- How to edit an exisiting test or survey
This topic describes how to build and edit a test or survey. Once a test or survey is built, questions are created or added from existing questions from tests, surveys, and pools.
A warning page appears if any students are in the process of taking the test or have already taken the test when Edit is selected. Certain areas of the test will not be available to edit if the test has already been taken by students.
If the instructor edits an test after a student has submitted it, the student will view the new, edited test when they view their grade and feedback. They will not view their original test attempt.
