Add Unit preview and adjust activity settings

The Moodle Unit preview allows current and future students to view details of major assessments, such as scheduled final assessments for Moodle units, if this has been enabled by the academic.

By default, your eAssessments Grade Sync activity will have a weighting of zero and a maximum grade of 100. The eAssessment Grade Sync activity should be adjusted to match the eExam in the eAssessment platform. You may be required to adjust the maximum grade, weighting and apply a hurdle, if your eExam is listed as a hurdle requirement in your Unit assessment summary.
