Submit a Quiz on Behalf of a Student

To submit a quiz, students need to confirm multiple quiz submission screens in D2L. Occasionally a student may not confirm submission to submit a quiz. This means the quiz attempt is registered as having been started, but not completed. When this happens, the quiz is not graded, and the student is “locked out” of completing any additional attempts of that quiz until the original attempt is submitted. To remedy this situation, D2L enables an instructor to submit an in progress quiz attempt on behalf of a student.

  1. Select Activities and then Quizzes from the top navigation menu.
  2. Click the down caret next to the quiz and select Grade.
  3. Here you should see a list of students who have completed a quiz attempt.
  4. Above the list of students, find the Restrict to drop down menu. The default option is Users who have completed an attempt.
