Go to ‘Settings’ and then toggle on the radio button for ‘Make this a Quiz’ as:
After enabling the quiz on our form, we have to set up more settings for respondents to release grades and other settings after submission or at a later time with markings of each question.
Here, we are selecting the settings for releasing grades after a manual review by the form owner or collaborators as:
We also turned on the radio button for missed questions for the respondents.
We can also set marks for each question so that we don’t have to assign points on each question manually. We will scroll down (swiping our phone) and provide the further settings for the quiz as:
