There could be a variety of reasons for this:
Make sure that you have set the quiz for student access.
You really can't, in most test situations there is a potential for cheating. To help control this possibility you could try to avoid quizzes that consist solely of multiple-choice questions and text book related questions and utilize formats such as "Paragraph".
You could use the Quiz Settings section and select to have the quiz timed, questions released one at a time or both. You can also choose to have the quiz proctored in a lab setting.
Questions need to be in a format that the WebCT Question Database can read, then uploaded and imported into the Quiz/Survey Question Database.
You can also use Respondus, from Respondus.com which allows for assessment creation offline then uploads directly to your WebCT account, creating the necesary Category and links. Currently UH has a license for Respondus which is available for all UH faculty and staff.
You can download your own copy of Respondus from <http://www.hawaii.edu/talent/respondus.html> NOTE: you need a UHUNIX name and password in order to download.
There are no easy answers, but you might consider exploring other ways to assess learners, keeping most quizzes and tests for student self-assessment and spot-checks throughout your course.
