You will see a timer at the top right hand side of the screen. This shows participants the time they have left to finish the quiz.


You have got three attempts to complete your test in one hour.  

Extra time

You can reward people for creating an account by giving them extra time. This option is only for registered users.

Start-end date

You can set a date when participants are able to start the online quiz and set the last day of activity. This can be up to the very minute.


From 22nd of April until 28th of April ‘till 21:00 the quiz will be online. In that amount of time the online quiz should be finished. Another possibility is that you set the same start and end date, but that participants have an hour to finish the online quiz.

Why is a timer important?
