D2L: Grading a Quiz - Questions View

VERSION 10.3 AND HIGHER

Some of the questions that are found on a quiz are auto-graded.  For example, multiple choice and True/False questions.  Other question types must be manually graded.  Even if questions are autograded, quizzes should be reviewed.  If an error is made to a correct answer, the instructor always has the ability to go back and update a score.  There are different approaches to grading quizzes.  This quickguide provides basic information about how to grade a quiz in the Question View. Also see Grading a quiz in the Desire2Learn Resource Center.  Clicking on this link will take you away from the Knowledge Base.
