Learn@UW - Quiz Scores for Students have Changed in Gradebook

This document explains how to resolve the problem where quiz scores for students have changed in the gradebook.

If the quiz scores for students who have already taken a quiz have changed in the gradebook, it is possible the number of points the quiz is worth was changed in the gradebook since the quiz period started. This scenario is likely if the percent values are off by a common factor or there are numerous scores of 100% with points exceeding the "out of" value.

For example, suppose a student scored 18 points on a 20 point quiz and earned 90%. If the grade item for that quiz is subsequently changed to be worth 25 points, that student's score will be changed to 18 out of 25 which is 72%.

You can do the following to correct all the scores in the gradebook for the quiz:

  1. Select Grade from the drop-down by the quiz in the list of quizzes.

  2. Select the Users tabbed page if not already selected.

  3. If the quiz is set to automatically send scores to the gradebook (you will not see an Export to Grades button), do the following:
    1. Un-select all the quiz attempts under the G (graded) column. 

    2. Press the Update button in the upper right corner.  (This marks the attempts as ungraded.)

    3. Select all the quiz attempts under the G (graded) column.

    4. Press the Update button in the lower left corner.  (This marks the attempts as re-graded and the correct scores are sent to the gradebook.)

  4. If the quiz is NOT set to automatically send scores to the gradebook, do the following:

    1. Select all the quiz attempts in the G (graded) column.

    2. Press the Update button in the lower left corner. (This marks the attempts as graded.)

    3. Press the Export to Grades button. (The correct scores are sent to the gradebook.)
