Making bulk changes to the answer key

'Bulk changes' allows instructors to make adjustments to the grading scheme, or the question weight, of all the questions in their answer key, in one go.


How to access 'Bulk changes'

In order to use the 'Bulk changes' feature, at least one answer option on the answer key must be selected. We recommend filling out your answer key, before applying any bulk changes.

Once you've entered your answer key, select the 'More options' dropdown menu and select 'Bulk changes'.
