Test Access Log

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

The ACCESS LOG allows instructors and TAs to verify student activity or lack of activity during a TEST. The information in the Test Access Log is helpful in situations when it is necessary to confirm activity such as whether or not a student began a test, ran into a problem while taking the test, or properly submitted the test. Instructors and other users who are granted permission can view the Access Log for a test by locating the student attempt in the Grade Center, viewing the student's Attempts page, and clicking the Access Log button.

Available as of May 8, 2017

Instructors will be able to send reminders to students about incomplete coursework, including tests. More information is available on the Send Reminder page.
