  1. select the "Quizzes" link located on the course nav bar
  2. select the “Manage Quizzes” area tab
  3. select the "action" carrot associated with the quiz to get to the contextual drop menu
  4. select the "Grade" option

In the Grade area, select the checkbox associated with the attempt (or multiple attempts) that need reset and then select the trashcan icon.

A dialogue box pops up which says: "Reset Attempt: This operation will permanently delete all data associated with these attempts of the quiz. Are you sure that you want to proceed?" - respond "Yes" or "No." Selecting "Yes" resets the quiz.

A "Deleted Successfully" dialogue box will appear and then disappear in the lower right of the browser.

Note: A deleted (reset) attempt is gone for good and can NOT be retrieved! Advised: make sure you are resetting the correct quiz or quizzes before hitting the trash can.

  2. select the “Manage Quizzes” area tab
  3. select the "action" carrot associated with the quiz to get to the contextual drop menu
