Note: To complete the procedures in this document, you must be assigned a role having the necessary permissions. To determine your role, follow the directions in Participant roles. For a basic understanding of roles and permissions, see Permissions and roles: Overview.

To reach the Settings page for an assessment, from the menubar of the appropriate worksite, click Tests & Quizzes. On the Assessments page, click Settings beneath the title of the assessment. Click the black arrow for a type of setting to see the options.

Note: Altering the settings for one assessment does not impact the settings of other assessments you created. Altering the options in the settings for an assessment does not impact any other options.

The settings available depend on whether or not your assessment is published. They also depend on what assessment type you have created for use with an assessment. The default assessment type does not include all possible settings. Once an assessment is published, you may only edit the three Delivery Dates settings, and the Gradebook Options (under "Grading") setting.

If you wish to include more settings than you see available for an unpublished assessment, you will need to create and edit a new assessment type. To do this, see Adding/creating, editing, or deleting an Assessment Type.

Assessment Settings

Note: You should not use the feedback option in Tests & Quizzes when assessing learning, as it may provide information students can use to correct their answers before submitting a test.

The following is a list of all possible settings.

Additionally, you have the option to collect metadata for questions.

To save the settings for an assessment, click Save Settings at the bottom of the page. Click Cancel to cancel any unsaved changes.

Note: An assessment must contain at least one question in order to be published.
