Clearing an attempt

The Assignment Manager allows you to create an assignment that automatically becomes an item in your Gradebook. Students complete this assignment in a separate file and electronically send it back to you through the Course Menu. You may then download these files from the Gradebook and review them, before assigning a grade. The Assignment tutorials will guide you through this process.

In this tutorial you will learn how to navigate to the Assessment area and clear an attempt to allow a student to resubmit an assignment.
