fixing mistakes at end of correction process has no effect

Added by Marc Klausen over 5 years ago

Hello,

How could i correct own mistakes in the source file at the end of the correction process?

due to the documentation, 6.5.1: "hence, potential mistakes in the answers can be easily fixed after the exam" by using the update marking scale check box and then the mark button, but it doesn't work:

i'm using AMC 1.2.1 (svn:1403) under debian.

In one single choice question I made a mistake. The correct answer is 2, the wrong answer is -1/2 — but in the source file I wrote something like \wrongchoice{2} and \correctchoice{-1/2}. Changing the source file to \correctchoice{2} and \wrongchoice{-1/2} has no effect when marking (it once again) with "updating marking scale"-button checked: When a students answer is 2 and therefore correct, in the annotation paper it is still signed as wrong and -1/2 is signed as correct. Of course I annotated it once again, too. The same can be seen when using the button "look at marks" in the gui.

Is it a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks a lot for any hint or help,
yours Marc!

You must not chenge the order of the answers, but only change correctchoice into wrongchoice and vice versa. Therefore,

\wrongchoice{2}
\correctchoice{-1/2}

should be changed to
\correctchoice{2}
\wrongchoice{-1/2}

but not
\wrongchoice{-1/2}
\correctchoice{2}

Maybe this is your mistake.
If not, this is weird. Try to close, open AMC and test again. Try to create a new project with the exact same (although corrected) source file, with your scans.
