Question

How do I enable or disable a test/quiz or assessment for individual students? 

Answer

If you have students who need to take a quiz after the deadline has passed, for example, due to absence, you can enable/disable the quiz until you are ready to administer the item to those students using the Individually Assign feature.

There are two options:

  1. You can individually assign a specific course material when enabling an item for individual students.
  2. You can individually assign or disable course materials in a folder with the Individually Assign Folders feature.

The following instructions are for individually assigning item(s) in a folder.

To enable a quiz within a folder for individual students:

  1. Click the gear icon next to the folder.
  2. Select Individually Assign from the drop-down menu.

  3. Enter the student(s) name in the search field under Select Students or use the drop-down to check student(s) in the course section.
  4. To assign to everyone except for one or more students, check Select All and uncheck the relevant student(s). This is a great option if you want to hide the folder from students who were absent on a certain day.
  5. Alternatively, if the folder is already assigned to individuals and you want to make adjustments, click Clear All in the upper-right. Next, enter the name(s) of the student(s) in the search field or use the drop-down to check student(s) in the course section.individually_assign_clear_all.png
  6. Click Next.
  7. Click Assign to confirm changes.

To disable a quiz within a folder for individual students: 

  1. Click the gear icon next to the folder. 
  2. Select Individually Assign from the drop-down menu.

  3. Click the search field and then Select All

  5. Click Next.
  6. Click Assign to confirm changes.
Important Notes: 
  • Ensure that submissions are Enabled. Assessments can be enabled from the Edit area within the assessment. Test/quizzes can be enabled from the Settings area within the test/quiz. 
  • If some students have already completed an item that is later individually assigned to specific students, the scores for the students not included when individually assigning will temporarily "disappear" from the gradebook. They will reappear once the item is reassigned back to the entire class or the affected students. To circumvent this, you can create copies of the item to individually assign, rather than reassigning a single version. 
  • If you sync grades from Schoology to an SIS, individually assigned items sync over to the SIS gradebook and are visible to all students in the course. Students who were not assigned this item will view the assignment title but no grade will be passed to the SIS gradebook.
