A user can only progress if the following two things are true:
- The essay is marked as “Graded,” and
- The user has enough quiz points to move on (configured in the quiz’s settings)
If no points are immediately awarded for the essay, this (temporarily) counts against the final score. If the total points obtained from the other quiz questions meets the passing threshold, the user can continue with the course. However, if they do not earn enough points to meet the passing threshold, they will not be able to continue.
