New PEST Version 2.92 released.

May 9, 2004.

Unfortunately, the list of features to be implemented very soon outweigh the list of features just added, but for those who have been waiting, at least you can take comfort that if your suggestion is listed as "upcoming shortly in version 2.93", your wait is almost over.

Veronica E. Al-Moghrabi sent us a great suggestion for a "No Feedback" global setting option and it's now available in version 2.92. While the default behavior of the PEST is to give immediate feedback as to whether a question was answered correctly or incorrectly, in a classroom setting, this instant feedback could give some unfair advantage, so by setting the <nofb> tag into the MVER: line at the beginning of a quiz script, you can now override the default behavior: PEST Version 2.92

Features upcoming shortly in version 2.93 include: Quiz Script Checker for the QSE, a feature in the QSE to automatically convert entire chapters of multiple choice into fill in the blank chapters (great for having two different levels with which to test your knowledge) and Help Pics for graphical explanation after the answer is submitted.
