Quizzes - Grading Quizzes
Last modified on 05 July 2023 07:22 PM

All quiz question types (except for ‘Essay’) are graded automatically by eClass after the student has submitted their quiz attempt.

It is a recommended practice to review short answer questions in case credit should be provided for acceptable but non-matching answers. Essay questions require manual grading.

Note: Students who have not attempted a quiz will not be able to view questions or answers until they attempt the quiz regardless of the review options settings.

Getting started:

To do any quiz attempt reviews or grading, you must first click on the quiz link from your main eClass page.

To manually grade a student's essay response in a quiz:

  1. If you want to review each student's full attempt one at a time, click 'Attempts: #'  and choose 'Review attempt' for each individual:

  2. To see a detailed view of only the long answer responses that need grading for the entire quiz, click on the Results tab, then the Grades dropdown, then on Manual grading.

  3. The next page will display all questions that require manual grading.
  4. Clicking on the grade all link opens a grading interface that allows you to mark and comment on a question:

  5. When manually grading an essay question, the grader is able to enter a custom comment in response to the essay and assign a score. Always be sure to click the Save button before navigating to another page.

    The options on this page will remain set for a given quiz, rather than resetting after leaving the grading window. 

To review short answer question responses:

  1. To quickly review short answer question responses for an entire quiz, select Responses under the Grades dropdown:

  2. Clicking Responses will open a quiz attempt table but with answers rather than scores received:
