Grade as automatic zero an unanswered question in a Quiz

Grade as automatic zero an unanswered question in a Quiz

0 Kudos
(4)

When assigning short-answer questions on a Quiz, unanswered questions are flagged as unanswered and, if unanswered, are not given an automatic grade of zero for that question.

I can't off-hand think of why an unanswered question would be anything other than a zero, but even if it would make sense to allow for that possibility, there should at least be a setting that would set unanswered questions to be graded automatically as zero rather than only flagged as unanswered.

Yes, this would be brilliant!  This would simplify a lot of the grading for quizzes that have this question type.  If it's blank, it's worth zero--the extra step of having to scroll and place the zero is tedious when a default zero for an unanswered question would solve that problem.

This is an excellent idea, please implement as soon as possible. Many students attempt some but not all of a quiz and manually putting zeros in can be half of one's marking feedback time... for something which is of (literally!) zero benefit to the student.

This is a no brainer - why would there be marks available for doing nothing??

This is an excellent idea. Can't understand why it is not the default already.

Unanswered should definitely be set to zero

Hopefully, this becomes part of Canvas.

What's not to like about automatic marking, bring it on😉

I concur with the previous comments.  At the very least, make it automatic.   However, the option in the quiz settings would be nice.
