Q. How to reset (clear) a test (assignment) attempt

Answer

For Blackboard test/assignment:

It is recommended that the Force Completion option is NOT selected. Instructors should check that the Force Completion option is NOT selected on Tests which have been migrated each year.

If the Force Completion has been enabled and students encounter a problem with their test – for whatever reason – you will need to reset the student’s attempt so that they can take the test again.

Note: 
It is critical to check the student’s attempt before resetting. They may have answered all questions before

encountering problems. If this is the case academic staff can manually mark and submit the student’s

attempt via the Grade Centre.

View and Clear Attempt

From within the module’s Control Panel, select the Grade Centre link.:

  1. Find the column for the test in the Grade Centre and match it to the row with the student who encountered problems.
  2. Roll-over the Grade Centre cell where the column and row meet and select the down-arrow contextual menu that appears.
  3. From the drop-down menu, select View Grade Details

  4. After clicking View Grade Details, a new window will open. Click on the Clear Attempt button on the far right of the line. The attempt will be removed and there will be no record of the attempt at all.  and the student will be able to retake the test. 
  5. You can clear specific attempts, allowing a student to retake a test or redo an assignment. For example, if a student encountered technical problems and only partially completed a test, clear the grade to allow a retake. If you clear a grade that has a previous attempt, the previous attempt becomes the current grade.The Ignore Attempt function allows you to not include the attempt’s score in a student’s grade calculations. The submission will not count against the maximum number
    of attempts. 

    Select the Clear Attempt button
  6. When prompted, select the OK button to clear the attempt.

Note:
If you enabled multiple attempts on an test, there are several options under Clear Attempts. You can select

from: Last Attempt, First Attempt, Highest Scored Attempt, Lowest Scored Attempt, Specify Date and

All Attempts.

For Turnitin submission:

 From within the module’s Control Panel:

  1. Select the Grade Centre link.
  2. Find the column for the assignment in the Grade Centre and match it to the row with the student who encountered problems.
  3. Roll-over the Grade Centre cell where the column and row meet and select the down-arrow contextual menu that appears.
  4. From the drop-down menu, select “Attempt xx/xx/year”. 
  5. In “Assignment information” section you will see “Clear Attempt” button, once you click on it, it will clear the submission completely.
