How do I grade assessment submissions by student?

Updated on

Most question types in Tests & Quizzes are automatically graded by the system. However, instructors need to manually score short answer/essay questions, file uploads, and audio recordings. They may also adjust auto-graded scores, add comments, or give partial credit.
