How can you hand-grade a Quiz REALLY quickly in Canvas?

I am looking for suggestions of how to grade a quiz of (e.g.) 20 math questions -- each of which is an Essay Question, to permit student-composed equations -- really quickly in Canvas.


On paper, I mark each question that does not deserve full credit with a negative score of the number of points deducted.  That way, I don't have to touch any of the  questions answered correctly.  Since most students answer most questions correctly, this minimizes the amount of grading work needed.


Canvas seems to require entering a grade for each and every Quiz Question that is not graded automatically.  So, for my 20 math questions, I have to enter 20 grades, rather than just the 3 or 4 that a student might get wrong.


Any ideas of how to not have to enter a grade for each and every quiz question?  Since I use these quizzes for weekly homework assignments, having to enter 20 grades for 100 or 150 students each week can get quite tiring!
