 How to Restrict Reattempts

 

Step 1: In your ProProfs Quiz Maker account,

 
  • Go to the "Settings" page of any quiz.
  • Select "Number of Attempts Allowed" under "General Settings." Click "Save" to apply changes.
 
Number of reattempts
 
NOTE: Quiz Maker counts a user's attempt based on the condition set, i.e., "count attempts at start" or "count attempts at submission." So, if the condition is set to count attempts at the start, it counts as an attempt as soon as the learner starts the quiz.

However, if the condition is set to count on submission, then the learner's attempt is calculated after submitting answers. 

 

Step 2: For this feature to work, enable 'Email' or 'Name' capture.

  • Go to the "Security" settings.
  • Scroll down to Tracking & Lead Capture. 
  • Click to enable 'Name' or 'Email' capture.

 

If an attempt with the same name or email id comes in, the quiz will regard it as a reattempt by the same user.

 How to Allow Additional Attempts

 

Restricting a user to a single attempt at a quiz might lead to inevitable repercussions.

 

For instance, on counting attempts at the start, it might be the case that the user started the quiz but could not submit the answers. In this case, you might need to allow another attempt to the user.

 

Here's how to allow additional attempts:

 

Step 1: Open reports for the particular quiz from your dashboard.

 

Open a Quiz Report

 

Step 2(i): Select the checkbox of the report for the particular user, and click the 'Delete' icon.

 

Deleting the report will allow an additional attempt to the user.

Step 2(ii): In case of an incomplete quiz, where the user has failed to submit the answers, the report is available under the "Started" tab.

 

  • Hover over 'Reports' and click on 'Started.'

 

Go to Started

 

  • Select the checkbox and click on the 'Delete' icon to allow reattempt(s).

Delete the unfinished quiz attempt

 

That is all about allowing or restricting repeated attempts at a quiz by a user.
