Moodle 3: Activities & Resources: Password Protecting a Quiz

Instructors can require students to enter a password to take a quiz. This is helpful if a quiz is assigned to a group of students, instead of the whole class. The student will have to enter the password before they begin.

To Password Protect a Quiz:

1. Log in to Moodle and select your course.

2. Turn editing on by clicking the Edit button at the top right corner of the page.
