Resit button (checkbox)

Checkbox used to enable / disable the Resit button. If a user fails the quiz, this button allows them to try again (i.e. 'sit' the quiz again - 're-sit'. Not a typo of 'reset'!).

Resit button checkbox

'Visible (< pass mark)' just means that even if the button is enabled, it will only show up as long as the user scores less than the required pass mark. Once the user passes the quiz, the button will be disabled anyway.

Results page template

Allows you to customise the text shown on the Results page at the end of the quiz. By default, this text field uses HTML coding to display the score and passing / failing statements - you can delete this if you wish, but if you want the original text back at any time, click the Reset button at the top right corner of the text field.

Button colour

Allows you to pick a custom colour for the Quiz buttons. Click in the text box and either pick a colour from the palette that appears, or type in a colour hex code (e.g.: #1a2b3c).
