Now you can allow your students to attempt the Moodle quizzes offline on their mobile app by using the “Offline attempts access rule” plugin. The new plugin developed by Juan Leyva, the maintainer of the official mobile app, allows the students to download the quiz for attempting it afterwards.
The plugin works for all Moodle versions since Moodle 2.6 onwards. The plugin is dependent upon the “Moodle Mobile additional features” plugin to be installed on your Moodle site and having the Mobile services enabled. However, the quiz can be attempted offline only if:
- There is no time limit set
- The question behaviour is deferred feedback (with or without CBM) only
- There is no network address requirement
There are some potential privacy issues related to usage of this plugin which are clearly mentioned in the plugin description as:
“This plugin download the quiz question description and possible answers. The teacher must enable a quiz to be attempted offline.”
