Basing a Grade off Highest Score and Not Most Recent Attempt

"I created a test which allows multiple attempts (2), and I would like to base the grade off of the highest, NOT the most recent attempt. Right now, it is basing it off of the last attempt. How can I change this?"

If you enable multiple attempts for a test, you can choose which grade to use as the grade for that test. For example, you can choose whether Blackboard uses the Grade of Last Attempt (default), Score of First Attempt, the Average of Attempt Grades, Highest Grade, or Lowest Grade for calculating final grades. If you would like to base the grade off of the highest and not the most recent attempt, you can change it by following this tutorial.
