The new Brightspace release is available from 22 September 2023 10:00.


Quizzes – Quiz Timing Improvements featuring Synchronous Quiz

This release updates the Quiz Creation experience for instructors and students by adding a new synchronous quiz option.

With this release, instructors can facilitate quizzes where students take their attempts simultaneously, which is convenient for in-class sessions. The new addition of synchronous quizzes enables instructors to set up a quiz where the quiz timer starts on the start date for all students rather than when the student launches the quiz (asynchronous). The quiz timer then ends for all students at the same time.

The Quizzes - Timing and Display article has been updated to reflect this change.

Quizzes - Quiz List will now show out-of-date Quizzes.

The Quiz list will now show out-of-date quizzes for students. This means any quizzes that have passed the End Date or have yet to start will be shown in the Quiz List.

Quizzes can still be hidden from this page by setting the visibility slider to the hidden setting in the Quiz settings page.
