You are presented with 4 options for grading quizzes:
To access the last three, from the main Quizzes page, click the
Grade Quiz icon next to the quiz you want to grade.
The options Users, Attempts, and Questions are displayed in tabs near the top of the page. By selecting the appropriate tab, you have the ability to grade by either users, attempts or questions.
Below Display Options is the Search For section where you can search for a user by first name, last name, and user ID. The Restrict to option allows you to restrict your list and searches by All users, All users who have not taken an attempt, Users who have completed an attempt, Users with attempts in progress, Users with an overall score, and Users who have previewed an attempt. The default is Users who have completed an attempt, so the list of users below will only include those users. To see all users in the course, select All users from the Restrict to drop-down and then click Search.
The list of users below the search area can be sorted by Last Name or First Name by clicking on the desired option. All attempts for a user are listed under their names. To the right of each attempt, if the display options are selected, are the date and time the attempt was completed, score, percentage, and if the attempt has been graded.
To grade a user's attempt:
Grading by attempt is very similar to grading by user. The only difference is in how the attempts are displayed and how they can be searched. You can search through attempts by first name, last name, and ID, and restrict the search results by all attempts, attempts within a certain number of days, attempts in progress, and preview attempts. You can also restrict by graded and/or ungraded attempts, attempts within a certain score range, and attempts submitted before or after a certain date.
As with grading a quiz by users, the list of attempts can be rearranged based on user first or last name by clicking on the desired option. If the display options are set, the date and time the attempt was completed, the score, and whether or not the attempt was graded.
Click on the quiz attempt you want to grade and follow the instructions laid out under "To grade a user's attempt:" in Grade a quiz by Users section.
Click the Questions tab to view quiz responses and grade the quiz by question. Grading by question allows you to easily correct mistakes that might have occurred during the initial set up of quiz questions simply by overriding the original grade for that question. For example, perhaps an error was made when creating a multiple choice question and users who completed the quiz received a point value of 0 for a question for which they really should have received a point value of 1. Grading by question will allow you to override grades for all users at once, instead of individually updating each quiz attempt. You can also enter additional comments all users can see when they view their quiz report.
Select the Update All Attempts option and then click on a question title to view statistics on and/or re-grade that question for all attempts.
Note: Any modifications made to the grading of the quiz question is logged. The log will document the date, time, username, and action taken for each change to quiz grading.
