If a quiz is auto-graded and the scores are sent to Gradebook, you do not have to grade quizzes. Some cases under which you might want to manually grade your quiz include:
To grade quizzes manually, go to Quizzes and click Grade Quiz for the quiz you wish to grade.
To Grade an Attempt for an individual student, use either the Users tab or the Attempts tab.
Use the dropdown menus and Search button to display all students, students who have submitted quizzes, and other options.
Click on the Display Options link to control how much information is displayed.
- ID – displays the participants' Carmen IDs beside their name
- Quiz Score – displays the points earned beside each quiz attempt
- Percent – displays the percent correct beside each quiz attempt
- Completed – displays date and time each attempt was completed
- Allow Reset – allows you to delete specific attempts – if you check this box, a checkbox will appear beside the users' attempts. Checking the box and selecting the delete icon will delete the selected attempt.
If you have allowed more than 1 attempt, each attempt will be recorded separately for you to review. The Overall Grade represents whatever calculation you specified on the Attempts tab when setting up the quiz. This is the score that is sent to the Gradebook.
1. Click on the quiz attempt you wish to review.
2. At the top of the screen, you will see data about when the student took the quiz, how long the quiz was open, and other information.
3. Clicking on the Quizzes Event Log link will provide detailed information about the student’s movement through the quiz.
1. Click on the quiz attempt you wish to manually grade. The student’s entire quiz is displayed, including the question, the student's answers and the correct answers.
2. To change the score for an auto-graded question, enter a new value in the Score textbox.
3. You can give the user feedback on any individual question by clicking Add Feedback below the question.
4. Overall quiz feedback can be added in the Attempt Comments textbox.
5. After you have finished manually grading the quiz, click the Re-Calculate button. Clicking Auto-Grade will re-apply the original auto-graded scores.
6. Click the Save button.
7. You can use the Attempt Dropdown menu to view other attempts by the same student and the Previous and Next arrows to move between students.
Grading by question gives you two options.
While grading a quiz, click the Questions tab to view quiz responses broken down by question. Click on a question title to grade or re-grade that question. If you have more than one 1 version of the question, you can access responses for each version. The current version will be listed at the top of Questions tab. All previous versions will be listed under the "Questions that are not in the quiz anymore" heading.
Making any change to a question after students start taking a quiz will result in two versions of the question. This is true even if your change is not substantive (ie, you corrected a typo). If your change affects how the quiz is auto-graded (ie, you changed which answer is correct), Carmen will keep track of which students took each version. However, the styem will not automatically “regrade” attempts that have already been submitted. You will need to make the correction yourself for students who took the first version. Grading by Question is the most effective way to do this. For more information on re-grading corrected questions.
1. Click the radio-buttton to Update all Attempts.
2. Click the name of the question you want to grade. For auto-graded questions, you should see a bar-chart summarizing student responses to the question.
3. Several options are available to update the grade. Click the radio-button to choose which approach you want to use, then provide the desired points value.
• the Give to all attempts option awards a specified points value to all users who received that question on their quiz. Type the desired point value in the textbox. Click Save.
• the Give to attempts with answer (#) option allows you to specify a different value for each possible response. Use the dropdown menu to select the response, then type the desired point value in the text box. Click Save. Repeat as needed for other responses.
The Modifications Log tracks the changes you make to the grading. The log documents the date,
time, username, and action taken for each change to quiz grading.
1. Click the radio-button to Grade Individual Responses.
2. Check the boxes to indicate whether you want to hide student names ("Blind Marking") or see responses that have already been graded.
3. Click the name of the question you want to grade.
4. Use the navigation options at the top of the screen to control how many responses you see at one time. Enter your points value and any feedback for each student response.
5. Click Save when you are finished with each screen.
