Before you start your quiz

Google Chrome and Firefox are the preferred browsers for accessing FLO, and in particular, accessing quizzes.   The use of Safari is not recommended.

Before you start a quiz, make sure you check how many attempts are allowed, and any time limit set. 
In the example below, only one attempt is allowed, with a one hour time limit.

Note: If your quiz has a time limit, you will see a 'time left' timer counting down to the right of your screen.  Please note that the timer will continue to tick down even if you close the quiz.  You can't stop the clock!

When you are ready to start your quiz, click attempt quiz now.  attempt quiz now button

During the quiz

Navigate your way through the quiz by using the 'next' and 'previous' buttons, or by using the 'quiz navigation' panel. 
Please do not use the 'back' or 'forward' buttons in your browser while completing a quiz.

Quiz troubleshooting


  • If you experience technical difficulty during a quiz, you may need to refresh your page or try an alternate browser.  Before you do so, its a good idea to take a screenshot of any answers on the current page, as they may not be saved.  If you encounter an error message, its a good idea to screenshot that too.

  • If you are completing a quiz with a time limit, but you can't see the timer, it might be that you've hidden your blocks.  Click 'show blocks' to un-hide the timer and navigation section of the quiz.  show blocks
