Deleting an Answer File

March 15, 2016 Kelly Basara

ExamSoft permits only one answer file upload for each Exam Taker per assessment. Users with full admin rights are able to delete an answer file on an assessment for an Exam Taker on an as-needed basis. Deleting an answer file will remove the previously uploaded answer file for an Exam Taker allowing them to upload a new one.

2. Select an assessment.

3. Select the Exam Taker Activity tab.
