Lockdown browser doesn't show available quizzes in D2L Brightspace

My quiz isn't showing up under the lockdown browser tab in D2L. I'm getting a message that says "There are no deployed tests in this course."


For sites using D2L Brightspace, when one or more quizzes do not show in the LockDown Browser Dashboard, it is typically due to a "null" or an empty value in the D2L "Message" field. This field permits you to have a message presented to students upon test submission. 


This is a sporadic issue with D2L web services and might occur after a course copy. The quickest way to resolve the problem is to enter some text (even a blank space using the space key) in the "Message" field and save the quiz again.  If all quizzes in the course have this same problem, you will likely see this message when opening the LockDown Browser Dashboard:

"There are no deployed tests in this course."


To resolve this, add a message in the Submission View field:


  1. Navigate to the course.
  2. Click Assessments then quizzes.
  3. Click Edit Quiz->Submissions Views tab->Default View->View Properties.
  4. In the Message text editor box, type a message (ex: "Message").
