What Happens when the Settings are Changed?


Due Dates:

  • If students don't turn in an assignment by the due date, it is marked missing in the gradebook. If the due date is extended, it will it automatically adjust the missing status.

Start Date:

  • If a start date is not initially assigned, but later added, the assessment will be removed from the students list until that start date has approached.

Availability Windows:

  • Adding or extending availability windows is possible, but should be done prior to when the last one expires in order for the changes to take affect. This is because assessments will auto-submit when the last availability window expires. Once that has happened, changing availability windows will have no affect on the assessments since they've already been submitted.

Instructions:

  • Students will see edits to instructions when they start the assessment.

Include Score in Final Grade:

  • This setting can be toggled on or off before, during, or after the students have taken the assessment. It will not impact the way the student takes the assessment, it simply will add or remove the score from the calculation of their final grade.

Allow Post Grading Review:

  • This setting can be toggled on or off before, during, or after the students have taken the assessment. Toggling it on will allow them to view their assessment results; toggling it off will lock the assessment for their viewing after it's been grading.

Lockdown Browser

  • This setting can be toggled on or off before, during, or after the students have taken the assessment. Toggling it on will enable the Lockdown Browser. Toggling it off will disable the Lockdown Browser. Note - The student must have the Respondus lockdown browser installed on their device in order to utilize this feature.

Randomizing Questions:

  • You can change this setting even after students have started the assessment. In order for the changes to take affect for students that are currently working on the assessment, the student will have to save/exit the assessment and re-enter.

Allow Student Annotation:

  • You can change this setting even after students have started the assessment. In order for the changes to take affect for students that are currently working on the assessment, the student will have to save/exit the assessment and re-enter.

Time Limit:

  • If a time limit is added or changed while students are taking the assessment, students will have to save/exit and re-enter the assessment for the new time limit to take affect. It will automatically adjust to the new time limit by deducting the amount of time they've already spent in the assessment.

Allow Multiple Attempts:

  • This setting can be toggled on or off before, during, or after the student submits the assessment. If this setting is toggled on after the assessment has been graded, the students will be able to take the assessment again, but it will overwrite their previous scores.
