I want to delete an incomplete quiz in order to submit a different one. How do I do this? Also, why aren't instructions for doing this readily available and/or clearly marked in the quiz creation system?

Just use the template you already have for a different quiz.

If you look in the Quiz Authoring Q & A, this topic was discussed quite recently. There are some guidelines there to help in changing the category. It's not difficult to do but it is a bit long-winded.

And don't just delete it if it's already been submitted to an editor one or more times. If it's been edited and returned, you need to work with the editor in question before you do anything about deleting it. (If it's never been submitted then you can delete it or do a new quiz in the template or whatever, but with you saying you want to delete it to submit another, I took it that you might mean you have one that's been submitted that you want to delete. Just deleting one that's been into the editing process is much more problematical so you need the editor to help you work out what to do with the quiz) smile

These guys are correct. Since you only have one question in your quiz, change the title and category, clear it out, and just start fresh on the same template. Saves the hassle.

Thank you, everyone.

Yes, I want to abandon the quiz I started, at least for now, and instead create one in the Music category. Thanks to your help, I should be able to do that now.
