Require a Review for Each Attempt (Definition)

When teacher review is enabled on the student’s course options, you’ll have the option to enable the review for all attempts. If you want to be alerted each time a student attempts to begin an assessment, use this option. This also applies to any Save and Exit attempts. If your school or district allows students to work from home, this option can be used to make sure students are working in a proctored environment when completing assessments. To do this, simply unlock the assessment when students are back on campus.

Here is an example of Teacher Review and Default Review Timeout Length used in conjunction:


  • Let’s assume the default review timeout length is set to 5 minutes for tests. An educator wants the students to start their assessments right away, so he/she think 5 minutes is sufficient time for the students to get started.
  • A student reaches the first test assessment, receives the alert that a teacher review is needed, and she is locked out from taking the test.
  • An educator reviews the student’s work and is ready to complete the review and unlock the test.
  • Once the assessment is unlocked, the student has 5 minutes to begin the test. She is reviewing her notes and loses track of time, and doesn't try to take the test for 10 minutes.
  • She encounters the alert indicating that an educator review is required, and she is locked out of the test again. The educator will need to unlock the assessment once more so that she can begin the test.
