Activity module tests

This page lists Moodle 2.0 features in a format suitable for setting up test cases (see Jira as a Test Case Management Software).
Each item should state a task that can be done in Moodle. The task should be feature sized (ie not too small and not too large). Something that could be explained to a user in 3 to 10 steps. Most settings should be mentioned. For example:
GOOD: Users can post replies to forum posts, including embedded media and attached documents. BAD: Users can have discussions. BAD: Users can click a button named "Reply".
