3.Log into Google Classroom with the Email and Password given by your School or Institution.

4.Take the test from the browser and you will find it works just fine. Also if you try opening the Test again from Google Classroom App it should now work. I explain why below.

Cause of the Error

The error happens because in Google Classroom when a Quiz is set its uses Google Forms for the test. In the App on your phone or Tablet when you click on the link to the Quiz it may seem as if you are still in the Google Classroom App but it tries to leave the App and open a browser to access the Google Forms for the test or Quiz.

You see the error as you are most likely not logged in with your Schools email in the browser window and you get the Permission error.

As a extra solution or workaround you can take the test from a Laptop or desktop and you should not have the problem.

Still having Issues?

If you are still having issues the problem might be much simpler. Try to update your Tablet or phone. Make sure chrome browser is updated to the latest version.

Clear the cache or uninstall and reinstall your chrome browser. Also you may have to remove extra Google accounts in case you have multiple logged in on one device.If you have multiple browsers installed make sure that the default is chrome or that the link is not opening up in another browser as Google tools work best with its own Apps.
