    • You must click “Yes” under Test Availability to "Make available to students" (here you can choose to send out an announcement when the test becomes available to students). Watch UCR Prof. Annie Ditta walk you through it.
    • The "Force Completion" option will automatically submit the exam if the student loses their connection, so this is NOT recommended.

    • Display allows you to decide when and how long the test link will be available to students.
    • Test Exceptions allows you tp set different dates and times for students who need accommodations.
    • In "Show Test Results and Feedback to Students" we recommend you choose "After attempts are graded" before correct answer are released to students (in case students need multiple attempts due to technological issues).
