Open a quiz in Take a Test

Create a secure assessment environment by requiring students to open the Take a Test app in Windows 10 to complete your quiz.  Here's how Take a Test works:

  • Shows just the test on the student's device - nothing else.

  • Clears their clipboard to prevent copy and pasting.

  • Prevents access to other websites.

  • Prevents opening and accessing other apps.

  • Prevents sharing, printing, or recording screens.

  • Turns off the ability to change settings, extend displays, see notifications, get updates, or use autofill features.

  • Prevents use of Cortana.

After you select Open with the Take a Test app, the quiz link you share with students opens the Take a Test app on PCs with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. The app requests that students sign in before accessing your quiz.

Important: Students who don't have access to the Take a Test app won't be able to open your quiz.
