Grading by Question

Grade Individual Responses

Grade Individual Responses enables you to grade a quiz one question at a time. This means you can grade and leave feedback for all responses to each question before moving onto the next question.

There are two additional options available in this view:

  • Blind Marking Student information does not appear alongside responses and responses display in a shuffled order. 
  • View Graded Responses Previously-graded responses appear as part of the response queue.

Update All Attempts

Update All Attempts enables you to view question statistics, make grading changes, and leave feedback for all responses to the selected question.

Question statistics display a percentage breakdown of how users responded to the question and the date of the most recent response. Other information that displays in the question statistics includes the quiz version, question text and options, and number of responses for each option.

Below the question statistics, there are options to modify the grade for all responses to the current question. Use Grading Type to override grades for all users at once, instead of individually updating each quiz attempt.

The following options are available for the Grading Type:

  • Give to all attempts Allows you to award points to all users who received the current question on their quiz by entering the desired point value in the text field.
  • Give to attempts with answer (#) Allows you to award points for a specific response. This is useful if a question was incorrectly set up when the quiz was created. For example, if students who complete the quiz receive a grade value of 0 when they really should receive a grade value of 1, you can use this option to award them the appropriate grade value.

Transfer Quiz Grades to the Grade Book

Note: When Allow automatic export to grades is enabled, the system can send auto-graded attempt scores directly to the grade book. This requires that a grade item is associated with the quiz.

If you did not select Allow automatic export to grades, or have made changes to quiz grading, and want to publish/republish the grades:
