Timed and untimed quizzes

A timed quiz is designed to be completed in a specific number of minutes. You will be notified of the time limit when you first view the quiz homepage.

The timer begins when you first click "Take Quiz" and continues even if you cancel out. Cancelling out of the quiz may jeopardize your timely submission. If you take longer than the time limit, you will still be able to submit your responses. In this case, the quiz administrator will be notified that you took longer than the allotted time for the quiz.

Single-Take Quizzes

If you cancel or close the quiz, your in-progress responses will be lost, and time continues to tick away. You will be able to re-enter and submit the in-progress quiz after the timer expires.

Multiple-Take Quizzes

If you cancel, close the window, or otherwise exceed the time limit without submitting your response, your in-progress responses will be lost, and your time continues to tick away. You can re-enter and submit the quiz later, but the total time recorded for the quiz will be the amount of time that has passed since you first clicked 'Take Quiz.'

Before taking a timed quiz, you will receive a message indicating the time you have to complete the quiz.

student's time limit

If you have exceeded a quiz's time limit, please contact the quiz administrator (usually your instructor or TA) directly to ask for a retake. The administrator may allow you to retake the quiz by deleting the record of the initial attempt from the quiz's results.

Password protected quizzes

If you want to take a quiz that has been assigned to you, and it requires a password, you will need to contact the quiz administrator directly if you do not know the password.

View quiz results

If the quiz administrator has chosen to allow you to view the results of a quiz, you will be able to see them immediately upon taking the quiz.

If the quiz administrator did not choose to allow you to view the results immediately, you will not be able to view the results until they have been released at a later time according to the quiz administrator's discretion.

Viewing quiz results:

  1. Access Quiz.
  2. Verify that you are within the "Quizzes to Take" tab.
