I think I know, but I'm not 100% sure and wanted to get confirmation.
On my Moodle site, I've created a Quiz. The Total marks for the Quiz is 20. But I've kept the Maximum grade as 100.
Someone take the exam and they get the adjust out of 100 score and gradebook correctly shows the correct grade type for the score received.
If I set up a reattempt restriction (Extra restrictions on attempts) to 70, students are still able to retake the exam.
Is this because GRADE here is still referring to the out of 20 marks NOT the adjusted maximum grade out of 100?
So for example, if student A takes the exam and get 70/100 (which would be 14/20), if I've got the extra restrictions on attempts set to 70 the student can retake the exam.
If this is correct, then I believe careless of the mark/maximum grade setup... if it the marks is out of 20, the restriction on reattempt would have to be 14.
I hope that makes sense.
