You can grade quizzes by question or by individual. For example, you might prefer to grade all answers to a specific question at once. Or perhaps you want to grade an individual’s entire quiz.

In this section, you learn how to:

Grade by response


Some questions need to be graded manually, like short answer or paragraph formats. To grade faster and reduce potential bias, you can grade by question. This is because identifying information doesn’t appear by default. You’ll see all the answers for a particular question at once.

Note: You can’t grade by question for grid-type questions.

  1. In a quiz, click Responsesand thenQuestion.
  2. Mark each response as Correct "" or Incorrect "". You can assign partial or extra credit points by entering them in the rightmost field. If you want to give feedback, click Add feedback and enter details.
  3. When you’re done grading all responses for a question, click Save.
  4. To move between questions, click Previous "" or Next "".

Grade by question

Grade by respondent


You can grade an individual’s entire set of quiz responses at once.

  1. In a quiz, click Responsesand thenIndividual.
  2. For each question (except grid-type questions, which aren’t graded), take any of the following actions:
    • In the rightmost field, enter how many points the response earned.
      Questions that have been graded automatically are assigned the maximum number of points for a correct answer, and zero points for an incorrect answer. If you want to override these values, you can.
    • (Optional) Click Add individual feedback. Enter your feedback and click Save.
      If you already specified feedback, it will be overridden.
  3. To save all changes, click Save.
  4. To move between individuals, click Previous "" or Next "".

Add individual feedback

Note: If you disable the quiz setting on a form, any grading settings and manual grades you added won’t be available if you decide to re-enable the quiz setting later. You can access these manual grades by using Google Takeout. If you’d like to permanently delete these manual grades, you can delete the form or individual responses. Modifying the manual grades will also overwrite any previous versions for that response.
