If a quiz includes any auto evaluated questions (like multiple-choice, true/false, fill in the bank, one word and match the following questions), those questions will be automatically graded. If the assessment includes any open-ended questions (i.e. short answer or subjective), those questions must be manually graded by the instructor. When you are finished manually grading open-ended questions, you can publish the marks so that learners can view their marks and grades.
This article will guide you on:
1. On the home page, hover your cursor over the required classroom and click Materials.
2. Materials page is the place where you will see all lessons and assessments clubbed together and categorized into different sections. Click View attempts button of the required quiz.
3. This table shows the list of all the learners along with their submissions status.
2. Click View Attempts link shown next to each learner's name to view the submission made by that learner.
3. You will see the number of questions answered and the total time taken by the learner to finish the quiz, on learner's view submission page.
In case the learner has submitted the quiz without answering any of the question, then a label will be shown to indicate the same on the corresponding question(s).
4. By default, Teamie considers learner's most recent attempt for grading.
5. Click the Attempts drop-down to view earlier attempts made by the learner.
6. You may also navigate to other learner's submission by clicking on the learner's drop-down at the top left corner and then selecting the required learner's name from auto populated list.
A tick mark is added infront of learners to indicate that their attempts have already been reviewed. This means that you will be able to view the learners whose attempts you have not yet reviewed from the dropdown itself and quickly navigate through them.
7. Alternatively, you can click the Next icon to view next learner's submission, available for grading.
The learner attempts page also had navigation icons for the next and previous learners attempt. Indicators are also present to show if the next or previous learners attempt is already reviewed or is pending for review. This is done with the help of a tool tip that will show the review status of the next/previous learners attempt.
Furthermore, if a learner is already reviewed, their next or previous navigation icons background color will be changed to indicate the same.
8. After you have navigated to the required learner's submission page, (either by selecting learner's name from drop-down list or using previous / next icon), you would be taken to that learner's submission page.
9. Click Previous icon in case you wish to view previous learner's submission.
Instructors can manually override the auto-grading done for individual quiz questions. All types of questions added in a Teamie quiz are auto-graded, except the open-ended questions. The questions are auto-graded by the system as per the answers added by the instructors while creating them.
However useful, there might be cases where the learner(s) have answered a question in a way that was not added by the instructor, but should still be considered as correct. So, in that case, the system will auto-grade their answer as incorrect. An example of this can be the case where learners use a plural form and the instructor had only entered singular as the correct answer. You can mark an already auto-graded question as right or wrong. You can also assign partial marking for a question that is auto-graded as wrong. Let's se how to do this.
2. Hover over a graded question in a learners submission. If a quiz question has been auto-graded as wrong, then you will see the Mark as Right option.
3. Clicking the Mark as Right button will allot full marks to the learner for that question. Take note that the answers provided by the learner will not change, just the score will be overridden. A help text under the updated score will be shown to inform users that the scores have been overridden and the received quiz scores will be updated for the learner accordingly.
4. Similarly, if required, an instructor can mark a question as wrong for a question that was auto-graded as correct. Once a question is marked as wrong, 0 marks will be allotted to the learner and a help text will inform the overriding information.
5. In addition to the aforementioned, there might be scenarios where instructors would want to provide a percentage of the available marks for the incorrect answers. An example being the use of a synonym by a learner instead of the actual word as expected by the instructor. To cater such cases, you can edit the score of a quiz question and assigning partial marks for it.
Click the Edit Score button and assign the partial score for a question.
6. Only the score from 0 to the questions maximum score can be added while editing the score. Although, you can also edit the score in decimal if it lies in the aforementioned score range.
The partial scoring will not change the status of the Answered correct stats for the quiz. This means that the questions will still be considered as Wrong/Right as per the auto-grading, only the score will be updated for the learner. A help text will inform users that the original score has been overridden. Learners will get notifications when their scores get updated due to any of the aforementioned changes.
The score change entry will also be added in the classroom's Activity Stream.
7. In case you change the score for a question, then for those learners who have already made an attempt, the scores will be proportionally updated. This will include the question whose scores have been manually overridden. Learners will get notifications informing them about the updated quiz scores.
You can view question level statistics of each question in the Statistics tab.
1. On the View attempts page of the quiz, click Statistics tab.
2. As an instructor, you would be able to see each learner's progress at question level who have made submission(s) to the quiz. By default, questions are shown in default order (the order in which questions were created by the instructor).
3. Click Sort by difficulty drop-down field to sort the results by Easiest First and table content will be reorganized accordingly. Easiest questions are the ones that majority of learners get right.
4. Similarly, click Sort by difficulty drop-down field to sort the results by Toughest First and table content will be reorganized accordingly. Toughest questions are the ones that majority of learners get wrong.
