Regrading a Quiz in Canvas

As an instructor,  a great deal of time and effort is placed into creating challenging yet purposeful quiz questions. In terms of grading, multiple answer, multiple choice, and true/false are some of the most efficient question types; however, if students at large have selected the wrong answers for a question or two, it might be time to consider the Canvas re-grade function.

With the regrade function, multiple answer, multiple choice, and true/false questions can be edited after the quiz has already been administered and taken so that student grades are recalculated to reflect the most up-to-date scores.

Regrade Options

To begin editing, select the quizzes tab in the course navigation:

Find the quiz you'd like to edit and select the three dots to the right. Once selected, choose the edit option:

Select the questions tab, and then find the question you'd like to edit by selecting the pencil icon:
