LMS Quizzes

The LMS Quizzes menu provides you with the tools to create a quiz, assign it to your students, and check their results. The menu is accessible by everyone in your subdomain. However, there are differences in terms of what each account can view:

  • Organization accounts, Administrators, and Tutors have access to all submenus in the Quizzes category. They can create, review, and complete quizzes assigned to them.
  • Students only have access to the Results menu, where they can see their quiz results and take quizzes assigned to them.
