How to set quiz submission views for students
After students submit a quiz, they will receive the confirmation message "Your quiz has been submitted successfully". Besides, a quiz can be also edited so that students see a specific submission view when handing in a quiz. The submission view can provide information about their answers, and can show the correct or incorrect answers, for example.

Questions that need manual evaluation - such as open questions - will be scored 0 in Brightspace. When using these, it is recommended to turn off the options Show questions score and out of score, and Show attempt score and overall attempt score to prevent confusion.
The Message window can also be used to link to other parts in Brightspace. This can be used to link the quiz to other parts of the course, for example to submit an Assignment or to read a new chapter.
An additional view can be added to the quiz submission screen. This possibility offers additional options about what will students see after submitting a quiz. Some examples of what can be shown are related to the IP address, time and date, and duration of the quiz.

Select Limit the amount of time (in minutes) for which this view is available after the quiz is submitted to make the submission view available for a limited amount of time (1-9999 minutes)
