I think (I hope) I have had a flash of inspiration that might be easier to apply than the laborious task when many items in a “column” are affected, such as when one does a major update.
Initially on a new course I had created, I wondered if it would be quicker to start again and then delete the first course, as no one had found the course.
But then I thought of a similar solution that wasn’t so drastic.
I created a new column, cut each item from the affected column (now amended) and pasted it to the new column. Finally I had to delete the old column and adjust the testing to show the new column.
I appreciate that in a course of a 1000 entries this would not be desirable and another method would be necessary!
However I do still think a “RESET” dummy answer (ie REGENERATE dummy answers) would be the best thing for all creators and curators of abandoned courses.
