Revising your work in open-ended questions

You can edit your work in short-answer questions and response boards. After you post your response, you’ll see the Unpost & Edit button, which will allow you to revise your answer.

When you unpost your response, you’ll receive a warning message letting you know that your score will temporarily drop until you post a new response. If you don’t want to see the warning message again, you can disable it by checking “Please don’t remind me about this anymore.”

Note that you are not penalized for revising your work. Because response boards and short-answer questions are graded on completion, you will receive credit as long as you’ve posted a response. Keep in mind that your instructor can review your work and ask you to make changes. For more information, check out this article: How does the webtext grade my work?
