Stop making long and complex code in quizzes or make user able to set time. Read me sololearn mods and staff!

I have seen questions in quizzes that are just too long with double for cycle and such that are just to complicated to finish in those 15-20s Like if you agree. Or either the creater of the quiz should be able to set a time for the question in case of the questions that include a given code. Also the correct answer should be given at the end. Also the ratings of the quizzes before they are submitted are futile. Cant we pile up comments and like to dislike numbers after analysing the quiz set to be submitted to actual quizzes? Sorry that this is not a question but solo learm doesnt have forums.

Hmm... We are not the ones to create all quizzes. Users (like you) make them, perhaps you should ask them nicely to make easy quizzes :P . Quizzes with loops are probably not made to be solved by running the loop in your brain but by finding a clever trick to estimate the output. As for the times, I think they were slightly improved recently... I'll bring this into the suggestion section again...

I Am The One Yeah, I can only imagine the difficulty that you faced with If statements and cycles and other things because my knowlegde on that is limited. The time could be short, ok, but, what I’m intended to say is that is not impossible do this. I can naturally, without even noticed read your message and understand your thoughts and inttentions because I read and do math and other things since I was born, for the must of the humanity, programming languages are not a thing that you do since a childhood, It’s very recent. A computer could understand a thing like this in less time than 15s-20s, and there are some humans capable of doing this in even less time, and this extends for those who have a healthy mind, there are no limits for the imagination and the human mind. There are some examples of these persons in TED Talks and over the whole world, and even here, a person could answer the question that you can’t answer, about the code.

I understand your feeling, there is some simple and quite complex questions in the challenges, but that is the nature of knowlegde. A person who accept a challenge must be prepared for questions which the answer is not explicit, that’s natural. You declared that the time isn’t enough, my question is, enough for who? A believe a coder must analize a code and learn to look beyond It, there is a huge list of codes on the “{}”, where you NEED TO look to a code and predict what should be the output, this takes times for the majority, but have to be done, the perfecionists and the inattentive won’t get the answer in 15s-20s, those who use the imagination will. I hope this help, we all learn in so many different ways...analize your own process of learning. I agree with you, the feedback after a submitted code could be more enlightening, for personal experience. Bless up, all the divines lucky!

When I started doing challenges, many of them felt too hard to solve quickly, but as you become more fluent, it does get better. There are a few tricks, too, like not to read the problem linearly but from the point that's executed first - like the innermost set of brackets or a function call - so that you can calculate things more quickly and don't get lost in abstraction. But there are definitely some riddles that for my taste are too convoluted, given the time limit.

I Am The One, do you mean that quizzes are approved directly and other players, after actually playing them, judge each one? Self-adjusting your would be unfair; but there could be a letter-to-seconds ratio applied automatically. EDIT: Maybe we can discuss in a broader namespace. ;-) https://www.sololearn.com/discuss/1674001/?ref=app

@viniiciuslobo yes you can antecipate and kinda know whats gonna come out of the block of code by reading it. And then you have to analyse it. Which take time. Like it happened twice to me I had a double "for" cycle with not +1 increment of a variable, but 2. And then it had a "if" with "continue" and an exponent that was formed with the i and j variables of the 2 cycles. And a print of that exponent at the end of cycle, modulo something... like give me a brake... in 15-20s... And I disagree withr the imagination thing you said. Imagination is not related to calculations, logic and rationale. You arent going to guess the solution. Anyways thanks for the feedback and I appreciate it too. Have a nice day :)

HonFu No, like in 👉quiz factory👉 rate submissions, if you clicked dislike you should report and explain why its a bad question and people discuss it and such. Also there could be apropriate questions according to our exp level.

Valen.H. ~ Yeah totally understand and thats why they should be reviewed because people make mistakes. And things normally only have 1 solution so we shouldnt estimate the output. Thanks!
