Previewing Quizzes in D2L

D2L provides a preview option that allows you to view a quiz as your students will see it.

  1. Go to your course's Quizzes area.
  2. Click the dropdown arrow next to the quiz you want to view, and select Preview. The “Preview Quiz” page will open.
  3. Click the Start Quiz button at the bottom of the page. The Quiz will open, and you’ll be able to answer questions on the quiz exactly as students will.
  4. Click the Exit Preview button on the top-right side of the page when you are done previewing the Quiz.

NOTE: If your quiz has a randomized subset of questions, you will need to preview the quiz a number of times to see all of its questions.


If you discovered that changes need to be made to any of your quiz's questions after you previewed it, you can edit them where they are set up in your Quizzes area, whether in the Question Library or the quiz itself.
