Users are presented with several options to adjust the properties of the Quiz or Test. The options are as follows:

Item: What it does:
Time limit Sets a time limit (in minutes) for users to complete the test. If left at 0, no limit will be used. Not applicable for quizzes.
Maximum attempts Limits the number of times users can attempt a test. If left at 0, no limit will be used. Not applicable for quizzes.
Show test status If checked, the time limit and status of the quiz (whether it is optional or must be completed/passed to pass the course) will be displayed in the bottom left corner of the test at all times.
Reveal answers Changes whether feedback notices for correct/incorrect answers show when the test is completed (default/always) or when the test is passed (pass). Not applicable for quizzes.
Restartable (quiz only) Users can set whether the quiz can or cannot be restarted. Not applicable to tests.
Check Answer button Allows uses to either disable or enable the Check Answer button on the quiz questions.
Exit quiz visible / label If checked, an extra button will be enabled in the Results page of a quiz that will exit the quiz and move on to the next page when clicked. Users can also enter their own text label for this button.

The quiz questions are displayed after these options in a list, or ‘pool’:

Question pool - Deliver from pool and Question order

By default, quizzes and tests have only one pool, but you can create additional Question Pools by clicking the + button to the far right. Likewise, you can remove them by clicking the x button to the right of the pool tab label. Switch between pools by clicking said tab labels.

Question pool - add and delete

If you delete a Question Pool with questions inside it, the questions will be transferred over to the previous pool (pools are in order from left to right).

Each pool also has its own settings available for adjustment - Deliver from Pool, and Question Order.

The Deliver from Pool setting lets you choose to use only a limited number of questions in the quiz (or all questions if set to 0, by default).

The Question Order setting allows you to choose whether the questions within a pool are randomly scrambled when the course is played, or kept in the order they appear in the editor.

If both the Deliver from Pool and random Question Order settings are used, you can potentially have a quiz that varies drastically from attempt to attempt - particularly if a smaller Deliver number and larger question pools are used.
