What is the Event Log in Tests & Quizzes?

Updated on

The Event Log in Tests & Quizzes shows certain student activities for all Tests & Quizzes in the site. The Event Log is created and maintained automatically for each assessment.  

Recorded events are organized by user, and they include: entry to the assessment (date and time), submission of the assessment (date and time), duration of the user submission session in minutes, and errors (if any) detected in the system.

Note:  Submissions must be made to an assessment in order for data to appear in the Event Log.
