The following options are specific accessibility permissions to allow participants access to their digital test.
For a practice test, you may want to allow your participants to take the test multiple times. You can allow multiple attempts by first enabling the option and then filling in the number of attempts the participants can make. Confirm by clicking Save. This setting is also available for hand-in assignments.
If you prefer your participants to fill in a password to access the test, you can enable this option. When you click on the Use password box, a random password will automatically be generated for you. You can also delete this password and create your own. Confirm the password by clicking Save. If this password is changed during a live test, participants that are already busy with the test will be able to continue.
Restricted access to other pages
