Received from instructor...

A student accessed one of my exams and achieved a score long before it should have been available.  How do I erase his score and unpublish the exam?  Currently canvas says I can't unpublish if a student has already made an attempt.  Help!

What are the instructions options in this scenario? Thank you, Team!

That is correct, you can't un-publish a quiz after a student has made an attempt.  Here is a way around it.

1.  Go to settings

2.  Choose Export Content

3.  Choose Quiz as Export Type

4.  Import the file as a QTI file.

Now you should have a new quiz with a brand new identifier number with no student records.

Playing around I discovered an easier way.

If you make a copy of the quiz/exam you get a fresh unpublished version with no student grades.  Now you can delete the original and just erase the word "copy" in the title.  This worked for me.

Note:  you can verify that the quiz is in fact new by looking at the unique ID number at the end of the URL.

Sorry to throw another option out there, but here is yet another way, but it doesn't remove the student attempt.

Create an unpublished module and move the quiz there.  You will still have the quiz in the grade book along with any scores, but other students will not be able to access the quiz.

Although this is not quite related to the OP's question, it's a cool way to fix a mistake before other students take the quiz.  Then you can adjust with fudge points.

I think making a copy and deleting the original quiz is the best option for the OP's problem.
