D2L (Brightspace) - Submitting Quiz Attempts on Behalf of Students

Sometimes students complete a quiz but exit without submitting their attempt. It is possible for instructors to view and submit those quiz attempts on behalf of the student(s).

IMPORTANT NOTE: This must be done after the quiz period has ended, or it could interfere with students currently taking the quiz.

  1. Go to the D2L course, then go to Activities > Quizzes> Manage Quizzes. 
  2. From the Manage Quizzes list, click the black arrow Arrow to the right of the desired quiz, and select Grade. The list of completed student quiz attempts appears.

  3. To locate students who have not submitted their quiz attempt, select Users with attempts in progress from the Restrict to dropdown menu.

  4. Then, click on the magnifying glass to the right of the search box (located a bit above the Restrict to dropdown menu).

  5. If results display, you will see the attempt list with an In Progress notification and an Enter Quiz as User icon.

  6. Click the Enter Quiz as User icon: Enter Quiz As User

  7. Choose Yes to confirm.

  8. The student's attempt will open. If desired, review the quiz answers in that attempt.

  9. Submit the quiz on the student's behalf by clicking Go to Submit Quiz, found at the bottom of the list of questions.

  10. Confirm the submission if asked, or click Exit Impersonating if you decide not to submit the quiz of the student's behalf.

  11. If you chose to submit the attempt, you will be returned to the list of unsubmitted attempts for that quiz.
