Start, Due, and End Dates can be used to make a quiz available to students for a limited time. Students will be able to view information about the quiz, but will not be able to start taking it before the Start Date or after the End Date. There are two types of date restrictions for quizzes.
- A Start Date indicates when the assignment is released to students. Prior to the Start Date, students will be able to see the quiz (unless it has been hidden), but they will not be able to access it.
- A Due Date is the instructor-given date (and time) deadline for submitting a quiz. However, a student may submit after the Due Date (up until an End Date, if one is set), in which case it is marked late, in red, in both the instructor and the student view.
- An End Date is more restrictive. It cuts off the quiz at the End Date and time set, where the student can no longer start a quiz.
Note: An End Date only restricts the ability to start the quiz, not to complete the quiz. For example, if a student starts a quiz that has a 60 minute time limit at 5 minutes before the End Date/time the student will still have 60 minutes to complete the quiz.
- If a Due Date and End Date are both set, then the quiz can be submitted late, after the Due Date, until the End Date is reached.
