Taking a quiz

  1. From the main Quiz List, select the name of the quiz you want to take.
  2. Read the instructions and details for the quiz, and when you're ready click Start Quiz!.

  3. Answer each question type by selecting an answer from a list of options or by filling in the appropriate input field(s).

    Note  We recommend you click the corresponding Save button after answering a question. You can also click Save All Responses if you are not finished answering all questions on a single page, or if you are working on a time-consuming question and need to save all previous responses.

  4. Click Next Page or Previous Page to navigate between pages.
  5. Click Go to Submit Quiz when you are ready to submit.

    Note  If you try to submit a quiz with unanswered questions, you will see a warning at the top of the Submit Quiz page informing you about unanswered questions. Click each link beneath the warning to return to each unanswered question.

  6. After you have attempted to answer all quiz questions click Submit Quiz.

Watching the time

If your quiz has a time-limit you may be prompted or forced to submit your quiz. If the quiz is set to auto-submit at the end of the designated time period, only saved questions are submitted. Make sure you save regularly near the end of the quiz period and try to finish and submit the quiz before the time expires.

Note  Although you can start a quiz and navigate away from it at any time during the attempt, the timer for the quiz does not pause and continues to record your Time Taken.

Looking over questions

It is a good idea to review your quiz, or difficult questions in the quiz, before you submit it. You can review questions using the Previous page icon or by clicking the question number in the Quiz Info widget. When you are done reviewing your answers, click Go to Submit Quiz.
