Just starting this page. When I have done some more I'll link it to the quiz menu here: https://docs.moodle.org/24/en/Quiz_settings. Please check for completeness and accuracy. --Derek Chirnside 08:52, 3 April 2013 (WST)

The quiz is served up by the Moodle server. If you want to have various options for security further to those in the quiz settings, these need to be implemented at the computer end.

There are several options:

Windows policies on the network

Essentially, by tweaking policies on a network you can lock a computer to only be able to access a browser, to disable Alt-Tab and to set the browser to go to only one domain (ie your test). here is a random URL: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307882
