Notify TEL before your Moodle Quiz

You MUST notify TEL about your quiz at least 7-days in advance. Quizzes place a particular strain on the Moodle server, so it is important that the team is made aware of your plans, in advance, so that we can liaise with our Moodle hosts and take appropriate steps to mitigate against unexpected service degradation or loss.

Please also familiarise yourself with the Moodle Service Level Agreement as this includes details of scheduled maintenance windows that may impact students attempting your quiz.
