On New Quizzes assessments that were created before ~Feb-Mar 2021, students are still able to take the assessment after the until date via the submission details page, if they had previously had an attempt and multiple attempts are enabled.

Expected Behavior


Instead they should not be able to take the quiz via the submission details page if the until date has passed.


No workaround exists at this time.

Steps to Reproduce


Prerequisites: Have a published course with student enrolled and a new quizzes assessment that was created ~Feb 2021 or before

  1. Set the until date on the quiz

  2. Enable multiple attempts on the quiz

  3. As a student take the quiz before the until date

  4. Once the until date has past, go to the assignment and select Submission Details

  5. Notice that within the frame the Take Now button is available.
