Popular FAQs about viewing quiz results

How do I view my users quiz results?

Administrators and Trainers with Analyze/ reports permissions can view test results.

You can view your student's results from the Analyze screen or Reports on the top menu.

You can view data at an individual user, quiz questions, or group level.

Why does the quiz status show 'In progress' when the user has submitted the test?

The analyze table lists all users who have been assigned, started, or submitted your quiz.

The date submitted column shows the status of the quiz a test-taker is currently working on.

If the user is allowed multiple attempts, the date submitted column may not show the date they completed their first quiz. The column will show the status of the current test.

For example:

Let's assume that Emily is taking a test and allowed multiple attempts.

  • Emily completes and submits the quiz.
  • Emily receives an email notification with her result.
  • Multiple quiz attempts are allowed and so Emily presses the Next button on her results screen. The quiz opens for the second attempt.
  • Emily answers one or two questions and decides not to continue with the test. She closes the browser.

On the quiz analyze screen, Emily's name only shows when the Include unsubmitted quizzes toggle is selected.

The status for Emily's quiz shows as Not Submitted or Not Started.

To view Emily's first attempt, press select action and choose previous attempts from the drop-down list.

To avoid student's starting a quiz and not finishing, we recommend the following options.

  • Only allow students to retake the test if they fail.
  • Add a custom message to the results page to remind students that if they start a quiz, they must finish.
  • Customize the navigation buttons so users are very clear what happens when they press the button.

Can I delete the current attempt and just look at data from an earlier quiz?

No, it's not possible to delete the users current attempt only.

You can delete all response data but not the current attempt only.

Can I view a users quiz results for multiple tests in one place?

Yes, you can view a list of all quizzes assigned to a user in one report that can be downloaded to an excel file.

This can be helpful for managers or teachers looking at the users end of year performance.

There are three places that you can access a list of all the users results.

Option 1: If the test-taker has a Respondent account you can view a list of their quizzes on the profile page. You need to select the Results tab.


Option 2: In addition, you can view the Respondent account data from the Reports tab on the top menu.

Next to report type, press then down arrow and select All users.

This lists all users with a Respondent, Trainer, or Admin account.

Option 3: To view all test-takers, select the User report type.

This lists everyone who has taken one of your tests. The name shown is either from the name field on a quiz registration screen or respondent name field. Important! If a test-taker uses a different name each time they take the test the system cannot recognize they are the same user.
