Hi Seema,

I'm not sure if this will cover everything you want to do, but you can configure communication blocking if you go to the main menu, then to send and display messages.  You can also close the discussion and hide closed discussion in the problem parameters.

I think I fixed the textbox to MC problem.  I had the question type set to exam, and I changed it back to problem.

Sorry about that part of the email, a newbie mistake. =]

But I still don't know how to link a section of students to a slot and I don't know how to remove the bookmark, notes, evaluate, and communication links in the top right corner of the student's view.  Is that possible?

Thanks again.

I don't know what happened but I have MC solutions and I created a problem with a text input box.  The text box shows up in the question editor area, but as a MC question in the student view.

Help, a colleague is using the questions as a test tomorrow.

Also, I seem to be able to create a slot, but I don't know how to assign a section to it.

Just in case you need an example of one of the problems that is doing this here it is:

$drink    = &random(4,8,1);

  $sandwich = &random(7,10,1);

  $dessert = &random(2,7,1);
}while($drink==$dessert|| $sandwich==$drink);

$answer = $drink * $sandwich * $dessert;A restaurant offers $drink different soft drink flavours, $sandwich different sandwiches and $dessert different dessert selections.  In how many ways can a person select one item from each category (a drink, a sandwich, and a dessert)?
