Students can retake quizzes by default, but we do have an alternative option if this is a requirement for your course.
Quiz Retake Functionality
We don't currently have the option to prevent students from retaking a quiz or limit the number of retake attempts. Note that students also have unlimited retakes with or without a passing grade requirement.
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 also reinforce what they have just learned. The ability to retake a quiz encourages your student to take the quiz again if they don't reach 100% the first time around. They can also review previous lesson content before returning to the quiz to make sure they fully understand your course material.
All that said, we understand there are some situations where you would like to prevent retakes. If a retake limit would help your students and you would like to add your vote to this feature request, we would love to hear from you. Please send us your feedback!
What alternative options are there?

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.
