How do I correct scores for revised quiz questions in a D2L quiz?

with No Comments

It happens to everyone who uses online quizzes eventually—you find out that wrong answer option was marked as correct for one of the questions on your quiz after students have taken it. Now you’ll need to correct your students’ quiz scores.

Sometimes this has to be done manually, but in some cases, D2L provides a shortcut for making corrections. First, you’ll need to correct the answer to the question. Then, you’ll need to re-grade the quiz question. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Go to the quiz, click the drop-down arrow to the right of its name, then select Grade.
  2. Click the Questions tab at the top of the page.
  3. Check the Update All Attempts radial button.
  4. Click on the question that you just modified. To find it, you’ll need to scroll down to the bottom of the list of questions.
  5. Give to all attempts with answer option

    Choose the Give to attempts with answer option on the “Grading Type” list, then set new values for your answer options.

  6. Choose the number of the answer option that was incorrectly marked as wrong on the drop-down menu, then enter 0 in the “points” text box.
  7. Choose the number of the answer that is now correct on the drop-down menu, then enter the point value for that questions in the “points” text box.
  8. Click Save when you’re done re-assigning points to the question’s answer options.
  9. You will be asked “Are you sure that you want to change the grade values for these attempts?” via a pop-up window. Click Yes.
  10. Click the Go Back to the Questions button to return to the main Grade Quiz page.
  11. Click the Users tab at the top of the page.
  12. Select/unselect as graded icon

    Click the Select/unselect as graded icon on the right side of the table’s header row twice, first to de-select, then to re-select the “Published” select boxes for all students.

  13. Click the Save and Close button at the bottom of the page to re-save the new quiz scores to the Grades area.

This fix only works well for specific question types, mainly true/false and multiple choice. Other types of questions will need to be manually re-graded.
