How do I edit a quiz?

Updated Apr 15, 2021

This article explains the two ways to edit a quiz

There are two ways to edit an existing quiz:

  • By using the Quiz Quick menu.
  • By using Bulk Edit on the quiz homepage.

  • Navigate to Course Tools in the navbar of your course.
  • Click Quizzes. You will now navigate to the quiz homepage and see an overview of all your quizzes.
  • Click the fold-out arrow of a quiz and then click Edit. You will be directed to the same screen you would use when creating a new quiz (and thus you also have the same options).
  • Select the desired course(s) and click on Bulk Edit.

If you want to edit the content of a quiz, you will have to use Edit. If you want to alter the name, category, status and/or the number of attempts (of multiple quizzes at the same time) you can use Bulk Edit (scroll down for more instructions).

  1. Change the name of the quiz/quizzes.
  2. Change the category of a quiz or quizzes (or add a new category).
  3. Change the status of a quiz or quizzes.  Select the check box to make a quiz active. Note that a quiz is only available for students after you have made it Active.
  4. Change the maximum amount of attempts.
  5. Click Save to save the changes made.
