Using the Cloud Poodll recording question types in a quiz, can cause issues when students either:

  • Press "Next" or "Finish" on the quiz without first uploading their recording
  • The quiz timelimit is reached before the student has finished uploading their recording

Because the Poodll questions are independent of the quiz, they do not know how many questions are on the page, or if there is a time limit. We want to prevent students losing their submissions, but it is unsafe for the Poodll question to manipulate the quiz container. 

However a workaround is to use the Poodll "QuizSafe Save" feature. This will disable the "next" and "finish" buttons until Poodll detects a successful recording upload. This should ideally only be used when the recording question is the only question on the page ( in order to prevent students gettig confused).

You will find the "Safe Save" setting in the settings for each Cloud Poodll Question.
