The new "Activity Completion" methods in Moodle 3.11 can bring some interesting problems for Quizzes. As we know, some folks have complained that students must "Finish attempt," then "Submit all and Finish," and finally one more "Submit all and finish" for the quiz to be submitted.
But now we have another interesting twist, perhaps an issue.
The scenario is that I allow unlimited attempts to most of my quizzes. The only person who really knows that they are "done" is the student, so all that I allow in Activity Completion is "Students can manually mark the activity as completed." Of course, the quiz is done when the due date passes.
Look at this figure below, which is how Moodle 3.11 shows a new button for "Mark as Done." Notice that the student clicked on the box to let Moodle know that they are "Done." But if you look carefully, you will see that Moodle shows "Continue the last attempt."
What happened here is that the student did not complete all the steps to submit their quiz, but they did click on "Mark as Done," probably think that if they say they are done, the quiz is submitted!
In Moodle 3.10, these "Mark as Done" buttons were not present, so students didn't see this "Mark as Done" button within the quiz. The checkboxes for activity completion were at the course level, not within an activity.
So we have another interesting problem, meaning more confusion, for Quizzes using Mark as Done. Students might want to click on the "Mark as Done" button instead of the lengthier quiz submittal process. (How's this for confusion, Tim?)
I am not sure how to suggest solving this problem. It becomes part of my MDL-71856 feature request to go back to the older checkbox approach. I never had this problem prior to Moodle 3.11. Your thoughts?
