Pagination not working with Sections in quiz

Options

I have two sections sequentially one after another in a BrightSpace quiz. The first one is visible to students. The second is not. Under "Timing & Display" - "Paging" I have set it to "Add page break after each section". There are no questions in the first section. It is just some descriptive text introducing the second half of the quiz…but I can't put the content into the next section because I am using the second section as a divider for different question types.

So…the problem appears to be that: when you have a "Section" containing no questions followed immediately by another "Section" that is not visible to students, the system does not insert a page break between the two.

    Hi Mike,

    I've reproduced the issue described and cannot find a workaround for you. In this instance best to open a case with the Support team to investigate. They can troubleshoot with you further and determine if the behaviour is a defect that needs to be addressed, or if the tool is working as intended. Hope that helps!

    The term "empty section" is ambiguous. To clarify, in this instance the term "empty" refers to a section that does not contain any question items as opposed to a section with no textual (or other) content in the "Section Text" box.

    We'll be watching this issue as well. We have curriculum developers with quizzes that cannot be used until the page break problem (1652695) is fixed.

    It has been almost a year since this page break issue was reported, and it's still not fixed. Now, my quizzes are no longer displaying the format correctly because of this issue (our Brightspace was updated, and the legacy pagination is no longer in use). This is serious. Please get it fixed as soon as possible. Thanks.
