Options for Correcting Quizzes Found with an In Progress State

  • Finding Quizzes set to "In Progress"

    Often quizzes can be found in an “in progress” state.  This signifies that the student has some type of problem with the quiz. Outlined below are the basic options for correcting this situation.

    On the Quiz list page, select Grades from the drop-down menu.  The best way to find any quizzes set to the In Progress status is to search for those attempts in that state. Go to the Search For area of the quiz once you are on the Grade Quiz screen. If you see Hide Search Options, click on the text to expand the options.

    Go to the Restrict to: drop-down menu. Select User with attempts in progress from the drop-down menu. Once selected, it is very important to click on the search icon (magnifying glass) to the right of the Search For:  text box.  Once you find all of the attempts, you can choose to delete one or more attempts or submit the quiz attempt on behalf of the student(s).

    Deleting a Quiz Attempt for a Student

    If you determine to let the student retake the quiz, you will need to delete their quiz attempt. Just below the Restrict to label you will see a list of student with attempts “in progress.” To delete an attempt, simply check the box next to the student’s name and click on the trashcan icon. If you want to delete all attempts in this situation, check the box below the trashcan icon. This will select all students. When you click on the trashcan, all attempts will be delete. Now the student(s) can retake the quiz. You may need to set the student(s) for Special Access for them to retake the quiz.

    Submitting a Quiz on Behalf of a Student

    If you do not want the student(s) to retake the quiz, you can submit the quiz on the student’s behalf. Note next to the attempt number the indication that the quiz is set to the In Progress state. Click on the icon of the person to the right of the in progress link. You are asked to confirm that you will enter the quiz as that student.  Click Yes.

    The quiz is displayed as the student. You may see an Information box tell you to submit the quiz. Click OK.

    At the bottom of the page, there are two buttons: Save All Responses and Go to Submit Quiz.  If answers have been saved, click on Go to Submit Quiz (Only the answers saved will be graded upon submission.)
