As the creator of a quiz you have the option of giving your learners the opportunity of re-attempting a quiz. You also have the ability to control how the learner views this re-attempt. 

Quiz settings can be configured either directly from the course pathway, or from within the quiz itself. From the course pathway, simply hover over your quiz, and click on the settings button. 

If you're on the quiz edit screen, simply choose the settings button from button group just above the quiz questions.

Set the number of attempts

By default, the number of re-attempts on a quiz is set to unlimited. To change this, uncheck the unlimited checkbox and use the number stepper to choose the number of re-attempts you'd like your learner to have. 

Set what to do on re-attempts

There are 2 options you can choose from for re-attempts. 

  1. Show only questions marked 'incorrect' on previous attempt
    Selecting this option will only show the learner those answers that they got wrong on the previous attempt. They will not see any answers that they got correct the first time.
  2. Show correct responses from previous attempt                                                         Selecting this option will not only show the learner which questions they got correct on their previous attempt, it will also preselect the correct answer during their reattempt.

Selecting an attempt scheme

The attempt scheme refers to the attempt that will be used to grade the Quiz. You have the option of either using the attempt with the Highest Grade, or the Latest Attempt. By default, the latest attempt is selected
