Watching the Time

Make sure you save regularly near the end of the quiz period and try to finish and submit the quiz before the time expires.

Looking Over the Questions

It is a good idea to review your quiz, or difficult questions in the quiz, before you submit it. You can review questions using the Previous page button or by selecting the question number in the Questions widget. Note: Some quizzes are set up to not allow you to go to a previous page or question. When you are done reviewing your answers, select the Go to Submit Quiz button.

Select the Save All Responses button regularly if there are a lot of questions on a single page or you are working on a time-consuming question.
