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

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:
