How do I grade a quiz in New Quizzes?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I grade a quiz in New Quizzes?

You can grade New Quizzes quizzes using SpeedGrader. Most quiz items are graded automatically after a student submits the quiz. However, essay and file upload questions must be graded manually.

This lesson describes how to access SpeedGrader from the Gradebook.

Notes:

  • You cannot grade New Quizzes quizzes in concluded courses.
  • New Quizzes grades for students with concluded enrollments are not sent to the Canvas Gradebook.
