FAQ

Q. As an instructor, you have created a quiz and some learners have already taken the quiz. Later, you realised that one of the answers needs to be changed. What will happen to the results of the learners who have already taken the quiz if the answer is changed?

A. changing questions answer will affect the results of learners who have already attempted the quiz. However, changing the option's text won't affect student's result. Let us understand this with an example.

Scenario 1: Learners' answer will be considered as incorrect if the option of a question get changed altogether.

For example, you have created a question and set the correct answer as option 2 and the learners have also selected this option at the time of quiz submission. In case, you change the correct answer of this question from option 2 to option 1 then learner(s) who have already made an attempt, their answer will be marked as incorrect.

 

Scenario 2: Learners' answer will still be considered as correct if you are going to update only option's text.

Q. What would be the impact to those who have attempted the quiz, if the number of options to the questions is changed? For instance, there were originally 5 options (a,b,c,d,e) but now we want to remove option e, where option e is an incorrect option.

A. As we already know that "option E" is an incorrect option, hence removing an incorrect option from a particular question will not have any impact on the score obtained by the learners for that particular question, i.e. the learners' who have already answered that particular question with the "option E", their submitted option has already been considered as wrong and the system won't allot any score.

However, you may increase the number of maximum attempts limit (after removing an incorrect option) so that learners who have already answered that question with the "option E", can make one more attempt and select different option to get that question right.

We strongly recommend not to change them once one or more students have made submissions.
