  • Ignoring the attempt will allow the student to take the assessment again, preserving a copy of the student's original submission. 
  • Clearing the attempt also allows the student to retake the assessment, but this option deletes the student's original submission.
  • After the instructor ignores the attempt, the student can retake the assessment from the beginning. If questions are randomized or pulled from a larger test pool, the student may see a different assessment the second time they take it.
