    1. If you choose Multiple Attempts, type in the specific number of attempts allowed in the text box below
  8. Decide how you will grade the multiple submissions (e.g. accept last grade, first grade, average, highest, or lowest. Typically, faculty choose "Last Graded Attempt" when students should have multiple opportunities to submit, but faculty will only grade the final draft/submission. Other options are suitable when drafts will be scored or multiple graders' feedback will be factored into final grade.)
