How can I retract, regrade, and republish a test?
Updated on Sep 13, 2021
Common reasons for editing a published test include:
- Correcting typographical, spelling, or grammatical errors in question or answer text
- Correcting point value errors for questions
- Changing correct answer specifications
Published assessments can be modified even if students have already taken the test or are in the process of taking the test.
If planning to edit a published assessment that is still available to students, you should notify your students, as the test will be temporarily unavailable.
In cases when you are changing the point values or correcting an answer specification, it is highly recommended that you wait to edit the test until all students have submitted their test attempts.
If making textual changes that do not alter the meaning of questions or answers, e.g., correcting typographical errors, you only need to Republish the test after making the changes.
