Q: I have assigned six quizzes, but would like the one with the lowest grade to be dropped for the final grading of the quizzes. How do I do that?
A: Make sure that the quizzes are under a grade category and condition the grade category to exclude the quizz with the lowest score.
Q: students reported that he could not open the quiz for a new attempt because it said he has an “attempt in progress” and “time exceeded”. How do I clear these hidden (to me) open attempts.

select Grade in the scroll down menue
make sure it is restricted to “all users,” hit magnifying glass.
check boxes in front of the attempts which need to be deleted and click on the trash can.

|This email is in regard to a feature within D2L that may be exploited by students to cheat on quizzes and exams.SUMMARY
D2L allows students to re-enter a quiz after leaving the quiz for any reason. This feature is useful for recovering from internet connection problems or other disruptions. This feature can be exploited by two students, one in the classroom and one outside of the classroom, to enter a quiz or exam in quick succession. The second student (the re-entrant student) can then take the quiz on behalf of the student in the classroom while both are connected to the same quiz. The instructor can make such collaboration difficult but cannot completely prevent it.
We are actively investigating along with D2L methods of addressing this issue. We don’t expect to be able to completely prevent such behavior due to undesirable consequences for other students, but we are working on detecting it so appropriate notifications can be made and action can be taken quickly.
If you need more information on the issue, prevention, and possible solutions, please contact your local D2L System Administrator or Dick McMullen at firstname.lastname@example.org or Chuck Morris at Chuck.Morris@so.mnscu.edu.
