Understand that the student can be allowed more than one attempt to the quiz. Can we customise the message in email notification for those who still failed after 2nd attempt? I would like to customise it to "Please go to see teacher for consultation before trying again!". If it's possible, please share me the steps. Thanks.
Can anyone help out with my question? If it's not feasible, please suggest what should I do to achieve that.
There is one possible way but you will need to download the simple reminder block (https://github.com/nakaharatt/moodle-block_simple_reminder). You will also need to set up the completion settings for the quiz to require a passing grade. Then you set up the simple reminder block. It does require a date for when you would like the message sent.
I have set up the completion settings for the quiz to require a passing grade. But where can i look for simple reminder block?
The simple reminder block isn't standard in Moodle, so you will need to download it from the github link from the earlier post. You will need to have your Moodle administrator install it for you.
I have installed it but could not find the reminder settings to make changes as per your screenshot. How can I get there?
I'm not sure what theme you are using, but I use Boost. You will find the "Add a block" under the hamburger menu on the left. It is at the bottom of the column.
When you click on the "Add a block" it will bring up a window of a list of all the blocks available to you. Select "Simple Reminder".
After you select "Simple Reminder" you will see the window below. When you click on "Manage reminder" it will bring up the window in my previous post where you adjust the settings. Clicking on the "gear icon" will give you the settings for adjusting where the block will show on the page. Once you set up the reminder you can hide it so it won't show on the students' page, but it will still run.
You will need to decide when you want this to run because it will also go to students who haven't attempted the quiz yet. The students who have taken the quiz once and passed it won't get the reminder. You might want to look at the quiz results and see if most of the students have taken the quiz or reword the reminder to also include people who haven't attempted the quiz yet.
Thanks for your sharing. However, i couldn't find Simple Reminder in "Add a Block" window list. Please see screenshot below:
When going to plugin overview, i can confirm that the plugin is successfully installed and activated. Please see below:
From the Moodle docs.
Hiding a block
The hide/show column allows selected blocks to be hidden i.e. they do not appear in any course "Add a block" dropdown menu and cannot be used in any course. To hide a block, click the eye icon so that it changes to a closed eye.
To reduce the length of course "Add a block" dropdown menus, you should hide blocks which will not be used, such as mentees (unless you have added a mentor role) and network servers (unless you are using Moodle Networking).
You need to go to the Manage Block setting in the site administration.
It will probably be greyed out and the eye will be closed.
