When creating folders and uploading files to UVACollab, folder and file names that contain special characters can affect site participants' ability to download or access the files correctly.
Issues can also arise from uploading files with very long names in excess of 250 characters, or from saving files inside many stacked folders so that the resulting file location is greater than 250 characters.
This article includes the following:
- Issues that arise from using special characters in file or folder names and recommendations for naming
- Issues that arise from having very long file and folder names
- Tips for making shorter file and folder names
Note: Some online journals post articles with their entire bibliographic entries in the file names; these names may contain special characters and be very long. If such a file is uploaded without editing its name, it can cause errors when uploading other files to the same folder.
Below are screen shots with examples of the email notifications you can receive from Tests & Quizzes. The notifications correspond to the ways in which an assessment can be submitted:
- Manual submission: You select Submit for Grading on the Assessment Submission Warning screen to confirm submitting an assessment.
- Timer submission: The timer expires on a timed assessment and automatically submits the assessment for you.
- Automatic submission: You can get an automatic submission if your instructor has enabled the Autosubmit feature for the assessment. You save content in the assessment, and exit the assessment before it is due. The saved assessment is automatically submitted at the latest submission date provided no other attempt has been submitted.
Taking tests can be stressful and taking online tests can be especially so, particularly when technical issues arise. The following guidelines will help you avoid the most common technical difficulties while taking online tests in UVACollab and ensure that your work is submitted successfully.
