What is the Tests & Quizzes tool?

The Tests & Quizzes tool allows instructors and site administrators to create online assessments, including tests, quizzes, assignments with automatically-graded questions, and anonymous surveys, for delivery to students or other groups. 

The Tests & Quizzes tool offers many settings to control how assessments are delivered, such as dates and time limits, assessment layout, and feedback provided to students.

The student view of Tests & Quizzes includes two sections:

  1. Take an Assessment - Assessments currently available for you to take, their time limit (if they have a time limit) and their due date/time,
  2. Submitted Assessments - Assessments you have submitted, with scores and Feedback links if your instructor has made feedback available.

Note: Assessments which are past the due date but still available for late submissions will appear in the list with the Due Date/Time shown in red. Assessments which are not currently available do not show up in the Take an Assessment list at all.
