You may come across an error while taking a quiz where the Save & Next button does not appear on a question. Here are a few workarounds you can use to help you answer the questions and submit the quiz:
The Save and Next button may not appear on a certain question if your browser is zoomed in too far. In order to zoom out, press and hold the Control key (Command on a Mac) and press the minus (-) button. This will incrementally adjust the size of the text and images appearing within your browser. If this does not show the Save and Next button, move onto the next step.
