Checking the Quiz Event Log to Investigate Student-Reported Quiz Trouble in D2L

This document shows how to check the quiz event log in D2L in order to check into a problem reported by a student.

Sometimes students report issues with quizzes in D2L and the instructor would like to check further into the story. To aid the investigation, an instructor can look at the quiz event log, which is a record of everything the student did in the quiz.

To view the quiz event log:

1) Select quizzes from the course navbar.


2) Click the triangle next to the quiz you are interested in and select "Grade" from the drop down menu.


3) You will now see a list of students with a completed exam. But, if the student reported being unable to submit her/his exam, you will have to do a special search for the student. Select "users with attempts in progress" in the drop down menu under "restrict to". Then click the magnifying glass icon next to the search box. This will find all students who are in between starting and submitting an exam.
