Schoology Self-Paced Course Self-Graded Quizzes

Self-Paced courses (with the exception of “Beta” courses) include self-graded quizzes for each week or chapter of a course.  These quizzes are self-graded, meaning that the Schoology platform automatically grades answers without needing parent review (though your parent may wish to review and alter the grade as they see fit).

The self-graded quiz is represented by the icon below:


Quiz Overview

Once you’ve located and opened a quiz (in the same way you locate an assignment, but instead look for the green quiz icon), you will be brought to a page with a “Start New Attempt Button”, which will allow you to begin the quiz.


Quizzes will have the following settings:

  • One quiz attempt
  • Question formats:  The quiz will consist of one or more of six types of questions, as outlined in the Question Types section below.
  • The ability to review your questions before submitting your answers:  You will be allowed to review all of your answers on a review page before submitting your quiz, as outlined in the section below.
  • The ability to see your answers after submitting your answers, along with the correct answers:  You will be allowed to see your answers, along with the correct answers (showing you which questions you answered incorrectly), after you submit your quiz.  This is outlined in the section below.
  • Allotted time for quiz completion:  In most courses, you will not have timed quizzes.  However, you may run across some quizzes that do have time limits.  If this is the case, you will see a count-down timer to the bottom right side of your browser window.


Self-Graded Quiz Question Types

The original self-graded quiz format contains 5 different question formats that you may encounter.  An example of each is shown in the drop-down list below.  Click the name of the question type to view additional information, including screenshots.

Note: Some of the answers in the examples below are deliberately incorrect!


Reviewing Questions before Submitting Answers

Your teacher may allow you to review your answers before submitting your quiz.  If this is the case, you will see a “Review Answers” button once you’ve answered the questions.


The next page will bring up the quiz’s questions with the answers that you selected.

Note: The blue check marks are only to show which answers you selected – they are not indicative of whether or not your answers are correct.


Once you’ve reviewed and made any edits to your answers, you can submit them for grading.  Schoology will ask you to confirm the submission.


Reviewing Answers after Submitting a Quiz

You will be able to review your answers and the correct answers, showing you which questions you answered incorrectly (if any), after you’ve submitted a quiz.

To view your quiz/assessment submission, open the quiz, then navigate to the “My Submissions” tab.  Click the “View Assessment” link to the right side of the page.


Once you open the assessment, you can review the answers you submitted.  The example below shows correct answers to those answered incorrectly.  Question 5 gives partial credit because some of the answers are correct; partial credit may or may not be allowed on quizzes.
