Updating a Canvas quiz
When your students start a quiz, their attempt is tied to the version of the quiz at the time they started. If you make any updates to the quiz after a student after a student begins taking the quiz, those updates will not be available to the student during their current attempt. We recommend not publishing a quiz or making it available to students until all changes have been made. However, if you need to make changes while a student is currently taking the quiz, the student must end their current attempt and you need to moderate the quiz and give them another attempt with the updated quiz.
To moderate the quiz, click the Moderate This Quiz link. On the Moderate Quiz page, you can give the student an extra attempt.
Contact the student who is currently taking the quiz and ask them to submit the quiz . If they haven't finished the quiz, they will need to confirm their incomplete submission .
To prevent students from accessing quizzes before they are complete, you can:
- Leave the quiz unpublished in the course until complete, or place the quiz in an unpublished module.
- Use availability dates in quiz settings to prevent students from accessing the quiz until a specific date.
