Deleting either a submitted quiz or an "in progress" quiz is one option you have for allowing a student to retake their assessment.  The two sections below cover the differences in the steps necessary if you are deleting a quiz that has already been submitted versus a quiz that is still in progress.

Deleting a submitted quiz

  1. On the Quizzes page in your course, click the chevron next to the title of the exam in which you would like to delete an attempt. From the menu that opens, choose Grade.

     
  2. The page you are brought to displays all students who have completed and submitted an attempt. To remove one or more of these items, you can either check the box to the left of an individual quiz attempt to select that single item, or you can check the box to the left of a student's name to select all attempts from that student. Once you have selected all attempts that you would like to delete, click the Reset button above the attempt listing.

Deleting an "In Progress" quiz

  1. On the Quizzes page in your course, click the chevron next to the title of the exam in which you would like to delete an attempt. From the menu that opens, choose Grade.

     
  2. The page you are brought to will display all students who have completed and submitted an attempt. If you do not see your student's name on that list, it means that they have not submitted their attempt yet.  To change your search parameters so you can see their attempt, click Show Search Options.

     
  3. When the search options load, expand the drop-down menu labeled "Restrict To." Select either All users to see a full listing of the students in your class, or Users with attempts in progress to show only those students who have started but not yet submitted their quiz. When you have made your selection, click the magnifying glass icon in the search box. If you are looking for one specific student, you can enter that student's name into the search box before clicking the magnifying glass.

     
  4. After clicking the magnifying glass to run your search with the new parameters, scroll down to view the search results. Check the box to the left each each attempt you would like to delete, then click the Reset button above the attempts listing. After having done that, click Clear Search to reset the search parameters and return to a listing of all students who have completed and submitted an attempt.
