Notes:

  • Quiz Preview does not support displaying student access codes, IP address filtering, and multiple attempts.
  • You should use Quiz Preview to preview and test quizzes instead of using the test student in your course. Quizzes taken as the test student cannot be reset and appear in New Quizzes reports.
