Create/Customize the Submission View for a Quiz

Submission views can be created to allow students to go back and review a submitted quiz. Customizing the submission view allows instructors to choose what information the student sees upon completing and going back to review a quiz. Note: Quizzes with written responses or short answers requiring grading will not display automatically until feedback is given and the quiz has been graded. Also, providing a submission view will not allow the student to re-enter the quiz and modify their responses. 

You can:

  1. Customize the Default View (not recommended). The Default view is what students see immediately upon submitting their quiz. The Default view typically does not allow students to see answers to a quiz, but does allow them to view their score on auto-graded items. If you adjust the Default view to allow students to see the answers to a quiz, keep in mind the Default view is what students see as soon as they submit their quiz. Thus, showing answers in the Default view while the quiz is still in progress would reveal answers to the quiz before all students have submitted the quiz.
  2. Add and customize an Additional View (recommended). Additional views, therefore, can be created with a specified release date and time that allows you to release information, or answers, after a certain time. For example, an Additional view could be created for after all students have submitted the quiz (or after the quiz is closed) to allow students to view which questions they answered correctly and/or incorrectly, as well as answers to questions. Another Additional view could also be created to allow students to see the class statistics and could be set to release at the end of the term. If a quiz has multiple attempts, you can also specify a score required on an attempt in order to release the submission view.
  3. Create a second Additional View within the Submission Views tab and name it “Shutdown View.” Select No in the View Details section and select the date/time you would like the first additional view to close to your students. Important Note: This second additional view will “shutdown” the first additional view as only the most recent submission view is the active one. This will ensure that your quiz questions and answers are not available past the time you plan to have it available.

Directions for the three options are below.
