Quiz - Essay question support for versions prior to 3.10

The latest version of this plugin provides support for essay questions within the quiz activity, however Moodle versions prior to 3.10 don't provide a way for you to view the score/report. To allow the report to be viewed in older releases you must add a patch to the core Moodle code-base. More information on this is in the Moodle Tracker: MDL-32226 For a direct link to the patch required see: https://github.com/moodle/moodle/commit/dfe73fadfcf0bae603aa58707e48182a221eea5a

If you are unfamiliar with using a git patch, you may need to wait unti Moodle includes this in the core release.
