How do I edit student answers in an assessment?

As a teacher, you can edit student item responses in a Mastery Connect assessment using the Mastery Connect Performance Grader. You can change student answers for document-based or item-based formative assessments.


  • As a teacher, you can edit student answers in benchmark assessments if an admin has enabled editing for teachers in the benchmark settings.
  • If you edit student answers before the student has completed the assessment, the student will not be able to take the assessment later.
