Unlike the quizzes in the course that students can repeat, these tests by default are limited to one attempt unless you change that during the scheduling process thus providing great assessment exams.
Note to LMS users – custom exams created in TestOut can be linked to your LMS. No scheduling is required in TestOut unless you want students to have more than one attempt.
