How do I give the same score (e.g., 0) to students with no submission for an assessment?

Updated

By default, students with No Submission to an assessment will have a blank, or null, score. The assessment will not count towards their final grade until a score has been entered for them. The same score can be assigned, such as 0, to all students who did not submit an assessment.

WARNING: Once a score has been saved for a student in Tests & Quizzes, the score cannot be removed from that student's course grade. The score would have to be excused from the total course grade in Gradebook.

Go to Tests & Quizzes.

Select the Tests & Quizzes tool from the course Tool Menu.

Select the Published - All view.

Select the Published-All view in the View drop-down to view the assessments that have been released to students.

Go to the assessment submissions.

Select the Scores option from the drop-down menu for the assessment that requires scoring changes.

Alternatively, select the numeral of submissions within the the Submitted column to view the submissions for that assessment.

Enter a score to apply to students with No Submission.

Enter a point value (e.g., 0) in the box following Apply This Score.

Select Apply This Score.

Selecting Apply this score saves the change to the score of ALL students with No Submission.

View scores and adjustments.

Students with No Submission will have the applied score entered in the grade Adjustment box, and these scores will display as their Final Score.

If adjustments to individual scores need to be made, enter a value in the corresponding Adjustment cell and select the Update button to apply the adjustment.

WARNING: Once a score has been saved for a student in Tests & Quizzes, the score cannot be removed from that student's course grade. The score would have to be excused from the total course grade in Gradebook.
