I'm using Moodle v3.5
When creating an assignment with online content, and setting a limit on the number of words that can be submitted, the student finds out if he passed this limit or not only when he/she tries to submit the assignment.
Yes, the teacher is supposed to tell the stuents about this number of words limit in the instructions of the assignment, and student should bw aware about it. But while writing an assignment, the user may forget about this limit.
Is there a way to activate a internal mechanism or an external plugin that would check the number of words while editing? If not an automatic mechanism, maybe a button that can be added and checks the current nuber of words in the assignment?
Thanks for the link. I hoped that this feature would be available in Moodle core somehow, but a plugin would do just fine
