  • If you collaborate on a quiz with specific teachers in your school, only you, the quiz owner, can create a summary link for your quiz if a quiz doesn't already exist. Co-authors can still copy and share your summary link, but they cannot create one themselves. Co-authors can create new summary links in other collaboration modes that aren't set for specific people in your organization.

  • Also, be aware that if you share your quiz answers with everyone in your school and then choose to share only with specific people in your school, any pre-existing summary sharing link will be accessible by people inside or outside your school. You can delete an existing summary link to deactivate it. This will reduce access to the response data. To do this, go to the Responses tab> Further Options > link "Get summary"> Remove link (trash can icon). Optional: You can then create a new summary link if you want to share it with a new audience. However, this new summary link will still be available to anyone who receives it into the holding room.
