While it's easy to generate a quiz on the spot, you may wish to schedule quizzes for later dates. This is beneficial because it means that you don't have to log in to your teacher dashboard to issue a quiz. This article will show you how to schedule a quiz and edit your scheduled quizzes.

Scheduling an Assessment

Step 1: Click on the class you'd like to schedule a quiz for.

Step 2: Click on the Assessments tab. Then, click on Schedule Assessments.

Step 3: Customize your quiz. 

Just like when you create a quiz on the spot, you'll be able to select how long the quiz is active for, how many questions it will have, how many SATA questions should be included, and which students you'd like to issue the assessment to (note: you cannot schedule ahead for specific students at this time). The form allows you to schedule a single quiz or create a recurring schedule. 

Fill out the Schedule Assessments form according to your needs and click Schedule. 

Creating a Single Assessment

The Schedule Assessments form defaults to Does not repeat. This allows you to create a single quiz as opposed to a recurring schedule. 

In the example above, prepared students would receive a quiz on December 15th at 8:00 am and will have 48 hours to complete it. The quiz would have 15 questions, 5 of which would be SATA.

Creating a Recurring Schedule

You can create a recurring weekly or monthly schedule by selecting Custom under the Repeat dropdown. This will open a new row for you to determine how frequently you'd like this quiz to recur. 

In the example above, the teacher has scheduled a weekly quiz on Thursdays beginning on December 15th and ending on March 31st. 

Editing Scheduled Assessments

After scheduling quizzes, you may need to edit them--like when that surprise fire drill or pep rally ruins your plans! Editing scheduled quizzes is quick and easy. 

Step 1: From the Assessments tab, click View Schedule

To edit a single quiz, click on the quiz from the calendar view. 

You will be given several options to edit your quiz, such as changing the date and time, number of total questions, and number of SATA questions. You can also adjust the quiz validity period and whether you'd like the quiz issued to prepared students or the whole class. Click Update when you've made your adjustments. 

Just need to change the date? You can reschedule a quiz by dragging and dropping it to a different day.

If you need to edit all of the quizzes in your schedule, it's best to clear your original schedule and create a new one. Just click Clear Schedule to the right of your calendar view.

You can also print your schedule or schedule more quizzes from here.
