*FAQs About Quiz*

  • Why can't my students see their Quiz score?

    The visibility of the Quiz score in the gradebook depends on what you have set in the Review Options section of the Quiz settings. If your quiz has a close date, go to the Review Options section and under "After the quiz is closed" check the box for Points. Save. The score should then be visible in the gradebook. Keep in mind this only applies if the quiz is closed for everyone, if there is a User Override that is still open then "After the quiz is closed" will not take effect until that override closes and the grade will remain hidden until then.

    If the quiz does not have a close date, go to the Review Options section and under "Later, while the quiz is still open" check the box for Points. Save. The score should then be visible in the gradebook.

    Also, make sure the Quiz is visible on the course homepage. If you hide a Quiz on your course homepage, the column will also be hidden in the gradebook for students.

  • I need to give a student extra time, extra attempts, or set a different start/end time for a Quiz. How do I do this?

    Yes, you can give individual students a different open date, close date, timing, and/or number of attempts. Please see the help guide "Change quiz timing for 1 or more students" for steps on how to do so.
  • My student(s) say their Respondus LockDown Browser is not working. How can I help them?

    First, make sure Respondus LockDown Browser is correctly enabled for the quiz. Go to the Course Dashboard and under the Respondus LockDown Browser block click Dashboard. Look for the specific quiz in the list and make sure it says Required under LockDown Browser (and Monitor, if desired). If it says Error, this could be causing problems for students. If so, click Fix it. Then, have the student try again.

    If it says Required, the problem is likely with the student's setup. Direct them to this help guide on Respondus LockDown Browser and Monitor for students for troubleshooting steps.

  • Can I change the point value of a Quiz after students have taken it?

    Yes, you can. While viewing the quiz, click the gear icon in the upper right to open the Quiz Administration block. Click on Edit Quiz. In the upper right, set the new Maximum Grade in the upper right. Click Save. The scores should be automatically adjusted.
