You'll have the option to customize the subject and message of the email that is sent to students.
Once you hit 'Send' the emails will be immediately sent to students, but they won't be able to access their assessment until the 'Activation time' has passed.
Emailing selected students only
You may want to ensure only selected students are sent their online assessment link, or you may need to re-send the assessment link to selected students.
To do this, select the students from the table first, then click the 'Email Students(s) Online Assessment' button. Choose whether you want to customize the email and click 'Send' when you're ready
