Different "activation" types on tests

I want the students to be able to see a tests description in advance, but not be able to take the test before at set date and time. This so I can write on the test, what the student must know before taking the test.


Just add a option to the managmentpanel of at test for the tacher. And the student should only see the "Take Test"  button while the second activation period is "on".

    Hi Roger,

    Thanks for sharing your idea. I totally see your point, and I was just discussing this with the team developing the new sharable mobile friendly test tool. Although it’s tempting to add more options to the new test tool, we are afraid to add more complexity…students also might be “confused” if they can see both tests that are active and tests that are not active. On the other hand, being able to see tests that are coming up and knowing what you have to prep for obviously has its advantages.

    For the time being we are focused on finalize a new mobile friendly, shareable test tool. We don’t have capacity to take on more work in the new test tool scope, so we’ll have to come back to this idea later on. That said, we are working on making the whole course work flow better, and I’ll feed this idea in to that work.

    Please follow the latest release estimates for the new test tool on the roadmap:



    Best regard

    This is a nice feature which has the added benefit of moving learning goals to te test description. When sharing tests, more tests will have included a "test-curriculum".

    This would be a fabulous option.  It will also allow students to see the test in their task block so that they know it is coming up.  While not being able to take the test.
