How do I give a student another chance to complete a quiz?
There are two ways to give a student another chance to complete a quiz:
- Method 1 -- You can change the number of attempts for the student;
- Method 2 -- You can click the "Retry" button next to a student's score in the gradebook.
Either way, it is IMPORTANT to avoid using the First Score setting under "Scored Attempt" when you're giving a student another chance to complete an assignment. If the "First" scoring setting for the assignment is selected and you give a student a second chance to complete that assignment then the student's new score will not report to the gradebook. Instead choose one of the other options, defined below.
Scored Attempt Menu:
- Last -- The score that counts will be the students’ final attempt.
- First -- The score that counts will be the students’ first attempt.
- Highest -- The score that counts will be the highest score of all attempts.
- Lowest -- The score that counts will be the lowest score of all attempts.
- Average -- The score that counts will be the average of all attempts.
- Total -- The score that counts is the sum of the scores for all attempts.
For more information on altering quiz settings, please refer to the help article Altering Quiz Settings on a Pre-Built Quiz.
Method 1 -- Change the number of attempts for the students
Edit the quiz
To alter the settings for a quiz, from your LaunchPad home page, hover your cursor over the More Options menu and select Edit.
Select the student
At the top of the page there will be a drop-down menu that says “Settings for.” If this is the first time you are editing a quiz for this individual, click the drop-down arrow and select “Add Individual.”
If you've already edited the quiz settings for this student in the past, then the student's name will appear in the drop-down list. Choose the student's name and skip down to "Select the Radio Button to change the time limit."
Enter the student's name
Begin typing the student's name in the window that appears. You will then be able to select the student from the drop-down list and click Add.
Select the student from the drop-down list
The student's name will now appear in the drop-down list.
Select Number of Attempts to change the number of attempts
Now that you've selected your student you can change the number of attempts by selecting "Number of Attempts" in the Settings.
Method 2 -- click the "Retry" button next to a student's score in the gradebook.
Click to grade
In the gradebook click on the grade for the student you want to give another chance. This will bring up the gradebook dialog box for that assignment for that student.
After you've clicked "Allow Retry" a blue retry arrow will appear next to the student's name in the gradebook to indicate they're permitted to take the quiz a second time. You must then notify the student to take the quiz again.
