In short, no.
*disclaimer: my experience is with Aplia assignments within MindTap. Standalone Aplia could be different.
Once students click the "grade it now" button, they are unable to change their answers. Once their 3 attempts are used in a question set, they do not get any more attempts. Once they click, "I'm done, grade it now" for grade upon submission option or it passed the due date on grade at due date option, students are no longer able to access the assignment to complete additional work. As an instructor, you have no control to reset any questions either while in progress or after submission. Only control is to delete the entire submission after submission.
Here are your current options...
A few other strategies I've worked on with instructors for Aplia are...
Hope this helps.

Wow @Matthew_Anneken! I learned so much about Aplia from you! Although I don't use Aplia, I was going to answer this from a SAM perspective, and the information you have outlined for @Debra_Campbell is so complete and very similar to other test environments. My students ask me this all the time as well; "I only missed one question, why can't I just take that one again?". BECAUSE we offer practice tests and trainings, along with reports with remediation and multiple attempts, students should be well prepared to complete an exam successfully. This is their chance to prove what they know (and what they have retained).
Granted, we do have periodic hiccups, "crashes" or faulty questions/tasks, and those can be tossed, grades can be curved, exams can be reset.... Hope this helps! Enjoy your Saturday..:). Sandy Keeter
