How do I change an assessment's access code?

Assessments can be protected by an access code that students must type in before they can start working. You can also change the access code after an assessment has been created.

You may want to change the access code if you're using the same assessment twice with different classes at different times. This stops students from the first class from sharing the code with the second class, potentially giving them access before you're ready.

If you change an access code while students are still working on the assessment, they will need the new access code to re-open it if they leave for any reason.

Navigate to the Assessments tab of your dashboard, and click into the relevant assessment.

In the Details tab, scroll down to the Assessment Conditions section and select Manage Access Code.