5. As an instructor, you may apply filters to sort the results as per your requirement. Please read this article "Applying filters" for more information.
6. The greyed out dot represents that the open ended question is yet to be reviewed and graded.
7. Click View link to view the learner's submission from Statistics page and grade the open ended questions which are pending for review.
8. The x icon represents that learner answered the question(s) incorrectly.
9. The tick mark icon represents that learner answered the question(s) correctly.
10. In case the learner has achieved a partial score for their attempts, the Partially Right icon will be shown for the corresponding quiz question(s).
'Partially Right' signifies that the learner has achieved a score that is greater than '0' but less that the maximum score. This could have happened due to partial marking through auto grading or an instructor may have given some score that’s less than the maximum score.
11. You may see the question's overview by clicking on the pie chart. A pop up appear which shows the following stats:
- Question text and its point
- Number of learners who answered the question right/wrong/partially right (in percentages)
- Highest point
- Avg. time spent by a learner to answer the question
- Lowest and Avg. point
Point here represents marks allotted for each question. This term may vary from client to client.
12. Click View Classroom Performance to view each learner's statistics at a question level. This helps in viewing a question's statistics for all the learners at a glance.
13. Clicking View Classroom Performance button will take you to the Question Statistics page. This is the overview page showing how the class is doing for a particular question. Here, you can find out the list of learners who got the answer right/wrong/partially right along with their marks information.
In case of Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) and Match the Following (MTF) questions, Response Distribution statistics will also be shown in addition to aforementioned information.

2. On the learner's view submission page, you can see the number of questions answered and how many of them were correctly answered along with the total time taken by the learner to attempt the quiz.
3. Go through learner's attempt before considering an attempt for grading.
4. By default the latest attempt will be considered for grading. In case, you wish to consider any of the earlier attempt made by that learner for grading, then click the Attempts drop-down and select the attempt of your choice. Then tick mark Consider this attempt for grading checkbox.
5. The selected attempt would be considered for grading.
In case, as an instructor, you have enabled the 'Consider attempt with the highest score for grading' setting for the quiz, the learners' attempt with the highest score will be auto considered for grading, regardless of when it was made and you will not be able to set any other attempt to be considered for grading.
1. On the submissions listing page, click View Attempts link shown next to the learner's name to view the submission(s) made by that learner.
2. Go through the learner's attempt. The score will be assigned automatically by the system for all the objective questions.
By default, the latest attempt is considered for grading. Although, as per requirement, you can select any attempt to be considered for grading, in case learner has made more than one attempt.
You can quickly switch between different learners' submissions for the quiz from the learner's name drop-down or the left or right learner name handles.
3. If the quiz includes any open-ended question(s), those would need to be manually graded by you (the instructor).
4. Enter the score for each open ended question. The moment you enter score for each open ended question, the total Mark will be updated automatically.
5. If a non-scoring rubric is attached to the quiz, you can grade learners based on the rubric criteria. Click the Rubric button to grade learning's attempt using the attached rubric. The scales does not update the score as the rubric and the scales are to provide feedback rather than score. This is because only a non-scoring rubrics can be attached to a quiz.
6. As an instructor you can give feedback on learners' submission in the form of textual comments, audio recording, document, video, and audio attachments. Furthermore, you can add a comment on a specific rubric's criteria if a rubric is attached to the assignment.
To add textual feedback, enter text in the Enter your comment here text box.
By default, feedback comment(s) added by you, as an instructor, would be visible to the learners.
You can also tag quiz question in the comments to give question specific comment by typing 'q' and then selecting the question or typing the question number directly. For example, 'q6'.
7. Click the microphone icon to record audio comment. You can also add textual content along with the audio recording, if required.

15. Clicking the attachments will allow the user to view the attachment.
16. By default, comment(s) added by you, as an instructor, would be visible to the learners. Click Unpublish Rubric & Comments in order to unpublish the comments and rubric feedback (if any) and make it unavailable for learners to see. This setting is independent of publishing scores, i.e., you can choose to keep the feedback published without choosing to publish the scores and vice versa.
Comments will be organized chronologically, older comments would be appearing at the top and recent comments would be appearing at the bottom.
In case a non-scoring rubric is attached to the quiz, the selected scales will be published along with the feedback (comments), by default. This way learners can get the rubric feedback to improve on their submission and make another attempt, if available.
As an instructor, once you have graded learner's submission, next step would be to publish their score.
1. Click View attempts button of the required quiz to see the list of learners along with their submission status.
The label "1 yet to mark" shows the number of submission(s) pending for grading.
2. Click the Publish Mark button of the corresponding learner. Once the mark is published, that learner would be able to see the marks (score) on the "View my attempts" page.
