(A) and then click edit
(C) next to attempts
. The assignment category (B) you selected when first creating the assignment will be the default selection. Click a different assignment category to edit that category's policies.
In the attempts tab (A), choose how many attempts you want your students to have on this assignment: one, two, three or unlimited (B).
If you’re allowing your students to attempt the assignment more than once, decide if they should start over
on each new attempt, or revise the previous attempt
means your students will complete each assignment attempt from beginning to end, regardless of what they had previously answered correctly.
Revise the previous attempt
means your students will return to the assignment and be able to edit what they had already submitted.
Lastly, decide whether you want to deduct a percentage from the scores of students who use additional attempts (D). You may want to apply a deduction to a quiz or an exam to encourage your students to prepare and do their best on their first attempts, while still having the option of attempting the assignment again if they need to.
Select compound the deduction for each attempt
to increase the deduction a student will receive when completing each additional attempt by the percent you entered.
- You may want to allow your students to attempt the assignment more than once if it is a homework or practice assignment, but only once if it is an exam.
