I do this all of the time.

I create a quiz and give them 5 days to complete it.  They can take the quiz as many times as they wish until the close date.

  1. Set to accept the highest score of all attempts.
  2. Leave it at unlimited retakes.
  3. Make sure you set the SHUFFLE questions to YES.
  4. Set the delay of the quiz re-take to 1 hour. (other wise they will just retake like crazy)
  5. Set the feedback to IMMEDIATE instead of DEFERRED. I kinda like this so they can check if an answer is correct immediately.
  6. Uncheck "display correct answer" for all except when the quiz is closed.
  7. Each attempt builds on test set to NO (muhahaha)

Shuffling the questions makes it a little tougher to cheat from their friends, but I don't really care one way or the other.

You can see that this student took the quiz 3 times.  So basically I'm forcing them to study.
