Getting Back Lost Grades 


Canvas will set a quiz for "Everyone" in your course by default; accordingly, if students have already taken the quiz and you remove "Everyone" from the Assign to field, attempts and scores for those students will be removed from the quiz.

Therefore, if students have already taken the quiz, you should add individual students using the Add button instead of removing "Everyone" from the Assign to field.

You can visit Changing the due date/time settings for an individual to learn how to assign a quiz to an individual student. 

 

Follow the steps below to get the grades back on the gradebook for the rest of the students.

 

(1) Locate the quiz where the attempts and scores have been lost and click the "Edit" button. Then, under the "Assign to" area, click on the "Add" button.

(2) Clink on the "Assign to" field and select "Everyone" from the list.
