We highly recommend you review Homework Assignment Requirements and Best Practices before beginning to create Homework Assignments.

Time limit, number of attempts, and review settings can be edited in three ways:

 

Note: The steps in this article will help you edit question settings, not the question itself. For help editing a question please view the help article How do I edit a Homework activity question?.


Warning: Edits to the questions or question settings in a Homework activity cannot be made after a student has submitted an attempt.

This warning does not pertain to new titles released in Fall of 2017 or later, including:
  • Moore, Introduction to the Practice of Statistics, 9e
  • Moore, Statistics: Concepts and Controversies, 9e
  • Sowder, Reconceptualizing Mathematics, 3e


Once a student has submitted an attempt in a Homework assignment, you will be unable to make edits to questions and question settings for that assignment. This includes when you take the Homework assignment as a student in View as Student mode. For this reason, we are recommending a three-course approach as outlined in the help article How can I review Homework activities as a student?. If you need a question edited after the assignment has been locked, contact tech support with the details, and the edit will be made for you. 

 


Click on the image to zoom in.

 

Open the Homework assignment

On the LaunchPad home page, click on the Homework assignment to open it.

 

 

Click the checkboxes next to multiple questions that you want to edit

Note: If you do not see check boxes next to the questions, you may be using a newer version of LaunchPad. Jump to For newer LaunchPads.

 

Click "Edit question settings"

Note: Do not click Edit next to the question or Edit questions (outlined in black below). These options are there if you want to edit the text of the question and not the question settings.


 

Edit the settings from the "Edit Question Settings" screen

You can change the following settings on a question by question basis:

  • Points possible
  • Number of attempts per question
  • Which attempt submitted by a student will report to the gradebook as part of his/her final score
  • Time limit to answer each question
  • Feedback review settings


Note: You can only edit a setting option if it matches for all selected questions. If a setting option does not match for all selected questions, then that field will be grayed out and you will be unable to edit the setting.


Be sure to click Save when you're done editing the settings.


 

View edited settings

From the activity information page you can now see the updated question settings.

The settings for all the other questions remain the same.


For newer LaunchPads

If you are using a new title released in Fall of 2017 or later, you will follow slightly different instructions to edit your Homework question settings. These titles include:
  • Moore, Introduction to the Practice of Statistics, 9e
  • Moore, Statistics: Concepts and Controversies, 9e
  • Sowder, Reconceptualizing Mathematics, 3e


Edit your Homework assignment

Click the Edit button at the top right of your Homework assignment.


Select question to edit

You will be taken to the Review & Modify tab. Check the boxes for the questions you want to edit, then click Edit Question Settings.


Edit the settings from the "Edit Question Settings" screen

You can change the following settings on a question by question basis:

  • Points possible
  • Number of attempts per question
  • Which attempt submitted by a student will report to the gradebook as part of his/her final score
  • Time limit to answer each question
  • Feedback review settings


Note: You can only edit a setting option if it matches for all selected questions. If a setting option does not match for all selected questions, then that field will be grayed out and you will be unable to edit the setting.

Be sure to click Save when you're done editing the settings.



View edited settings

The only setting you will be able to view after saving is the points possible per question. This number is at the upper left of each question. To view all other settings, you must edit the settings for the questions again and view the settings in the Edit Question Settings window.
