Do students have to enter all of their answers for each extra attempt on a Quiz?

Jump to solution

I am using Quizzes in Canvas for the purpose of entering answers for homework. I'm giving my students multiple attempts, but Canvas has them re-enter all of their answers each time they attempt the quiz again. Is there a way that they can only change their answers on the questions that they pick?

Hi  @geastburn  Welcome  to Canvas and the Canvas Community!

Unfortunately this is not possible in Canvas at this time. However, this might be a possibility with the new Quizzes LTI coming soon to a Canvas installation near you! You can learn more at Priority: Quizzes.Next

Also, you may want to check out this feature idea which is currently open for voting, and is on the Product Team's radar at https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/4709-carry-forward-correct-answers-on-quiz-multiple-attempts 

I hope this helps,

Kelley

I use quizzes in the same way, with lots of essay questions.  I encourage students to open two browser windows, one with the old quiz and one with the retake.  They can cut and paste anything they don't want to change.
