Taking a Brightspace Quiz

Brightspace Quiz Tool

Some instructors choose to use Quizzes as an assessment tool for a number of purposes, which could include a self-test, a pop quiz, weekly quiz or even midterm and final exams. Quizzes can include a wide variety of types of questions, such as multiple-choice, short answer, matching or even long answer essay questions. Your instructor may choose to make your results available to you right away, or at a later date.

NOTE: We recommend that you use a desktop or laptop computer when writing an online quiz or test.
