How do I publish an assessment (i.e. test or quiz)?
After you have created an assessment, you must publish it before students can view and submit it.
If you are sure that the default or current settings are appropriate, you can publish from either the action menu or the edit assessment screen.
From the Tests & Quizzes tool home screen, choose the Settings option in the drop-down menu for the quiz you would like to publish.
If you are currently editing the quiz in question, click the Settings link at the top of the assessment editing screen.
See the article How do I view and modify the settings of an assessment?
Note: Settings are typically adjusted fully on the Draft before publishing.
Your setting choices will be summarized for you on the confirmation screen. Review all of the information to make sure it is correct. (If you need to make changes, you can go back by clicking Edit Settings.)
You have the option to notify students when you publish the assessment. The default setting is without notification. Notifying students sends and email to their external email address to let them know the assessment has been published. It sends the message at the time of publication, NOT on the start date of the assessment.
If your assessment has an end date, you may select to Display due date on Calendar. This will post an event on the Schedule/Calendar for the course on the date the assessment is due.
Click Publish to make the assessment available to students.
