    Hi all. As ever, thanks for a very useful plugin set. Would this report work on moodle 3.5 as well?

    Sorry, this does not work on 3.5. It uses some stuff that is only available in more recent Moodle versions.

    Hi all. Tim and Mahmoud, I'm very interested in this plugin, but can one of you please confirm whether there are more detail available regarding the attempts for each question than that shown in the screen capture that you have included above? The reason for asking that is I have a lecturer who has decided to use the Lesson activity for both his formative and summative assessments, but has bemoaned the fact that the option to download a detailed report of students' attempts is not available in that tool. Therefore, I was thinking of suggesting this as an alternative, if it provides that type of reporting.

    Hi Morris,
    There is a little more attempt than shown (the screenshot is from v1.0 release) - you can click on the 'Latest attempt' for some extra information.
    But for the next release (December), we should have added even more detail - basically the same detail as if you were looking at a student's attempt in Moodle Quiz.
    The entire feature set has seen improvements every quarter, so I really should try to redo (and add additional images) in the next week or so!

    is this plugin still alive? Last version and last commit in git is from july.

    I would be happy if this way of asking questions would be a real alternative.

    Yes, it is still activitely developed. It tends to get developed internally at the Open University, and then pushed to github when I get the time.

    Getting the time is currently blocked by the previously free automated testing setup we used ot use having stopped working for free https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=413252#p1669339. Pushing the latest version is on my todo list, but so is a lot more stuff.

    It says "This report works with the embed questions filter. It shows students and staff the progress they have made on all the embedded questions in a particular course or activity."
    How can a student view this report? They can only see their grades...

    Hi @Joseph Rézeau, in standard Moodle, it is a report that users can access via the Administration block (though I imagine many might hide this block from students). At the OU, we have some propriety content tech that we added the link to the report to, which is how students access it for our particular server configuration. I would assume that a Custom Block is how others might do it if the Administration block is hidden from students.

    Note that this progress report is more about 'participation' than 'grade'. It is primarily for GDPR purposes (user record review, export and deletion - student only sees their own, tutors should see their group only, higher-level faculty staff should see the whole cohort if there more than one tutor group).

    Thanks for your answer @Chris. Actually, just found how a student can access this via the Admin block. And yes, I realize this report is only about participation, not about grade.
