Grade Written Response Quiz Questions

Grading essay questions can easily be done within MyCourses. When using essay questions, it is a best practice to not publish the grades to the gradebook or allow students to see their grade until you have graded all questions.

For quizzes with written response answers that cannot be auto-graded, the quiz should not be set up to automatically publish results. These settings can be adjusted in the quiz settings under the Assessment tab.
