Buzz Activity Grader Overview

 6.  Filter by group


Within Tools you can:

  • Return all scores: Returning scores submits save-as-draft scores for this activity, making them visible ty students.
  • Stop accessing submissions: This ensures the activity’s due date is right now or earlier, and it disables late submissions.
  • Curve Scores: This specified score becomes the new max score for this activity, and all scores are scaled to it.
  • Batch update scores: This allows you to auto-fill scores, excuse, or allow retries by batch selection.

NOTE: You may also see Clear as an optional fourth tab under Batch update scores.

  • Enter printed-assessment answers: This allows you to submit answers for a student who has opened and printed their assessment.
  • Go to editor: This will open the activity in the editor view where you can adjust settings and more.


Begin by determining which entries to auto-fill.

NOTE:  Selected (which only appears if you select student checkboxes selected prior to opening the Batch update scores tool) applies the New score to only the students you.

Next, enter the New score value.

Then, check Return scores to students and/or Allow retry for the activity.

IMPORTANT: If you apply a New score and allow retry, both actions will take place.

Once complete, click UPDATE.


This feature allows you to only apply retries to a set of students in bulk.

Similar to the AUTO-FILL SCORES tab, you will determine which entries will receive the action.

REMEMBER:  Selected will only appear if you select student checkboxes prior to opening the Batch update scores tool.

NOTE: Applying ALLOW RETRY on an activity with an expired due date will prompt you to modify the due date for that group.

Once complete, click UPDATE.
