Quizzes - Managing Submitted Quiz Attempts
Last modified on 20 June 2023 12:56 PM
Although most question types will be graded automatically, some work may need to be done to grade essay questions or repair issue with questions and quiz attempts.
After your students have completed a quiz, if you find that it contained an unfair question (e.g., the answer was coded wrong, the question was too ambiguous, etc.) you can either:
In both cases, all quiz attempts must be re-graded (see below) to update student quiz scores to reflect any changes you have made to question values or correct answers.
Changes to CLOZE questions that have existing student attempts can break questions within existing attempts and for future quizzes. The recommended process for repairing CLOZE question scores is to zero the question score. If you are attempting to edit questions, we recommend that you make changes using the HTML text editor instead of the RTF editor in eClass to ensure that you do not accidentally inject new formats or behaviours into the Cloze question you are modifying.
In some cases, you may want to entirely remove quiz attempts (for example in cases of incomplete attempts owing to computer failure, illness, or if you have had colleagues or your Demo student submit attempts in testing). To delete quiz attempts:
In some rare cases, student quiz attempts may get stuck in an 'In progress' or 'Never submitted' state. If an attempt such as this has saved answers for the student that you want to save and grade, you can force submit the attempt:
If an attempt has been submitted, and if you require a student to continue working on the same attempt, it is possible to add an override for the particular student and then change the quiz behaviour so that they can build on their last attempt.
See the article Adding User Overrides to Quizzes for more information.
