Publish Quizzes Manually if They Do Not Appear in the Gradebook

If your quizzes do not automatically publish to the gradebook, it is likely because the Assessment tab for the quiz is not configured correctly.

Configuring a Quiz to Publish Grades

  1. From the quiz's Assessment Tab, make sure you have linked the quiz to a grade item. You will do this in the Grade Item drop-down menu.
  2. Make sure the [Allow attempt to be set as graded immediately upon completion] checkbox is selected.
  3. Make sure the [Allow automatic export to grades] checkbox is selected.
    Indicates Automatic Grade, Grade Item, and Auto Export to Grades options
  4. If you change the configuration of the Assessments Tab after students have taken the quiz, those students' grades will not be published. You must publish them manually.

NOTE: If you only check only the [Allow automatic export to grades] setting after students have taken the quiz, and [Allow attempt to be set as graded immediately upon completion] was already checked, then you will NOT have to manually publish grades.

Quiz Grades Not Publishing to Gradebook

When changes are made to the Assessment tab of a quiz after student submissions are made, those changes will not apply to the existing submissions. The result is that the grades for the existing submissions will not be automatically published to the gradebook. In these cases, instructors must manually publish the existing quiz grades.

  2. Click the drop-down menu next to the quiz title, and then select Grade.
