Hi Christina,

The Short Answer/Essay question type in Sakai Tests & Quizzes unfortunately cannot be graded automatically. You will need to manually enter a score for each student who responded to the question. A quick way to see all the students with responses per question is to use the “Questions” view in test submissions. Here is a help guide on viewing student responses by question. Be sure to click the “Update” button periodically at the bottom of the page as you’re updating scores.

If you have additional tech questions about this, please send us a help request on
