You can access this by clicking on the student's name from the list on the left hand side of the class allocation screen.

It is not possible to edit the number of attempts.

You can delete tasks in the Allocation screen to keep your list under control. The results for these tasks will still be available in the Results screen. Deselect Only show allocated work on the left hand side to see them.
