    Regrade a Quiz

    Edit questions used in a graded quiz or throw out a question.

    There may be a time when students have completed a quiz/exam and you have discovered a problem with a question in the exam or the exam total points. Possible scenarios might be:

    • Decide to throw out a poor question and not count it.
    • Discover the answer specified as correct in the quiz question is actually wrong. You want to correct the error and regrade the exam.
    • Discover that a short-answer question is not automatically grading the answer correctly because some students have used capital letters while others have not.
    • Missed changing the value of a question from the Moodle default of 1 pt and you want that question to be worth more points.
    • Want the quiz total score to be X points instead of the Y points as it was originally set.

    Moodle will allow you to make these types of changes to a quiz question or exam and then run a re-grading of the exam. You will get a warning that the quiz already has attempts, but you can still change the value of the questions or quiz and the correct choice.

    Warning

    Do not delete any questions or modify the number of choices within a question once the quiz has been taken. Also, if you change the right answer after a Quiz has been taken, some students may be counted wrong that were initially right.
