When creating a test to be released on a future date, with Edit Mode On, the instructor will see a message that says Availability: Item is hidden from students. It will be available after...
However, if you click the drop down arrow to the right of the Test and choose Edit the Test Options, and on the next page, you add a Test Availability Exception, and click Submit, the aforementioned message no longer appears and the test looks available to students from the instructor side but is not.
After adding a Test Availability Exception, this is how the test looks from the instructor side with Edit Mode On.
Use Student Preview to verify your test is not available to students.
This is a software defect and a known issue that will be fixed in a future release.
