Updating a plugin: Making Question Practice work with Moodle 3.0

Updating a plugin to work with the latest version of Moodle is often relatively easy. The Question Practice plugin allows students to practice with questions from the question bank but it was only compatible with Moodle up to 2.5. Over Christmas 2015 I updated it to work with Moodle 2.7 to 3.0.


I will describe the steps I took to do this and how you might do it for any other plugin. I will talk about some typical issues, what you need to know, what are the basic tools and the essentials of testing.
