This action relates to the 'Plan' step for Quiz. If, before a quiz opens, you discover that a question requires editing or correction, it can be easily edited. Enter the Question bank and locate the relevant question,
then select the edit cog besides it. After making the required changes, click Save changes.
If you discover the error after student access has commenced, it is possible to regrade your quiz. When a quiz question is altered, all instances of that question will be altered (ie if the question is used in another quiz it will also be altered).
Students will not be notified of the changes made.
After the quiz opens
There are two steps to this process - edit the quiz question/s and regrade the quiz.
1. Edit the quiz question/s
To regrade a quiz attempt (once it has already opened and students have attempted it), you will first need to edit the quiz question/s that needs changing. You can either edit the question/s (change mark, add comment) for all students OR for selected students.
Edit a quiz question for all students
Click on the link for the quiz you have created
Click the Edit quiz link in the Administration block
Click on cog to edit the question
Make changes, click Save changes
Edit a quiz question for selected students
Click on the quiz, then Quiz administration > Results > Grades
Choose the student and question in the Grades screen (scroll down) and click on the mark link (in the example below, it is 0.25)
In the next screen, scroll down and click on the Make comment or override mark link
Add a comment or change the mark
2. Regrade the quiz
How you regrade the quiz is different depending on whether it has random questions or not.
Quiz with no random questions
If you change the mark for a question to 0, you don't need to regrade.
If you adjust an answer (eg in an MCQ), you will need to regrade. You cannot change the question type (eg in an MCQ, you will need to leave it at one answer only, and make two answers
correct, both worth 100%, rather than change the MCQ to multiple answers allowed).
Click on the quiz
Click Attempts at the bottom of the screen
Next to Show only attempts tick the box 'that have been regraded/are marked as needed regrading'
Click Dry run a full regrade (to see the outcome before you actually regrade – it is not a required step)
Click on the Continue button once the 'Regrade completed successfully' screen has appeared
Once completed, the attempts that need regrading will appear in the regrade column with 'Needed' appearing
Click on the 'Regrade attempts marked as needed regrading' button
Click 'Continue' button once Regrade completed successfully appears
To complete the process click Regrade all
Click Continue button once 'Regrade completed successfully' appears. You will now notice that the regrade column disappears, indicating that your quiz has been regraded
Quiz with random questions
If you change the mark for a
question to 0, you don't need to regrade.
If you need to remark one question you will need to identify which students were given the
question, as that particular question could have occurred in any order (eg
question 1 for some students but question 4 for others).
Example: If you have a randomised quiz of 20 questions, the problem
question could be given in any of the 20 possible positions within the quiz.
