1. Select a Grade category if desired.

Only if you have previously created categories on the Gradebook setup page, will some choices be available.

Select a Grade category if desired.

2. Set a Grade to pass.

The default for the Grade to pass is 0.00. The Grade to pass setting will allow you to automatically set a given activity to be marked as "Complete"; thus, allowing a student to go on to the next activity or resource.

The screenshot below shows a Grade to pass of 8.00. This would represent 80% of a 10-point quiz, as an example. So, the student would need 80% score to pass the quiz.

Set a Grade to pass.

The student's grade in the Grader report will display in red if it does not meet the Grade to pass. If it does meet the Grade to pass, it will be in green.

3. Set the allowed number of attempts.

For most uses for a Quiz activity, the Attempts allowed will be 1 because the activity is being used as a summative assessment. However, there are times when more than one attempt is desired, so use the dropdown to select the desired number of attempts.

Set the allowed number of attempts.

4. Select a Grading method.

Only if 2 or more attempts are allowed in the Attempts allowed field, would the Grading method field become active.

You can choose:

Highest grade will enter only the highest attempt in the gradebook. If the student takes multiple attempts, only the highest will display in the gradebook. All attempts will still be shown in the Quiz Results page.

Average grade will average the score of the attempts and report that score to the gradebook.

First attempt will only record the first attempt in the gradebook. However, all of the attempts will still be recorded in the Quiz Results page.

Last attempt will record only the score of the latest attempt in the gradebook whether it is the highest or not.

Select a Grading method.
