Regrade an assignment

Once you've determined that a question requires editing and you've modified it from the Content Repository, you can then initiate assignment regrading such that your students' existing responses are compared to an updated version of the question.

TIP: Check out Revise a question for assignment regrading to see how to create an updated version of a question to subsequently use for assignment regrading.

Möbius will then inform you of how the students' grades have changed by comparing their existing response to the question revision (Example — a student's grade can increase, decrease, or remain unchanged depending on the nature of the question revision).

You'll decide whether to accept the students' new grades based on the question revision, or keep their existing grade that was associated with the previous question version.

Assignment regrading is initiated from the Gradebook, and assignment regrading jobs can be observed while running in the background of Möbius from the Regrade Jobs page (check out View the Regrade Jobs page page).

IMPORTANT: Assignment regrading isn't applied to questions that have been manually graded or have had their grades manually adjusted. Check out Perform manual grading for more information on manually editing grades in the Gradebook.
