The assignment template contains an option "Allow navigation without internet". Depending on whether this option is enabled or not, the behavior in the assessmentQ player differs for a participant.
Behaviour when this option is enabled
By default, the option Allow navigation without internet is enabled in the assignment template.
When this option is enabled, a participant does not notice internet interruptions. He can continue working in his session, answering questions, and navigating to the next question. His answers are stored locally and when the internet connection is restored, the answers are saved in assessmentQ.
The participant, however, will see a popup in the player saying he has lost his internet connection when he tries to finish his exam while his internet connection is still interrupted. It is important that the participant waits until the internet returns before he closes the browser, or else his answers will not be stored.
Note: Please notice that assignments containing media files may have trouble loading media in case of unstable or unreliable internet connections. assessmentQ provides an option allowing to preload media and other files when the assignment is started. This way the content of the assignment including media files will be fully loaded at the start. If you are interested in using this option, please contact Televic Education via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Behaviour when this option is disabled
In case of high-stakes exams, you can decide that the participant must be notified immediately when he tries to navigate to another question and he is not connected to the internet.
To enable this behaviour, the default setting Allow navigation without internet needs to be disabled in the assignment template.
When this setting is disabled, the participant will see a popup in the player as soon as he tries to navigate to another question while his internet connection is lost. He will not be able to navigate to another question without internet.
