As long as no students have started the Customized Content, the teacher can add or make edits to questions, answers, and the point value.
When the Customized Content does have responses submitted by any student:
- Teachers can make changes to the Title, Instructions, and Start/End Date at any time.
If a teacher attempts to make edits to Questions, Answers, or Point Value after any student has begun the Customized Content a pop-up will appear stating “A student has already started the “Insert title of Customized Content” so the Customized Content can no longer be modified. Click OK to create a copy, make any changes, and then click “Create” to save it!”
- If a teacher does not want to proceed with changes they will click the Cancel button (X in top right corner of the pop-up).
- If “Ok” button is clicked, the teacher is taken to a copy of the original Customized Content so the user can make any changes and then click “Create.”
