Can you assign a 1 point quiz for all students that gives them 1 point regardless if they gave the correct answer or not?
Hi again, Morgan
The Canvas gradebook displays your entire roster, so yes, everybody's name comes up regardless of submission status on any graded activity.
So here is a third option that you might find workable if you are not teaching one of those 1000+ enrollment lecture courses. You can simply grade them using SpeedGrader if they submit, give them the point; and if they don,t then don't give them the point. For a one-item quiz, this is not at all tedious.
Finally, as the awesome Stefanie Sanders has suggested while I was typing this, you can use graded surveys - thanks, Stefanie!
You cannot do this in the manner you are hoping - a quiz that auto scores in the way you need - but you can do this by entering a default grade in the gradebook. Learn more at How do I set a default grade for an assignment?
Keep in mind that this technique will give all students the point, even if they haven't submitted the quiz.
If you would like to propose this as a feature idea, you can learn more at How does the feature idea process work?
Thank you for your email!! I am so stuck!!
Do you know if a student does not take the assigned quiz if there name still comes up in the gradebook?

Thank you so much for your help. I think the graded survey is the way to go since the class is about 260 students.
...and what's nifty about that solution, Morgan, is that you can still use the default grade option Kelley L. Meeusen suggested to assign 0 grades to those students who did not complete the quiz. Just make sure that you do not enable the "Overwrite already-entered grades" checkbox.
That is great! Thank you so much!
You're welcome! :-D
Morgan Matthews here's a slightly belated Welcome to the Canvas Community! If you want to award students points for completing a quiz rather than getting the answers right, you could use a graded survey. Please refer to How do I create a survey in my course?
And to answer your follow-up question, the names of all students who are enrolled in the course will display in the Gradebook.
