Assigning Zero Points

    I assign a Final Exam in Quizzes. There are 13 short essay questions and each is worth 10 points. However, if I find that one of the student's answers has been plagiarized I will immediately fail the student for the whole exam. In order for the 0 points to register in Grades, I'm forced to assign 0 points to every single answer even if some of the questions were answered correctly. Otherwise the 0 will not appear in Grades for that particular student. I would like Canvas to have a grading procedure where I can just put down the total points as 0 and have it appear in Grades as 0 without my having to go through every single question#.
