Clear attempts and add exceptions

When special circumstances arise, you have two options to remedy submission issues. You can clear a test attempt or add an assessment exception.

Clear an attempt

If you choose, you can clear a student's test attempt. The submission is cleared from the gradebook and the student can retake the test.

Assessment exceptions

You can give an individual student an exception on a specific test. An exception includes additional attempts or extended access, even if the test is hidden from other students. An exception overrides the two settings applied to everyone else for only that specific test.
