I just took the same test twice about "A l'aéroport". The first time I you said I had 7 correct, 1 near-miss and 5 wrong. I do not believe any were wrong. I then took it again.
This time I went through the vocabulary provided by Lawless for L'aéroport. My marks for the second time were 9 correct, one near miss, one unanswered and two incorrect. Absurd! The apparent unanswered one I had answered and correctly. It was the first question. Why on earth your system ignored my correct answer I have no idea but it is very frustrating.
The two apparent wrong answers were not wrong. I used the vocabulary you provided. One said that my use of "bagages enregistré" was wrong and I should have used "bagages en soute"! I used "bagages en soute" in the first quiz and had it marked incorrect!
What on earth is going on?
How can anyone have any confidence in how you mark these quizzes?
I look forward to hearing from you.
Hi Mark, I can see what's happened here. In four of your answers you made minor spelling mistakes/typos and unfortunately, Kwizbot is currently rather too black and white when marking these. This is something we're aware of and we're building new marking algorithms that are much better able to handle cases like this in a more human-like, graceful manner.
One answer in the first kwiz was wrong, but the others I agree you deserve to have been marked as mostly correct. We can make the marking a little softer here for this specific test but it will be a while before the new marking algorithms can handle this in general.
Regarding the unanswered question, it's impossible for us to know what happened here. There are lots of ways this can happen but no data was recorded. Please keep an eye out and let us know if it happens again.
Best wishes and thanks for the feedback.
Hi Mark - I'm sorry to hear you had problems with the kwiz - that does sound frustrating. We're investigating and will get back to you once we know more. Thanks for your patience.
