Manually Grading Quizzes


If you chose not to set your quiz to be Automatically Graded upon completion you will need to mark the quiz attempts so that the results can be exported to the grade book (if applicable) and to make the quiz results available to the student.

Manually Grading

An easy way to determine if a quiz attempt has not been graded is to look at the Published column on the Manage Quizzes Screen. If you see a 0 or if the two numbers do not match, you will know that quiz attempts are not marked as graded.
