I created a new test for a single student, but it took all the grades away from the old students. I found copies of the grades, but I want o restore them. How?
Hi Jonathan Bradley Welcome to the Canvas Community! I just helped one of our own faculty members with this very issue a couple of days ago. When assigning the quiz to the single student, such as what is covered here in the documentation, you removed the other students in the class to do so. (It would have said "Everyone" in the box where the one student's name now appears.)
Edit the quiz, and at the very bottom where the due dates and the one student's name is you will see a button labelled +ADD. (It's also shown in some of the screen captures in that online guide I linked to.) Click that button, and by default the Assign to field should be populated with "Everyone Else." You are, therefore, essentially re-adding in everyone else for the quiz.
However, since students have already taken that very same quiz, their grades should automatically re-populate in the quiz column for that quiz once you save it again. Other than the above, you will NOT have to re-enter the grades for that quiz, if the above situation works....which, as I said, it should since it has every time I've had people do it.
I hope this helps, Jonathan!