3. Repeat step 2 to publish other learner's marks whose submission(s) have been reviewed and graded.
4. Click Unpublish Mark button to unpublish marks.
In case, an instructor has created a quiz and allowed learners to make multiple attempts (for example, learner can make up to 5 attempts) to the quiz. Now, let's assume, a learner made first three attempts and yet has the chance to make another two attempts. In the meantime, as an instructor, you have graded any of the learners attempt and published their marks, then learners will not be able to retake the quiz even when the maximum number of attempts value is not yet reached, because once marks are published, learners can not make any attempt.
To allow learners to make another attempt, you may just grade learner's submission and also may add feedback on any of the attempt made so far, but you should not publish their marks. This will allow learners to retake the quiz after seeing instructor's feedback and then you may consider the recent attempt for final evaluation, grade it and publish the marks.
2. On the submissions listing page, you would see a field "Select to do bulk operations", tick mark this checkbox.
3. Selecting this checkbox will invoke the bulk operation actions like Publishing and Unpublishing marks, Publishing and Unpublishing feedback, Removing attempts and Sending reminder.
4. All learners are selected by default when bulk operation actions are invoked.

1. On the submissions listing page of the quiz, select the learners whose feedback needs to be published, then click the Publish feedback button.
2. Click Yes, Publish to confirm and publish the feedback for the selected learners. Else, click No, cancel to go back.
3. Clicking Yes, publish will initiate the feedback publishing process.
4. A confirmation message appears stating that the feedback have been published for the selected learners.
5. To unpublish the feedback, select the learners, then click the Unpublish feedback button.
1. On the submissions listing page of the quiz,, select the learners whose attempts you wish to remove and then click the Remove attempts button.
2. Click Yes, remove to confirm and remove all attempts made by the learner(s). Else, click No, cancel to go back.
In case, you wish to remove a single attempt of a learner, then read this article "Removing a single attempt of a learner" for more information.
3. Once you confirm, system starts removing the selected learner(s) attempts.
4. A confirmation message appears stating the learner(s) attempts have been removed.
As an instructor, you may need to remind learner(s) sometime to make the submission to the quiz, if they have not yet started or have kept their submission in draft mode, before the deadline. However, as an instructor, you may have several other cases where you want to send an email to a group of learners regarding the submission even after they have made an attempt - a common one being the instructor requiring a particular group of learners to reattempt the quiz. So, you can do that too, i.e, send email to group of learners who have already made an attempt by using this feature. Let's see how to do this.
1. On the submissions listing page of the quiz, select the learner(s) who needs to be reminded and then click the Send reminder button.
2. In the Send Email template, add your response in the text box below.
3. Click Send Email button to send the email for the selected learner(s).
As an instructor, you have the option to send a copy of the reminder to all the instructors in that classroom. This is similar to how we use the CC option while sending an email to keep the recipients in loop. Click the Send a copy to instructors checkbox to send a copy of the reminder to all the instructors in that classroom
This can be very handy in case a classroom has more than one instructor as all of them would be informed when a reminder is sent to the learners. Furthermore, this can be used as a record keeping tool by instructors as they would have an email record of when they have sent the reminder and to whom. For instance, an instructor can now have a record that a certain number of reminders were sent to learners before their marks were deducted for late submission.
As an instructor, you can also choose to send the learner notifications to their parents as well. This will be practically cc'ing the parents on learners notification and keeping them apprised.
Note: This is an optional feature and can be enabled on your Teamie site on request.
1. On the submissions listing page of the quiz, click Download Attempts button to download all the learners submissions.
2. Downloading submissions process starts.
3. Once the download submissions process is completed, click to open and extract the .zip file in your local system.
4. Once the .zip folder is extracted, you may open it to view the submissions details of each learner. If any attachments are present in the learners' submissions, then folders will be present with their naming containing those attachments. Else, only a consolidated Submissions PDF will be present for the submission details of all learners at one place.
In case, if a quiz is shared with multiple classrooms, then system will create that many folders after .zip is extracted for respective classrooms. Navigate to the required folder to view learners submission.
5. The consolidated PDF file will have the submission details of all learners at one place. Open the submissions pdf file to view each learner's submission who have already made the submission to the quiz.
The folders, created by learner's name will contain the file submissions made by the learners to the quiz. In case, no file submission is made by a learner, no folder will be created for that learner.
Note: Youtube links and Google drive documents are not downloaded.
We also have a site-level setting to hide individual user's attempt details in the PDF export of the assessment which can be enabled be from our end. If this setting is enabled, the submissions.pdf will not contain individual attempt details and will just be a summary table of all the users. Any uploaded attachments will continue to be present in the folders labelled with the learner name (along with a question number for a quiz).
