Allowing late submissions

You can allow learners to complete an assessment after the deadline has passed. You can enable late submission feature that allows learners to make the submission after the actual deadline. To do this, refer to the following steps:

2. In the assessment settings, click Publishing Options.

3. Enable Late Submission to allow users to make submission after the deadline. Gracious you!  

4. Set the time limit for late submission. You can set the time limit by using three parameters: minutes, hours and days.

5. When learners take this Quiz, then he/she will be able to see how much time is allowed for late submission. This is illustrated as follows:

Setting a time limit

You can set a time limit for your quiz to make it a timed quiz. When learners starts taking the quiz, they must complete it within the specified time. To set a time limit to a quiz refer to the following steps:

1. In the assessment settings, click Submission.

2. Enable Time Limit to set a time limit.

3. Set the time limit as required. You can set the time limit by using two parameters: minutes and hours.

4.  When learners take this Quiz, then he/she will be able to see that the quiz is timed and the time they have to complete it. This is illustrated as follows:

Note 1: If a learner does not click on Submit for Evaluation and the time runs out, then his/her submission will be submitted automatically. Evaluation will be done on the basis of the submitted answer, if any, otherwise No answer will be considered as the submitted answer.

Note 2: If a learner is disconnected due to closing of browser window or loss of internet connection, then the quiz will be submitted automatically after the timer goes off (meanwhile, if learner navigates back to quiz attempting page then he/she can see the timer with the remaining time). In case the learner is in between questions, then his/her progress up to the previous question will be auto submitted after the timer goes off.

Shuffling order of questions

In case you have more than one question in your quiz, you can shuffle the order of questions so that each quiz taker gets questions in random order. This will prove useful in scenarios where quiz takers are in close vicinity. It will curb their temptation to copy from each other as it is unlikely that different learners will get questions in the same order.

1. Add an Online Quiz.

Note: For shuffling order of questions, you need to have at least two or more questions in the quiz.

2. In the assessment settings, click Power-ups.

3. Enable Shuffled to shuffle the order of questions.

Note: By default, the questions are arranged and shown in the "Given Order" to all the learners. Given Order is the order in which an instructor created the questions.

4. Now, when different learners will take this quiz, then they will get questions in random order.

Note: It is possible that two or more learners get the same order of questions.

Showing a subset of questions

In case you have more than one question in your quiz, then you can create the quiz in such a manner that a random subset of questions will be picked for each learner/group. You can also set the size for the subset of questions.

1. In the assessment settings, click Power-ups.

2. Set the number of questions for the subset. This will be the number of questions that will be picked from the total lot of quiz questions at random.

3. When learners will take the quiz, they will see only the subset of questions set by you (which will be picked at random from the total lot of questions).

Viewing scores immediately

1. In the assessment settings, click Submission.

Viewing scores immediately

2. Enable View scores immediately.

Note: Scores can be viewed immediately only in the case of auto-graded questions (open-ended questions are not auto-evaluated).

3. You can also set when the learner will be able to view the correct answers of the quiz. You can set it as any one of the following:

  • After max. attempts: Signifies that correct answers will be shown to the learner after he/she has exhausted all the attempts to take the quiz.
  • Once scores are published: Signifies that correct answers will be shown to the learner after his/her scores are published.
  • Never: Signifies that correct answers will never be shown to the learner.
