In this video, we will show you how
to complete an exam assignment.
We will demonstrate how to do this
in a web browser, but note that you can also access these features in a similar way
using our fantastic Nagwa Study app.
To complete an exam assignment, you
must have a student account and be signed in to www.nagwa.com.
First, click on “Assignments” in
the toolbar, followed by “Exams”. If you have been assigned any exams
by your teacher, you’ll now see a display of all of the exams that you have been
Each exam will be represented by a
box containing information such as the title, the number of questions, and the start
and due dates of the exam assignment.
Note that an exam assignment is a
timed exercise. This means that once you start the
assignment, you’ll only have a limited amount of time to submit your answers to the
questions. Once this time runs out, you will
no longer be able to edit your answers.
For each assignment, you’ll be able
to see the status in the top-right corner of the box.
For any new exams, you’ll see the
status “New” in the top right, alongside the duration of the exam. In this example, our exam
assignment has a duration of 90 minutes.
At any time between the start date
and the due date of our assignment, we can begin the exam by clicking the “Start”
Once confirmed, you’ll be taken to
the exam itself.
You’ll be able to see the exam
timer at the top of the screen. It is worth noting that the timer
will continue to count down even when you are not actively working on the exam
assignment. This means that you can leave the
exam page and come back, but the exam countdown will not pause. Make sure you are ready before
For the exam, each multiple-choice
question is displayed on its own page. Once you have picked one of the
multiple-choice answers, make sure to hit “Save” and you will automatically progress
to the next question.
Unlike with a worksheet, once you
start answering the questions, you won’t receive instant feedback. Instead, you’ll need to input your
answer and then click “Save”.
If you don’t know the answer to a
question, you can also skip it by clicking “Next Question” in the bottom-right
On the right of the page, you will
notice a grid of buttons that allows you to freely navigate between all of the
questions in the exam. From here, you can go back to any
questions you skipped or jump forward to see the later questions in a paper.
By default, each of the questions
will appear as a gray button, but once a question has a saved answer, the button
will turn blue.
Using the grid, you can also return
to questions with a saved answer and change your answer using the “Change” button in
the bottom right. This allows you to edit your
multiple-choice answer and save it once again.
Once you’ve finished working on the
exam and have saved all of your answers, click the “Submit” button in the bottom
right. Don’t worry, if you click “Submit”
while there is still time remaining, or if you accidentally close your browser
window, you can easily return and edit your answers.
Back on the exam page, notice that
the status of the exam has updated to “In Progress” and the action has updated to
“Continue”. Clicking this allows you to finish
working through the questions.
Remember that you only have a
limited amount of time to continue answering the questions. We recommend not leaving the page
so you can easily keep track of the time limit.
Once the timer runs, all of your
saved answers will automatically be submitted, and you will no longer be able to
work on this exam assignment. Back on the “Exams” page, the
assignment will be marked as “Expired” and you will have no further available
actions until the due date is reached.
Once the due date passes, the
status will update to “Closed”. You can return to this page to see
the results of your exam assignment by clicking on the “Report” button.
Alternatively, you can access exam
reports from the dashboard. Click on “Dashboard” and then “View
Report” under “Exam Assignments”. From here, you’ll see a full list
of all of your completed exams along with the summary statistics for each exam.
If you would like to see the
answers from a particular exam in more detail, click “View” on the right-hand
Each report shows the correct
answer to each question highlighted in green alongside your answers so you can
evaluate your progress.
If you found any questions
particularly challenging, you might find it helpful to watch one of our lesson
videos or practice some worksheet questions at your own pace. You can use the search bar at the
top right of the screen or ask your teacher for advice on where to find the best
content for your needs.
