Q1: I have attempted a quiz which has auto evaluated questions, but I can not see the score obtained in that quiz. Where can I view the quiz score?

A: This is possible if your instructor has enabled "View score to the learners when score are published" setting for a quiz. Due to this reason, you may not  see the quiz score instantly. You can see the quiz score once your instructor publish it.

Q2: I received a bulletin board notification confirming that the score has been published. However, when I accessed my quiz, I don't see any score. How can I view the score?

A: You may not see the quiz score, in case, if your instructor has unpublished the quiz score. And you will only see the score once the score are published again.

Q3: I received a bulletin board notification confirming that the feedback has been published. But, when I accessed the view submission page of the quiz, there was no feedback comments. How can I view instructor's feedback comment added to my submission?

A: If your instructor has unpublished the comment then you will not see the comment on the view submission page of the quiz until the comments are published again.

Q4: I am trying to retake a quiz, but unable to do so. What am I doing wrong?

A: System will not allow you to retake a quiz if any of your previous attempt has been graded and score are published by your instructor.

Let us understand this in detail:

An instructor has created a quiz and allowed learners to make multiple attempts (for example, learner can make to up to 5 attempts).

Now, let's assume, you made first three attempts and yet has chance to make another two attempts. In the meantime, your instructor has graded any one of your previous attempts and published its score. In this scenario, you will not be able to retake the quiz even when the maximum number of attempts value is not yet reached. Because, once score are published, you can not retake the quiz. To make another attempt, you may request your instructor to unpublish your score. This way, you will be allowed to retake the quiz.
