Hi Tim and other quiz gurus, how are you doing?
In Moodle 2.4.11 and the latest Moodle 2.7.x, I don't see a way (without touching the codes), to limit quiz settings to only allow "Open attempts are submitted automatically." Did I miss anything?
What happens is that sometimes teachers change the When time expires setting from default "Open attempts are submitted automatically" to "Attempts must be submitted before time expires, or they are not counted," thinking that this might be a better choice. However, in reality, if a student forgot to submit the quiz before the time expires, then neither the student, the teacher, or even the system admin will be able to submit the answers for that student. It looks like it will require admin to go into the database to modify the quiz attempt table in order to submit it for that student (please correct me if I'm wrong about this, on Moodle 2.4.x and 2.7.x). Because of this, we are considering to limit that quiz setting to only allow "Open attempts are submitted automatically" for the whole Moodle site. Any thoughts or comments about this? Would it be a good idea to add a site setting for admins to determine what "options" would be visible for teachers for the "When time expires" setting (maybe I could create a potential feature ticket in bug tracker)? Thanks!
