This article will show you how to alter quiz settings for a pre-built quiz.

Open quiz

Click on the LaunchPad unit containing the quiz to expand it, then click on the title of the quiz. In this example, we'll expand chapter 3 and open Chapter 3 Summative Quiz.


View policies

You will see that there are default quiz settings listed under Policies. These can be easily changed by the instructor.

Default settings listed under Policies

Edit > Settings

When the quiz opens, hover your mouse over the Edit menu at the top right and select Settings from the dropdown menu. Depending on your LaunchPad, you may have to click the Edit button, then click on the Settings tab.


Adjust settings

"Number of Attempts" and "Scored Attempt"

To change the number of attempts or select the scored attempt (i.e. the quiz that will count), use the drop-down menus.


"Time Limit" and "Question Delivery"

You can set a time limit or alter the way that questions are displayed to students by making changes to the Time Limit and Question Delivery fields.


"Save and Continue" and "Scrambling"

You can choose whether to allow your students to save and continue the quiz. You can also choose whether to randomize the order of questions and/or answer choices.



You can choose whether to let your students view hints by making changes to the Hints field.



You can decide how and when students receive quiz feedback.


Communication and "Visibility"

You can choose whether students are allowed to e-mail you regarding quiz results. 

In the Visibility section, you can choose whether to hide your quiz from students. The option to hide from students until date allows you to select a date on which you would like your students to be able to view the assignment.



After making any changes to the settings of a quiz, be sure to click the Save button at the bottom (you should see a green check mark indicating that your settings have been saved).


Done Editing

After you’ve saved your settings for the quiz, click the Done Editing button to go back to your quiz.
