Learn@UW - Grading Quizzes by Question

Instructors and graders can grade Learn@UW quiz questions one at a time. This feature is especially useful if you want to focus on grading all student responses to a question in order to preserve grading consistency.

To Grade By Quiz Question

  1. Begin by accessing the Quizzes tool.
  2. Click the dropdown menu beside the quiz you'd like to grade and select Grade.
  3. Click the Questions tab.
  4. NOTE: Your other option is to grade the quiz by attempt instead of by question. To do this you would instead click the Attempts tab.

  5. Select one of the following grading options:

    • 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 on to the next question. There are two additional options available in this view:
      • Blind Marking: When selected, student information doesn't appear alongside responses AND responses are displayed for you in a shuffled order. This is designed to help prevent unintentional bias during grading.
      • View Graded Responses: When selected, previously graded responses appear as part of the response queue.
    • Update All Attempts: Enables you to view question statistics, make grading changes, and leave feedback for all responses to the question you're grading. Question statistics display a percentage breakdown of how users responded to the question and the date of the most recent response. Other information displayed in the question statistics includes the quiz version, question text and options, and number of responses for each option. 
  6. To begin grading, click a question from your list of quiz questions in the Questions tab.
  7. Continue with the appropriate section below based on your grading selection.
  8. Grading by Individual Responses

    When you select Grade Individual Responses you'll see responses listed by question (the students' names may or may not be hidden depending on whether you selected the "Blind Marking" option).

    The drop-down box at the very top of the page lets you control whether 1, 5, 10, or 20 responses appear on each page.

    Score/grade each response as needed, then click Save

    Grading by Updating All Attempts

    When you select the Update All Attempts option, question statistics display a percentage breakdown of how users responded to the question and the date of the most recent response. Other information displayed includes the quiz version, question text and options, and number of responses for each option.

    Below the question stats are options grade for all responses to the current question. Use the Grading Type options to override grades for all students at once instead of individually updating each quiz attempt:

    • Give to all attempts: Allows you to award points to all students who received the current question on their quiz.
    • 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 completed the quiz received a grade value of 0 when they really should have received a grade value of 1, you can use this option to award them the appropriate grade value.

    Click Save when you're done assigning grades.
