Grant Extensions in Moodle - Assessment and Quizzes

In a competency based assessment, a student is Not Yet Satisfactory until all the condition for a particular task are not satisfied. As a trainer you will need to apply the due dates for the activities so that the student complete their work in time and you can track/mark your group’s work and progress in timely manner. In any case a student fails to submit their work in time, you will need to grant extension to the student so that they can update their work or make another attempt. There are two types of activities that a student will need to complete based on the qualification they are doing. Those activities are Assignments and Quizzes. Below are the instructions on how to grant extension to a student for both quiz and assignment activity.
