Grading a Quiz

Grading Manual Grading, Export Overrides

Most question types used in the Quiz activity are graded automatically in the CLE. This is one of the major benefits of using the CLE for online assessment. Essay questions, however, are not automatically graded by the system and must be manually graded by instructors or grading assistants.

To access Grades, Responses, Statistics, and Manual Grading:

    1. After all students have submitted their attempts, log in to the CLE (
    2. Go to the CLE course where a quiz has been attempted by students.
    3. Click on the quiz link on the course page. For this example, we will click on Final Exam as shown quiz link
    4. While in the quiz, navigate to the gear icon and select Results to access Grades, Responses, Statistics, or Manual grading for the quiz attempts. You can also click the Attempts link from the middle of the page to access reports as shown below.
      1. Grades shows all the students’ attempts, along with their overall grades, and the grade for each question for the final exam. There are links to review details related to each student’s attempt.
      2. Responses is very similar to the Grades report, except it shows the responses the students submitted, rather than the marks (or points) they earned. It is also possible to show the question text or the right answer in this report, to compare with the other student’s response. This is helpful when the question is randomized.
      3. Statistics gives a statistical (psychometric) analysis of the quiz, and the questions within it. The front page of this report gives a summary of the whole test. Additionally there are links to drill down into a detailed analysis for each question. Please refer to Quiz statistics report or watch the Grading a Quiz video for more detailed information about the different types of statistics that can be collected in the CLE.
      4. Manual grading is used to grade essay questions and override scores for other question-types. The first screen of the report lists all the questions in the quiz that need to be, or have been manually graded. Additionally there is an option to show the questions that have been automatically graded, which is useful if you ever need override a grade for a multi-choice question for example.
