You can now flexibly grade higher-order thinking responses for all open-ended question types on Quizizz. You can evaluate open-ended answers and provide a scaled grade that best matches students' answers by assigning a score manually. Grading on a scale allows for evaluating answers to comprehension, opinion-based, and discussion-oriented questions; you can make accurate assessments of students' understanding of qualitative topics and concepts.

You can manually grade student responses with 6 different question types that Quizizz offers: Multiple Choice Questions, Draw, Open-ended, Fill-in-the-Blanks, Audio, and Video responses. Your evaluation and feedback with these question types provide involvement in students' learning process; they also get the opportunity to gain a deeper insight into their own learning.

To enable Flexible Grading on Quizizz, follow these steps:

  1. Create a quiz or bulk import questions from millions of quizzes from the Quizizz library
  2. Set your required points while you are creating a question or editing an imported question
  3. 5 points are tagged to a question type by default. The range is Ungraded (0) to maximum (20) points for all question types 
  4. Once you create the quiz, save and assign it as a live quiz (in classic or instructor-paced modes) or assign it as homework
  5. Access post quiz reports once your students have completed the quiz from the 'Reports' tab
  6. Click on the 'Question' tab and click on 'Score Responses' on the right
  7. As a student has already participated in the quiz, you can manually grade with a customized score by clicking a score from the drop-down. The maximum points to select from the reports will be the same as the points which were set while creating the quiz.

  8. Once you manually grade all questions with customized scores, click on the 'Overview' tab to check for questions with asterisks. These are the questions that have been manually graded

  9. All manually graded customized scores are automatically updated on your preferred LMS. There is no need for you to redo this on the LMS reports

    Reports on Longitudinal Graphs will also reflect the manually graded quizzes for student performance within class reports.
