You can override a student test mark in Grade Centre using one of the following options:

  • Override the column mark.
  • Use the Manual Override tab (Which has the advantage of allowing you to enter an explanation to the student and instructor notes).

Note: Future attempts are also overridden, so if they re-attempt the test the mark does not change and the Needs grading icon is not displayed.

Override the column mark
