each of them. They can do this even if I change
the exam to problem set style. So I'll have to either (i) give them only
a single try on the wrong problems in the make-up phase, or (ii) create
a second copy of the exam with whole new seeds for the problems.
The problem with both (i) and (ii) is that a problem that was left blank
on the exam (no bubble) has no tries while a wrongly answered problem
has used 1 try, so I can't just set maxtries=2 (and the due date in the
future), I'll have to do some extra manual work. If I could set
maxtries=0 (and the due date in the future) on the exam, I could solve
this by creating a copy of the exam (in problem set style), set "show
problem status" to No for the copy, and have the students submit a new
Stefan, I agree with everything in your last email.
The easiest thing for me may be to go in and manually edit the exam to
set all student tries on all the unanswered exam problems too 1, then
set maxtries=1 and the duedate in the future. Then create the second
folder for the re-make.
