Moodle 3: Activities & Resources: HotPot Vulnerability

This article has not been updated recently and may contain dated material.

The HotPot Activity should be used for informal assessment only and not for evaluation (with grades) due to a weakness in the application that allows the quiz-taker to find the answers by viewing the page source.

This means that any student could find the answers within the quiz itself, making them insecure for a graded evaluation.

For more information on Hot Potatoes, and to download the program, visit the Hot Potatoes Home Page. For steps on adding a HotPot Activity, see Moodle 3: Activities & Resources: Add a HotPot Activity.
