Quiz and Exam Passwords
Note: For more information on Environment Settings Records, see Creating Environment Settings Records.
By default, students may access the quizzes and exams at any point in their training. If you select the "Strictly Linear" property in the Environment Settings Record, students can't skip ahead to the quizzes and exams, but they will be able to access the modules without restriction when they are at that point in their training.
Some instructors prefer to restrict access to the quiz and exam modules, especially if they are administered in the classroom. This is achieved by assigning a Quiz or Exam Password in the Environment Settings Record. There is one Quiz Password that applies to every quiz module and one Exam Password that applies to every final exam (test) module. To apply a different password to each quiz, you will need to modify the Quiz Password in the Environment Settings Record after each quiz. Students usually share the same Environment Settings Record, so this is a simple procedure.
Changing or Adding a Quiz or Exam Password
  1. Use the Login button at the top of any VIASINC webpage to log into the VIASINC environment with your Master/Admin account number and password.
  2. Click the "Launch Admin" button at the top of the webpage to launch the System Administration utility.
  3. Your Master Account Record will display. Open up the Manage file menu in the black box at the top of the page by clicking on the "+" sign, then choose "Environment Settings."
