How can I make my quizzes secure and private?

You have a lot of options to prevent cheating in online assessments and to ensure they are accessed by authorized users only. Access control options include: 

 

Make your quiz link private: 

You can make a quiz private. When enabled, it prevents your quiz from getting listed on search engines or in public sections of ProProfs. Anyone can access the quiz, but only with the unique quiz URL. You can share the quiz link with your learners to allow them access to the quiz.

 

To make your quiz private, navigate to "Settings" -----> "Security," and select "Private" for 'Quiz Security,' then select "Private access with a link." Save your settings to implement the changes.

 

Add password protection:

For additional protection, you can password protect your quiz. It ensures that only those who know the password can access your quiz.

 

To make your quiz private, navigate to "Settings" -----> "Security," and select "Private" for 'Quiz Security,' then select "Private access with a link & quiz password." You can change this password any time. Save your settings to implement the changes.  

 

Grant access only to approved users:

Select "Private access for selected users & groups," and click "Manage Users" to add a list of users via the classroom to selectively allow each user or group of users access to the quiz. You can change a user's permissions or reset their password at any point. 

 

Each user has a unique username & password. Please note that these users need not register on ProProfs (you can add them directly from your dashboard), however, if you do want to integrate with your existing user authentication system, we have Single Sign-On support as well. Read "How do I assign individual username and password to quiz takers?" to learn more.

 

Make your quiz available only within certain IP ranges

You can make your quiz available only within certain IP ranges. It prevents spam as well as cheating in online tests as only those learners, connected to the Internet within your selected IP ranges, can take the quiz. Read "How to make my quiz available only within certain IP ranges?" to learn more.
