Student: How do I take a quiz?
You will learn how to take a quiz in your course in TITANium.
Once an instructor has set up and scheduled a quiz within your course, you should see the link to it on your course main page.
1. Enter your course in TITANium.
2. Scroll down the page to the link for the quiz.
By default links within the course are blue in color. The icon for a Quiz activity is a blue paper with a red checkmark over it.
3. Click on the link to the quiz.
3.1. However, if the title of the quiz is light grey in color, then you cannot click on the link.
In this sample below, the (1) text to the quiz is light grey meaning you cannot click on it. In this case, (2) the text below the title states, "Available from September 2, 2016", meaning that the link will appear when the condition or restriction is met (i.e. September 2, 2016). The instructor may set other kinds of restrictions, like completing a discussion or assignment before granting access to a quiz.
4. Read the instructions and requirements for the quiz.
After reading (1) the instructions written by your instructor, be sure to note (2) the number of allowed attempts. In this example, each student may only take the quiz one time. Note also the (3) open and close dates listed for the quiz. If no dates are shown, then the instructors has not set them. If a (4) time limitation is set, then you will see how many minutes or hours you have to take the quiz. Finally, the grading method will display if more than one attempt is allowed. The grading method may include: Highest grade, Average grade, First attempt, or Last attempt.
5. When ready, click on Attempt quiz now.
If the Attempt quiz now button is not displayed, then either the current date is not within the open and close date range or you have already taken the quiz.
6. Click on Start attempt in the Confirmation window.
7. The quiz has now started.
Items of note:
The (1) Quiz Navigation on the left is where you can skip around to different questions (if enabled by the instructor). You will be able to see which questions you have already answered.
The (2) Timer if enabled will count down your remaining time. By default, the quiz will automatically close when the timer runs out.
The (3) Flag question maker will mark the question, so that if you have time, you can look at that question again (if enabled by the instructor). The marker will also be there when you Review the quiz (if enabled by the instructor).
Select or type an answer for each question, then click on the (4) Next button or click on the next question in Quiz Navigation.
If the instructor has set the quiz for "sequential" navigation, then you must answer the questions in order and you cannot return to any previous question.
8. Once you have gone through the questions, the Summary of attempt page will display.
If the instructor has set the navigation to "free", you may go back to any question and change your answer, using the Quiz Navigation menu.
9. When you are finished, click on Submit all and finish.
10. Click on Submit all and finish in the Confirmation window.
11. You will now see the Summary of your previous attempts.
The information you will see in the Summary of your previous attempts depends upon the instructor; however, by default, you should see your score. This sample quiz only allows one attempt and only shows the student the score.
12. In this example, the student is allowed to review the quiz.
Click on the Review link, to review the quiz and how you answered each question.
13. You may navigate through the questions.
If enabled by the instructor, you can see which questions were answered correctly and read any feedback included with the questions. Click on Finish review when done.
14. If the quiz is set for multiple attempts, you may click on Re-attempt quiz.
