Mark the Words- Score

I don't know if it works as intended, but  When I make a Mark the words activity, the score doesn't work like I'd want. If you have 4 questions, and answer 2 corrects and 2 incorrects, the score is 0, when i want a Score of 2 of 4. Also with the latest version i don't know how to put the options to see Correct answers, and Incorrect ones and Missed ones.


  1. Create a Mark the words activity
  2. Moodle 2.9 and
  3. Desktop
  4. Chrome
  5. 1.5

Hi KDChronos,

The scoring is by design so that users of the content won't keep clicking the words to get the correct answer.

I'm not really sure I follow your second question. The show solution option shows the user which are the correct answers and if an incorrect/correct answer is clicked it is marked so.


OK, well i think that we could have the option if we want to take one point, or just ignore it. and what i am talking, is that in a previous version we have the ability to use @Correct.. to show the user the Quantity of how many were right, and now, there is no place to put it

I think these are valid points KDChronos. I am moving this post to the Feature Request forum for better visibility.


I would also like to change the scoring: instead of getting a minus point for a wrong answer, I think the (language) learner should get 0 points for a wrong answer. Could this be changed? Would appreciate it a lot!

Hi Helmi,

This can definitely be changed. Since H5P is open source you or anyone in the community can make the changes. I have one issue though with a change such as this. If a 0 point is given for a wrong answer the learner can keep on clicking on the words until they find the answer.
