I don’t want my players taking competition quizzes until a certain date. Can coaches set their own start date?

To set a later start date for your teams, go to the “Profile” tab of the Coach’s Corner. At the bottom of the profile is a box marked “Coach Competition Start Date”

Where can I find the Capstone Quiz?

The Capstone quiz can be found in the “My Quizzes” section of the Player’s Corner. Since it is a post-test it is only available once the player has completed all five Category Quizzes.

If the Capstone Quiz does not appear in the “My Quizzes” area once the Category Quizzes are complete, the player should refresh the page; if it does not appear after 20 minutes, the player should log out and log back in.

If the Capstone Quiz still does not appear, contact support for assistance.
