Why might students attempting to access a Quizzes.Next quiz from a content page receive the following message?
Hi Julian. This is interesting. Was the link to the quiz added using the content selector at the right side of the screen? I just tried linking to a Quizzes.Next assessment in my sandbox course, and when I masqueraded as a test student I was able to view the quiz as expected. This wouldn't be the error message I would expect if the Quizzes.Next assessment were unpublished, but is it possible that a student not enrolled in the course is attempting to use the link to take the quiz or that the student is trying to access the quiz before the official start date of the term?
If everything looks to be in order you might submit a help ticket if you have not already done this so that Canvas Support can investigate what is happening.
Julian, I just read another question where the same error message is displayed, Quiz.next error, so what you are experiencing may be more widespread issue. The recommendation on this page was to contact Support, so hopefully if this is a known issue you can get added to the ticket so you will be notified of any updates.
