When editing a test that has been shared and/or already given to a student, the data could be altered:
- If you add or remove questions, the percentage correct will change.
- If you edit a question that changes what is asked, the data will no longer reflect the student's answers.
- If you edit a question and only change a picture (the question asks "what color is this" and you change the picture from a frog to a leaf), the data remains intact.

- using the "My Tests" filter on the left side
