Q. I am using Box Menu in my course where I have multi-level menus. When I am on last page of a Menu/Module, box menu shows up the sub menu items before going to the actual content, is there a way to skip that page/view?

Are assessment question weights split on the basis of counting each question, regardless of the number of articles or is question weighting based on whether or not there are questions in each article regardless of the number of questions in each article - e.g. 4 multiple choices questions in article 1 and 3 in article 2 = 0.5 question weighting for each article. Hope this makes sense!

questionWeight is the scoreWhenCorrect
it's like a maxScore
There's a goodish explanation of it there
and one of the older discussions adaptlearning/adapt_framework#1974
we've recently introduced a newish scoring mechanism where it is possible to have item specific scores on mcq and gmcq

question weight doesn't behave as the name suggests
Jack Schofield
@jschof1
ahhh right. Thank you, that's helpful. Therefore, in my example if inside a module there were 4 multiple choices questions in article 1 and 3 in article 2 = 0.14285714285 question weighting
Cheers, Oliver

@oliverfoster
an assessment only works with questions in one article
at the moment
you can however use question banking that splits your article questions into groups
Jack Schofield
@jschof1
Okay, so I should only weight questions on the basis of how many are in each article?
Oliver Foster
@oliverfoster
i don't understand why you're changing the question weight from 1 to anything else?
each question in an assessment usually gets 1 point (the default value of question weight) if it's correct
that way we can sum all question weights and all correct question weights and get a percentage correctness
or you'd have say 5 questions and 5 points if you get them all right
1 point (question weight) per question

morning @cksachdev! not sure why i'm tagged...i'll generally butt in if i know the immediate answer

Q. I am using adapt-media component and I need to add a caption text below the video. I couldn't figure out a property for that, there is no attribution field in it. Kindly suggest.

Q. I am using Box Menu in my course where I have multi-level menus. When I am on last page of a Menu/Module, box menu shows up the sub menu items before going to the actual content, is there a way to skip that page/view?

one point is that these feel like questions unreleated to the authoring tool? may well get a better response in the framework chat

Oliver Foster
@oliverfoster
@cksachdev You need to make a pull request / issue to add attribution to media

@cksachdev
Thanks @tomgreenfield I will move these queries to adapt_framework channel.
@oliverfoster sure, will do so.

Is it possible to download an Adept course and run it as HTML in Chrome. I don't care that the tracking is not working.... Tried to open the Index.html but just get the loading circles... If it's possible could you describe the steps that I need to take to make it work?
Oliver Foster
@oliverfoster
No. Chrome won't let JavaScript load files from file:/// because otherwise it could read your entire hard drive.
You need to access the course via a webserver so that it is served via the http protocol.

Apparently Firefox used to allow you to. I don't know if it still does.

@oliverfoster Thanks for the answer Oliver :)

@MartinJuhler @oliverfoster Like Chrome it does not anymore, neither does Opera, we use Webserver for Chrome if we are on route and want to show the courses. Works like a charm and is on your "local pc"

I used to achieve this in Firefox by accessing about:config and setting security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy to false.
just verified this still works in Firefox 89 on Windows

Super, thx for the tip

I'm getting the warning:

You are using Node.js 16.4.1 which is not supported by Adapt

...yet this is the current LTS. Either this warning is wrong as the docs say to use the LTS, or 16.4.1 can't be used for whatever reason, in which case it seems the docs need to be updated to state the current LTS shouldn't be used.

my mistake, I thought 16 was the LTS but can now see it's still 14

@tomgreenfield
have removed the word 'current' as was slightly confusing
Sam Howell
@5am_gitlab
luckily I've had no issues using v16 so far :thumbsup:

Q. I installed Adapt_authoring tool a month ago on my MAC, I am not sure how to log in. Can anyone please help with some instructions?
Sam Howell
@5am_gitlab

assuming you installed everything correctly, navigate to the 'adapt_authoring' directory and run:

node server

you should see some green highlighted messages in the output and it will tell you what port the local server is listening on, by default 5000.
so then go to localhost:5000 in your browser and you should see the dashboard login page.

you'll also need to ensure mongod is running in the background (on GNU/Linux systems this would be sudo systemctl start mongod.service or sudo service mongod start. Probably different for Mac though it's Unix based
