When taking a quiz in Accelerated Reader, the student clicks on [Yes] to confirm he wants to take the selected quiz but the quiz does not start. Instead, the browser displays, “You are currently taking a quiz. Please switch back to that window”. If the student logs back in and chooses to take a quiz again, a message in the browser tells the student he has previously started the quiz, but answered no questions yet.
When choosing to “Take a Test” in STAR Reading, nothing happens when the student clicks on the [Start] button.
Google Chrome’s inbuilt pop-up blocking settings are preventing Accelerated Reader Advantage from successfully displaying the Accelerated Reader Quiz or STAR Reading Test.
