You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I regrade a quiz question in New Quizzes?

Regrading only applies to completed submissions. If all students will be affected by the regrade, please wait for all submissions before regrading.

Regrading is not available for Essay or File Upload questions. Only point values can be changed for Categorization questions; correct answers cannot be changed for this question type.
