Setting Quiz Restrictions and Special Access

You can set restrictions that make a quiz more secure by only allowing users who meet certain criteria to take it. You can also set access dates and time limits for some students that are different from those for the rest of the class; this can be helpful for accomodating special circumstances. For more general settings, see Setting Quiz Availability and Duration.

Other documents relating to quizzes can be found in the Quizzes section of the Desire2Learn Table of Contents.
