  4. Ensure that the Quiz Name and Grade Item correspond with what is listed in your syllabus and the grade item in the Grades tool.Once the Grade Item is selected, check Allow attempt to be set as graded immediately upon completion if the quiz contains questions that you wish to be automatically graded (True/False, Multiple Choice, Multiple Select, etc.).

    Select Allow automatic export to grades if you wish to have the scores of the automatically graded questions exported to the Grades tool. Note: If your quiz contains non auto-graded questions (ex. Written Response Questions), then these questions will not be auto-graded and will contribute 0 points to the overall score. You will have to manually grade these questions and then publish or republish the grades to include these points in the overall score.
