Allow Students to Retake Only Incorrectly Answered Quiz Questions

In the Quiz tool, you can now let students retake a quiz showing only the questions they previously answered incorrectly.

  1. Navigate to Activities > Quizzes.
  2. Create a new quiz or find the quiz you want to modify. Select the down-arrow after its name to open the context menu.
  3. Select Edit.
  4. Select the quiz Assessment tab.
  5. In the Attempts menu, select at least 2.
  6. Click the Apply button.
  7. Check the Retake Incorrect Questions Only box.
  8. Save the quiz.

Note that these questions are shown in the same order as the initial attempt, even for quizzes with an initially random question pool. This subsequent attempt can only increase a student’s previous score. If you want to give students partial credit for questions that were not answered correctly on the first attempt, you can select Average in the Overall Grade Calculation menu.
