View and Grade Quiz Attempts

Although many question types can be auto-graded, other question types (e.g., written response questions) must be manually graded and published. The steps below describe how to manually grade quizzes in two difference ways:

  1. Grade quizzes by User (Student)
  2. Grade quizzes by Question

The steps below can also be followed to adjust any auto-graded scores, or simply to view a student’s quiz attempt.

Grade Quizzes by Attempt

  2. On the Manage Quizzes page, from the context menu of the quiz, click the Grade option.
