Accessing & Grading Quiz Tasks

by Hong Chau

Skilljar quizzes allow manually or automatically graded Free form response questions. If a question requires an instructor to manually grade their response, you can do this from the Skilljar Dashboard.

You can access open tasks from three locations:

  • Review all open tasks from Students and then the Tasks tab
  • Review individual open tasks from the email sent to your Organization notification Email (sent from support@skilljar.com) which provides a link to view that task in the dashboard
  • Review individual tasks on a student level
