Release an Assigned Test and Student Results for Tests and Exams in Assessment
Tests and exams are not normally accessible in student accounts. Students can only view and access tests and their results if the test has been assigned and released by an instructor.
1. In the TESTS AND EXAMS section, click in the due date box of the test you wish to assign, then select a due date in the pop-up calendar. Click Save. This step may be completed and saved during the same session as steps 2 and 3 or during a prior session. Note: At this point, students are still not able to see or access the test.
2. In the right-hand column “Deployment/Grade and Results Settings,” select a setting in the row "Students will see their Results and Grades” to indicate when you would like students to see their test scores and results. Choices include:
Option 1: Releases student results on a date of your choice if you click in the text box and select a date from the pop-up calendar, or immediately releases results if the button to the left of “Now” is selected. If you select this setting, click Save to apply the setting.
Note: When selecting a date to allow students to view their scores, do not set a date later then your course end date or your students will not have access to their assessment score. You may intentionally block student access by selecting the date after your course end date.
Option 2 (the pre-selected setting): Requires that all students in the roster have submitted a test and the instructor has graded all student submissions before results are released. This is the most secure setting. If you select this setting, click Save to apply the setting.
Option 3: Requires that all students in the roster have submitted a test before student results are released. If you select this setting, click Save to apply the setting.
3. In the right-hand column “Deployment/Grade and Results Settings,” select a release option in the row "Students can not see and take this exam until." A test can remain unreleased until just prior to administering the test. Choices include:
Option 1: Releases a test on a date of your choice (at 12:00 AM) if you click in the text box, select a date from the pop-up calendar, and click Save.
Option 2: Immediately releases a test when the button to the left of “Now” is selected and the Save button is clicked.
Option 3 (the pre-selected setting): Tests are inaccessible to students when the “Release” button is selected. Click the Save button. Select this option if you no longer want students to have access to an assigned test.
