Can you make a functioning link to a "hidden" quiz?
 

I recently asked about linking to quizzes and I understand how this is done, but my intention is for the students to only access the quiz via the book in which it is linked; when I hide the quiz from the students view, the link no longer functions - is there a way around this?

There is not an official way to do this, but there is a trick that a lot of people use that works:

1. Suppose your course really has 10 weeks/topics/whatever.

2. Temporarily set your course to 11 weeks.

3. Add the quiz in week 11.

4. Set the course back to 10 weeks.

As mentioned by Tim, you can use the "Orphaned activities" feature as explained in the documentation here.
