How long should a quiz be open?

It depends on the purpose of the quiz, the type of questions and where students will be taking the quiz.

Here are some very basic scenarios/thoughts:

  • For a self test I think you could leave it open for weeks as a study tool.
  • If this is a high stakes exam, it needs to be taken in class and I would suggest a tight time limit.
  • Essay questions are going to take a lot more time than multiple choice and students must save their answers regularly.

Perhaps a good starting point would be how long would you allow for this quiz and under what conditions how would students take it if it was paper based? It is good practice not to have the entire quiz on one page.
