How to Show Quiz Instructions before a timed quiz begins?

Jump to solution

I want to create a timed (15 minutes) quiz for my students, with instructions that warn them it is timed and what materials the quiz covers. I want these instructions to be viewable by students *BEFORE* the clock begins. The clock should not start until the students 'advance' from the quiz instructions to Question 1.

There doesn't appear to be a way to do this presently? When I preview my quiz, the clock begins immediately. Is there some way of managing this differently so students can view instructions before starting the quiz?

When you go to create a quiz, whatever you type in the quiz instructions box is what the students will see before they take the quiz!

So, type away! Add links, color, images, whatever you need! We recently even added our academic integrity policy as a page that we now just link directly in each of these on each quiz which has really helped our carpal tunnel considerably! Here is the student view:

Hope this helps!

Hi there, montgoia...

To add to what  @ddaniels  said, I think the issue for you was that you were previewing the quiz immediately and not viewing it as a student would.  So, the screen shots that Deirdre provided are correct.
