Assessment Types in the Tests and Quizzes area limits the settings for an assessment to reduce instructor confusion.  Once an assessment type is selected for an assessment it can not be changed.  A new assessment would need to be created so the option can be available again.  

Instructors can create their own types.

It's recommended that instructors who are unsure about which assessment type to select should select the Default (or do not specify) which does not have any limitations.
