      Description

      If a teacher makes a mistake and selects the wrong behaviour for their quiz, and then the do not preview the quiz to test it before letting their students attempt it, then they are screwed.

      In many cases, it is impossible to do anything about this. For example, if a quiz was attempted in adaptive mode, it is not really going to work to try to switch it to deferred feedback mode.

      Still, in some cases, changing the behaviour in the database, and then regrading, might possibly work. (In other cases, it will just make the mess worse.)

      So, it would be possible to make a UI for doing this. Probably best implemented as a quiz report plugin.

      Actually, this is likely to be so unreliable that this should not be included in the standard Moodle distribution. It would be better as an optional add-on.
