Your setting choices will be summarized for you on the confirmation screen. Review all of the information to make sure it is correct. (If you need to make changes, you can go back by clicking Edit Settings.)

You have the option to notify students when you publish the assessment. The default setting is without notification. Notifying students sends and email to their external email address to let them know the assessment has been published. It sends the message at the time of publication, NOT on the start date of the assessment.

If your assessment has an end date, you may select to Display due date on Calendar. This will post an event on the Schedule/Calendar for the course on the date the assessment is due.

Click Publish to make the assessment available to students.
