Set Practice Another Version Display for Specific Questions

You can show or hide the Practice Another Version feature for questions on your assignment. For questions with randomized values, Practice Another Version lets your students attempt the same question with a different randomization for no credit.

Practice Another Version is valuable for learning assignments, but you might want to hide it for quizzes, tests, or exams.

You can show or hide Practice Another Version for the assignment or for specific questions. You can also choose to show Practice Another Version before the due date only after students have made a certain number of submissions. Question-specific settings apply only before the due date.
