How do I take a quiz where I can only view one question at a time in New Quizzes?

Your instructor may choose to build quizzes that show one question at a time. This means you will view only one question on your screen at a time instead of all questions posted at once.

Note: If the quiz you are accessing displays differently, your instructor may have used the Classic Quizzes tool to create the quiz. Functionality may differ between these quiz types. For help with viewing one quiz question at a time, please see How do I take a quiz where I can only view one question at a time?
