Altering Quiz Settings on a Pre-Built Quiz

This article will show you how to alter "Quiz Settings" for a pre-built quiz.

NOTE on Assignment Settings: If you check "Hide grade from student until due date has passed," under Assignment Settings your students will not have access to their grades until the due date passes. This can sometimes confuse students who expect to see their grades immediately after submitting their answers. WE RECOMMEND that if you choose this setting you ALERT your students so they know what to expect.

Step 1

To alter the settings for a quiz, first open the LaunchPad unit containing the quiz for which you wish to alter the settings, then click on the title of the quiz. In this example, we'll open chapter 3 and Chapter 3 Summative Quiz.

Step 2

You will see that there are “default” settings. These can be easily changed by the instructor.

Step 3

When the quiz opens, hover your mouse over the “Edit” menu at the top right and select “Settings” from the dropdown menu.
