The Quiz extension was created by a volunteer and is currently installed on several WMF projects, such as Wikiversity. However, it is not under active development and there are a number of reported bugs as well as requested features.
There are a number of tasks that should be done to improve the extension:
- Import all the bugs reported on the wiki page to the phabricator board. Example.
- Re-check and triage all of the old bugs
- Fix any high priority bugs
- Implement new desired features, for example T148613
Install mediawiki locally. It is easiest (often) to use vagrant for this. Enable Quiz as a role.
You can test that the extension is working by adding a sample quiz to your test wiki in wikitext. The quiz syntax is well documented here.
You can find the quiz extension in the vagrant repository by navigating to mediawiki/extensions/Quiz. If you haven't already, you will need to set up git, gerrit, and git-review, and install a gerrit hook to begin submitting commits to the Quiz extension.
