  • Tick Allow only users with special access to see this quiz to only allow a specific group of student to have access to the quiz.
  • Click Add Users to Special Access to select the group of students that get special access as well as specify the details of that special access (you set a start and end date for the quiz, a time limit and the max. amount of attempts)

Manage IP Restrictions

Click Manage IP Restrictions

  • Click + IP Range to identify which IP-addresses are permitted. This is particularly useful for when you want students to partake in quizzes on campus or at a special location.
  • Note: the Brightspace server can only view external facing IP addresses that your institution is using, so don't use any internal ones.
  • To get the right IPs to use, log into a computer from where you want students to take a quiz and view your Login History to see the IP address.
