The act of making an assessment available to its users is referred to as publishing. Users will not be able to access your assessment until it is published. You should make all modifications and corrections to an assessment before publishing it. If you find an error or wish to otherwise modify a published assessment, see ARCHIVED: Modifying an existing assessment.

To publish an assessment you've created:

  1. In the menubar of the relevant course or project site, click Tests & Surveys.
  2. On the "Assessments" page, under "Unpublished Assessments", click the --Select Action-- drop-down box next to the assessment that you wish to publish and choose Publish.
  3. On the "Settings" page, make sure all settings are configured as you want them, and then click Save Settings and Publish.

    For more information about the settings and their options, see ARCHIVED: Assessment settings.

  4. On the "Check Settings and Add Notification" page, you'll see the settings you configured for the assessment, plus a URL you can use to distribute the assessment. You can choose to send an email notification to students upon publishing the assessment. Click Publish again to confirm, or Cancel to abort.

On the "Assessments" page, your newly published assessment will appear under "Published Assessments"; a copy also remains under "Unpublished Assessments" in case future modifications are necessary.

Note: You can only export the unpublished copy of the assessment for use in future semesters, not the published copy. Do not delete the unpublished copy unless you know you won't need it in the future.
