    Description

      Feedback from a very confused student. They are brand new to Moodle Quizzes and thought the button labelled "Continue the last attempt" meant they were locked out of their attempt (they were not).

      In our day-to-day familiarity, we would never have considered this. The event has pointed out something we would have never considered: "Continue your attempt" would be a shorter, clearer, and more accurate button text.
       
      "Your" = also gives a sense of ownership.
       
      This could also be far better for students taking iCMEs, who return to their PC after their session auto signs-out. It would then be clear to them when they returned to the Quiz (iCME) landing page, saving student anxiety/lost time/Helpdesk contacts.
       
      So it feels like improving this button message is one of those little-effort-big-improvement types of jobs.
