What is the Tests & Quizzes Event Log?

The Event Log shows certain student activities for all Tests & Quizzes in the site. It is created and maintained automatically.  

Events recorded include (for each participant), entry to the assessment (date and time), submission of the assessment (date and time), duration of the student session in minutes, and errors (if any) detected by the T&Q system.

Note: There must be existing student submissions in order for data to appear in the event log.

Go to Tests & Quizzes.

Select the Test & Quizzes tool from the Tool Menu in your site.

Click Event Log.
