Attempt Logs for Assignments and Tests

When to Use?

Attempt Logs prove to be an indispensable tool for validating issues students may encounter during an assessment. The logs also help instructors identify signs of academic dishonesty.


The report is available for assessments where students are named and anonymous assessments where student names are concealed. For anonymous assessments, the report becomes active after grades are posted, and the anonymity is removed. This ensures that the Attempt Logs report is a robust tool even in scenarios where student identities are initially concealed.

For tests, the logs provide the following:

  • Detailed information, including the date and time of the start and answers to each question
  • Question-specific details, such as question number, a preview of the question, and estimated time spent on each question
  • Submission receipt number, final grade, and attempt grade
  • Easy toggling between all In Progress and Submitted attempts for detailed assessment tracking

For assignments, the logs provide the following:

  • Start and submission date and time
  • Submission receipt number
  • Easy toggling between different attempts for a holistic view

For both tests and assignments, attempt logs indicate whether the submission was made by the student or auto-submitted.

Instructors can access the Attempt Logs from two areas:

  • The More options menu on the assessment’s submission page – this is only available for individual assessments

The 3-dot menu for an item to access the Attempt Log.


  • The Grades tab in the Student Overview page – this is available for both group and individual assessments.
