When taking a quiz on iLearn, take time to read the details that are posted before attempting a quiz. The description page for the quiz will tell you important information on when the quiz will open, how long you have to take the quiz, if you can take more than one attempt and when the quiz will close. Note that if the quiz is timed, the countdown continues even if you are logged out of iLearn. Clicking on the Save without submitting button will save your progress, but it does not pause the timer.
If there are short answer questions, exact spelling is required. If you enter an answer that is misspelled, iLearn will mark it as incorrect.
We have implemented two improvements to the quiz to make it a more reliable experience. The first is a change to prevent content being lost if you are accidentally logged out of iLearn. If you are logged out of iLearn due to your session timing out (meaning you were logged in, but inactive for more than four hours) or are logged out due to having multiple iLearn pages open, the quiz will save your answers and should retain them when you re-log in. However, if your window closes or you quit your browser without saving, the accidental logout protection will NOT trigger, and your content will not be saved. As a reminder, it is usually recommended that you not have multiple tabs of iLearn open when you are taking a quiz, and navigating away from a quiz while you are taking it may be interpreted as cheating by your instructors.
The second improvement is intended to prevent accidental double submissions of quizzes. Once you have clicked on the submit quiz button, an animated icon will appear on the button indicating that the quiz is being sent and you will not be able to click on the submit button again. However, remember to never double click on the submission button, as the button lock may not trigger if you click too quickly.
Make sure you are not using any other network intensive applications while taking a quiz, such as streaming video or audio, or running any large downloads in the background. We generally recommend using a wired connection whenever possible when taking a quiz, as sometimes WiFi connections can drop out and prevent you from submitting a quiz successfully.
As a final reminder, make sure you do not wait until the last minute to do your quizzes and exams on iLearn. The later you wait, the higher the risk you are taking of a technical problem happening. The helpdesk will be open throughout finals during our normal hours of 8AM to 5PM, Monday through Friday. We cannot answer emails, phone, or offer chat support outside of those hours.
Good luck on all your quizzes and final exam!
