How do I update a quiz question that had an incorrect answer designated as the correct answer after students have already received the question on a quiz? How do I update the scores for that question?

These instructions assume you have already logged in to D2L and entered the course in which you wish to work.

Editing a quiz question will not update scores for students who have already answered that question on a quiz. Editing the question creates a new question; the incorrect question will still exist on the students quiz attempts. Update how the original question is scored rather than editing the question.

Note-If you have already edited the question- the original version that you will have to re-score is located at the bottom of the questions list in step 7b.

  1. Click on "Assessment" in the navigation bar.
  2. Select "Quizzes" from the menu that opens.
  3. Locate the quiz for which you wish to update how a question is scored.
  4. Click the down arrow next to the name of the quiz.
  5. Select "Grade" from the menu that opens.
  6. The default view is of users completed "attempts". Click to the "questions" tab.
  7. You have three options to (re)grade questions on the quiz:
  • If you want to see each instance of how the question was answered by the individual students who received the question:
    1. Fill in the bubble for "Grade Individual Responses"
    2. Click directly on the question you want to (re)grade
    3. You will see a single student's answer to the question. Place a new score for the question in the score field if needed.
    4. Click "Save and Continue" to update that student's score and review the next students answer to the question.
    5. Repeat until all student's answers have been reviewed.

  • If you want to give points to all students regardless of how they answered the question:
    1. Fill in the bubble for "Update All Attempts".
    2. Click directly on the question you want to (re)grade
    3. Fill in the bubble for "Give to all attempts (  ) points
    4. Fill in a point value
    5. Click Save

  • If you want to give points to each student who selected a specific answer on the question:
    1. Fill in the bubble for "Update All Attempts".
    2. Click directly on the question you want to (re)grade
    3. Fill in the bubble for "Give to attempts with answer (  ) (  ) points"
    4. Select the correct answer
    5. Fill in a point value for that correct answer
    6. Click Save
