Author Topic: Use of Tagged Questions

Use of Tagged Questions

Note you must answer and commit to record a tag. Hence every tagged question is stored as either missed or correct. If you have, for example, marked with Tag 1, the difficult questions you wish to study later, then to view this set of questions, from the setup window, select Missed, Correct, and Tag 1. You will then see only tag 1 questions.

To never see the "easy ones" again, tag them with Tag 2 before committing, and then leave tag 2 box unselected for all further work.

Note you can only filter out the full database this way in steps of 50 questions at a time, although all are marked permanently once you save your results. Be sure to save your work with a unique name before quitting, and then reopen that file to continue on the next time you open the program.

Extra question in each tagged group
Yes. There is a minor bug in the routine in that the first question showing in the list that you are tagging always shows up in the tagged list, even if not tagged. In other words, after you tag several questions, and then ask the Examiner to display correct+wrong+tag1, for example, then you will get one extra question, which was the first one in the list you were originally working from.

We are aware of this and will try to resolve it as soon as possible.

I removed 5 questions from a 20-question test using Tag-1, but I still have 20 questions left when I ask not to show tag-1.
That comes about this way. Let's say you want questions only on barge lights, so you do a first filter on the word "barge." From the Rules database that will select let's say 42 questions. Then you ask for a test of 20 questions. Then you tag-1 those you never want to see again. Say you tagged 5, leaving 15 that were not tagged. Then you use setup and uncheck tag-1 so they do not show, but you still get a test of 20 questions.

The ones you tagged will not be in the new list list, but you will still have 20 questions. The reason is you still have marked that you want a 20-question practice test, so the Examiner has gone back into that subset of 42 questions and pulled out 5 to fill in the rest.

Had you asked for a test of 50 questions, then you would only see the 42 in the first pass, and on the second pass you would only see 42-5 = 37 questions..... if it were not for the bug we have that always adds one question to the set. See tech note in this section on that subject.

A step-by-step procedure is also presented in the section on Engineering Examiner since it uses the same Examiner Module.
