After starting your AutoTest and opening your assignment to students, you may sometimes still need to make changes to it. This guide explains how to do stop, re-configure and restart your AutoTest, and what your students can expect when you do that.
Stopping an active AutoTest (with or without submissions)
It is possible to stop your active (running) AutoTest at any time. Simply press the "Stop" button to do so. You can do this at any stage of your assignment, even if it is open to students or if students already have submissions with AutoTest results.
If the assignment is active and students have already submitted, stopping an AutoTest will delete all current AutoTest results for your students. Clicking on the AutoTest tab will show the students that the AutoTest has not been run. Rubric categories that are linked to AutoTest will be emptied and automatic grades may change for a student.
After making the desired changes to your AutoTest, you can safely restart it by just pressing the "Start" button again. It will then automatically run on all previous student submissions, generate results for them and fill in their rubric.
