Please note: Do not assign a quiz to a class until you have completely built and finalized the quiz. Assigning a quiz to a class freezes the current version of the quiz for that class. Any later changes you make will not apply to that class's assigned version. If you want to apply later changes to a class you will need to unassign and then reassign the quiz to the class.
