Quiz Support for Students

Quizzes created by faculty can have a wide variety of questions types and configurations. For this reason it is important that you pay close attention to the specific instructions for each quiz. Failing to do so could negatively effect your score.

Question Formats

Most often quizzes will be configured with multiple choice and/or True/False questions that will be graded and displayed automatically after submitting.  Generally, quizzes are also linked to the course Gradebook to track and display your scores.

Multiple Choice

Your quiz may also include matching and short answer questions. If short answer questions are included, the scoring you see when you submit your quiz will not be your final score. In these cases the instructor will have to manually score the short answers before providing your final grade.

Short Answers/Matching

NOTE: Once you have submitted the quiz you can not access it again to edit it. Proofread your answers before submitting them!

Accessing your Quiz

You must be signed in to UAS Online to access your quiz. Once a quiz has been activated by your instructor it will appear in the Assignments section of the course homesite. Quizzes may also be configured to disappear automatically on at a specified time.

Accessing Quiz

Note that UAS Online will keep track of whether you have taken the quiz or not.

Possible Configurations for Quizzes

Number of Attempts
Most quizzes only allow you to access the quiz once. However, the instructor can change this setting to allow you to take a quiz multiple times. Quizzes that allow multiple attempts can bet set to record your final grade for the quiz two ways:

  1. The score from your first attempt will be recorded as your final grade.
  2. The score from each new attempt will replace your previous score.

Multiple Viewings
In some cases you may be allowed to view a quiz multiple times before taking it. In other classes you don't have this option. Make sure you know BEFORE you click on the quiz link!

Proctoring
For proctoring purposes, accessing a quiz may require a password. This password will be provided for you by the proctor when you take the quiz. Instructions - As you can see there are many different ways that a quiz can be configured. Make sure that you have read and understand all of the instructions before beginning the quiz. If you have questions, ask the instructor for clarification before taking the quiz.

Submitting Your Quiz
Always proofread your quiz answers before submitting them. Once submitted, you will not be able to change.

Time Limits
The instructor may set a time limit, such as 30 minutes, in which you are required to complete your quiz. You are responsible for tracking your time. The quiz will not stop after 30 minutes or notify you that your time limit is up, however, your time will be recorded and reported to the instructor. For this reason, instructors will know if you have gone over the set time limit and may adjust your grade accordingly.

Receiving Your Grade
After completing and submitting your quiz, your answers will be graded automatically and your grade will be displayed. The correct answers may or may not be displayed depending on the settings your instructor has chosen.

Answering Questions
When answering questions on a quiz remember that questions may be formatted to have multiple correct answers. For these questions you may have to select ALL of the correct choices in order for your answer to be considered correct. The score from each new attempt will replace your previous scores.
