When you want to restrict access in terms of attempts, you can enable that function in the settings of your Quiz, Course, Assessment or Exam. This can be useful when you're using it for recruiting, for example.

For this setting to work, you need to ASK FOR EMAIL ADDRESS at the Participant data tab, otherwise the system will not be able to restrict the number of attempts. This applies to all formats. Here's how to set that up.
Exam

To find this setting go to Exams > Select Exam > Access:



To grant extra attempts to your participants please navigate to the Results section.



Here you will see the results of all participants. Click on the More Options button and select Add extra attempts. You will then see the following pop-up:



Select the number of extra attempts and hit the Save button. Be aware that these extra attempts work in a cumulative way. If you want to grant another attempt after the first one, you need to change the number of extra attempts to two. After that to three etc. etc.

Example:
Five attempts > Add extra attempts: 1 > Six attempts total
Five attempts > Add extra attempts: 3> Eight attempts total

Granting extra attempts only works if you ask for both name and EMAIL ADDRESS. If you have enabled a total time limit for all attempts, granting extra attempts does not reset this timer. Considering the example above, if the participant has exceeded the total time limit for all five attempts, the exam will not be accessible even if you add extra attempts. You will either need to increase this time limit or remove it completely, and only set a time limit per attempt, not for all attempts.
