Once an assessment has been assigned, you can change any of the settings made when the assessment was initially assigned, such as due dates, time limits, or availability windows.

  • Step 1: Navigate to your Assessments module.

  • Step 2: Select your Assigned page.

  • Step 3: Select the class the assessment was assigned to. Note - if you assigned to more than one class at the same time, you will need to adjust the settings in each class. Settings changed for one class will not apply to the others.

  • Step 4: Select the ellipsis to the right of the desired assessment.

  • Step 5: Select Edit.

  • Step 6: Adjust any desired settings.

Auto-Score Settings

Only applicable to Standards Based Grading Scale (Non-Points) Assessments.

❗ If you edit this setting after the assessment has been assigned, you will receive a message explaining that this only applies to future scores, not scores already collected.


What Happens when the Settings are Changed?


Due Dates:

  • If students don't turn in an assignment by the due date, it is marked missing in the Gradebook. If the due date is extended, it will automatically adjust the missing status.

Start Date:

  • If a start date is not initially assigned, but later added, the assessment will be removed from the students' list until that start date has approached.

Availability Windows:

  • Adding or extending availability windows is possible, but must be done prior to the last window expiring in order for the changes to take effect. This is because assessments will auto-submit when the last availability window expires. Once that has happened, changing availability windows will have no effect on the assessments since they've already been submitted.

Instructions:

  • Students will see edits to instructions when they start the assessment.

Include Score in Final Grade:

  • This setting can be toggled on or off before, during, or after the students have taken the assessment. It will not impact the way the student takes the assessment, it simply will add or remove the score from the calculation of their final grade.

Allow Post Grading Review:

  • This setting can be toggled on or off before, during, or after the students have taken the assessment. On will allow them to view their assessment results; Off will lock the assessment for their viewing after it's been graded.

Lockdown Browser

  • This setting can be toggled on or off before, during, or after the students have taken the assessment. On will enable the Lockdown Browser; Off will disable the Lockdown Browser. Note - The student must have the Respondus lockdown browser installed on their device in order to utilize this feature.

Randomizing Questions:

  • You can change this setting even after students have started the assessment. In order for the changes to take effect for students that are currently working on the assessment, the student will have to save/exit the assessment and re-enter.

Allow Student Annotation:

  • You can change this setting even after students have started the assessment. In order for the changes to take effect for students that are currently working on the assessment, the student will have to save/exit the assessment and re-enter.

Time Limit:

  • If a time limit is added or changed while students are taking the assessment, students will have to save/exit and re-enter the assessment for the new time limit to take affect. It will automatically adjust to the new time limit by deducting the amount of time they've already spent in the assessment.

Allow Multiple Attempts:

  • This setting can be toggled on or off before, during, or after the student submits the assessment. If this setting is toggled on after the assessment has been graded, the students will be able to take the assessment again, but it will overwrite their previous scores.

Allow graded assessments with the status of "Missing" to be submitted:

  • Students can work on and submit an assessment that has been graded and marked "Missing." On by default. Off will disable the ability for students to return to work on their assessment after the teacher has graded the assessment and marked it "Missing."

Assigned as Locked Assessment

  • This setting is determined by your administrator - this is only available on assessments that were assigned to your class from an administrator account. If this box is checked, that means the data from this assessment will aggregate in Assessment Analytics. You aren't able to edit this setting.

Auto-Score Settings:

This section only applies to advanced assessments that utilize Standards Based Grading Scales (Non-Points). With this feature, you have the ability to set the default score a student receives for auto-graded questions.

  • This feature is assessment wide, not per individual question. This means that the level selected for Correct Answer and Incorrect Answer will be applied to all questions within the assessment.

  • A question is considered "correct" if ALL portions of the individual question are correct. Mid-level scale labels will not apply to partial correct answers. Questions are considered fully Correct or Incorrect.

➡️ Example: If partial credit is being applied and a student gets 3 out of 5 parts correct, they will be given the status of "Incorrect Answer".

❗ If you edit this setting after the assessment has been assigned, you will receive a message explaining that this only applies to future scores, not scores already collected.
