Students can retake quizzes by default, but if you need an alternative to turn off the ability to retake quizzes, check out the options outlined below.
Quiz Retake Functionality
Currently, Thinkific doesn't limit students from retaking a quiz or restrict the number of retry attempts. Additionally, students also have unlimited redoes, whether or not a passing grade requirement has been put in place.
The reason for this is that Thinkific quizzes are designed to be a quick and easy way to not only help test your student's knowledge, but to also reinforce what they have just learned. The ability to retake a quiz encourages your student to review previous lesson content before returning to the quiz, to make sure they fully understand your course material.
We understand there are some situations where you may want to limit retries. If the ability to cap or remove quiz redoes would help your students, add your vote to this feature request by sending us your feedback!
What alternative options are there?
Create a Brillium Exam
If your course requires a retry limit, one option to consider is Brillium.
Brillium is a third party exam platform that you can use with Thinkific on our Grow plan and higher. Brillium provides advanced exam options including timed exams, retakes limits, various question types and more!

Hide the Retake Button
If you prefer to use our built in quizzes, another option is to hide the retake button within the Course Player using custom code.
We do not provide support for code customizations - however, if you are working with a developer and would like to make these customizations, it is available on our Pro plan and higher. Please reach out if you would like to go this route and we can let you know next steps.
