Maximum Attempts for a Test

What is Maximum Attempts for a Test?

The setting Maximum Attempts allows you to set the maximum number of times a test taker can attempt a test. If you are using the AutoProctor Google Forms add-on, you can find it in the settings of the add-on, under the Main section, as shown below:

You can also find it on the Test Settings page on the AutoProctor website for all types of tests:

We Recommended Setting Maximum Attempts to 1

Earlier, we recommended setting Maximum Attempts to be a number greater than 1, in case test takers faced errors and had to reload the page. Reloading the page created a new attempt and the test taker's progress was lost. But now, AutoProctor supports resuming of attempts for different types of tests, so reloading the test page resumes their latest unsubmitted attempt, and they can continue from where they left off. Setting Maximum Attempts to 1 makes sure that test takers cannot attempt the same test more than once. This article explains everything you need to know about resuming an attempts.
