Correcting Quiz Questions and Scores

If a mistake has been found in a quiz that has already been administered, it is possible to correct the scoring for that quiz. Scoring can be changed on the incorrect question and all student grading on that specific question can be automatically corrected. This is a two-stage procedure: First, the question gets regraded, and then the question is corrected in the quiz question library so that it will be correct for future use. This tutorial covers the steps necessary to both regrade the incorrect question and correct the question in the Question Library.

 

Regrading a Quiz Question

First, to access the Quiz tool, from your course navbar, click Tools and select Quizzes.

 

Select Quizzes from the course navbar.

 

To the right of the desired quiz name, click the arrow and select Grade from the dropdown menu. 

 

Select Grade from the dropdown menu of the desired quiz.

 

Click the Questions tab.

 

Click on the Update All Attempts radio button. This insures that once you make your changes to the question, the grades of all students will be adjusted accordingly. 

 

From the list of questions, select the one(s) you wish to edit.

 

Select the Question tab. Select Update All Attempts. Select the Question to Edit.

 

Under the Grade section, select from the following two options:

  • Give all students the same number of points for the question.
  • Give the students who selected a specific answer the desired number of points.

For either option, you may type an explanation in the Comment field.
