Allowing Re-Submissions on Quizzes

Resubmissions can be granted within the quiz, by either deleting the original submission (after checking the quiz log), or if you want to keep the initial attempt you can allow your student another attempt of the quiz via Special Access.

Allowing for extensions on a quiz is covered in the companion guide Setting Extensions on Quizzes .


The Manage Quizzes page ( Deletion method)

  1. Re-submissions on quizzes 1Pull down the action arrow to the right of the quiz name and select Grade.

The Quiz page

  1. Re-submissions on quizzes 2By default it will only show users who have completed an attempt.
    • use the Restrict To selector to change this.
  2. Select one or more attempts from the list by ticking the check boxes
  3. Click the rubbish bin icon
    • you will be asked to confirm by clicking yes.

The student's submitted attempt has now been deleted, and they can re-take the quiz according to the original restrictions set.

Note: Once deleted any details regarding this attempt are lost. To view the attempt you can press on the attempt to view answered questions. The Quiz log shows you the time the student entered and saved any questions. This can assist you in deciding if the student had internet issues and needs to resit the quiz.


If you prefer to keep the original attempt as a record, you can instead allow the student a further attempt at the quiz.
