You may want to delete a student’s attempt to upload an assignment — if it’s blank and duplicated, for example — without applying a zero to their grade. Here’s how. (Click the screenshots to expand.)
1) Go to Grade Center > Full Grade Center and find the cell for the student/assignment. Click the chevron for edit (there will be the ! for Needs Grading) and click “View Grade Details.”
2) It’s a bit tricky from here to see which is the blank/”wrong” attempt if you don’t know, though it seems likely it’ll be the older one. But, to delete a submission, click Clear Attempt and then OK when you get the prompt about deleting it. That’s it!
