  2. Click on the assessment title to go into the assessment.
  3. Click on the Submissions link at the top of the window.
  4. Click on the View, Grade, or Delete Submissions link
  5. Click on the Delete button next to the student in question. It will ask you "Are you sure you want to delete this response from ...?". Click OK. You have no successfully removed the students previous attempt.
  6. The student should now be able to take the assessment again.
Note: Keep in mind that you are removing an attempt. This attempt and its score will not be accessible by the instructor again.
