Submitting a quiz on behalf of a student

Submitting a quiz on behalf of a student is beneficial in the event that a student is unable to submit the quiz themselves, perhaps due to a technical error. 

You can view student’s activities during the quiz such as the time they entered/completed the quiz, and the time they responded to specific questions. To access this tool select Grade from the drop-down menu associated with the desired quiz and click the Attempts Log button.

  1. Click on the drop-down menu arrow next to Submit in the top menu bar and choose Quizzes.


  2. Select the down arrow next to the desired quiz and select Grade.

  3. On the Users tab click the Show Search Options.


  4. From the Restrict to drop-down menu select Users with attempts in progress and click on the Search icon (magnifying glass).
    Note: Leaving the Search for… field blank will produce all in-progress quizzes. If you are looking for a specific student you can enter their first name, last name, or student number.


  5. Find the attempt under the student’s name that has “(in progress)” and select the icon next to it (Enter Quiz as User).

  6. A confirmation window will appear asking you to confirm whether you would like to enter the quiz as the student, click the Yes button.

  7. Review the students' responses and make your desired changes. When ready click the Submit Quiz button to submit the quiz on behalf of the student. You also have the option to Exit Impersonating.
