limiting quiz attempts



  • Walter Pelowski
    No, currently there is no way of limiting the responses.  Other educators have chosen to only accept the responses to the first quiz submitted.  I don't know if that's something you could do, but it's an option.

    Could you work on this?  It is difficult to accept only first quiz when there are 150 students in 9 sections and the quizzes are listed under their email address which are based on 3 letters and a number.  Not on a last or first name.
  • Walter Pelowski
    Thanks for the response on why this is problematic for you.  I will share your concerns and your feature request with the quizzing lead.

    Has this been added as a feature, cause I'm still not seeing it anywhere?
  • mari.m.menard
    I would love this feature added as well.

    You can do it easy enough with an Excel macro. The "detailed" csv file gives all of the answers in the order they come in (I think - correct me if wrong). So you just need a loop to run through the answers and record (count) only the first entry.

    The problem I've run into is that they can login with a fake name, get the answers, and then login with their own name and get 100%. It would be nice if Camtasia would also capture some machine address from the submitters. Still not full proof but a help. Or allow and instructor supplied login list to restrict access to "real" students.
