You can download assessment responses for grading offline, including bulk downloading submissions to a File Upload question so you can easily access them from a single folder on your computer. For more information on entering assessment grades and comments, see the following articles:

The resulting spreadsheet lists the students' names, user names, number of the assessment submission (if multiple submissions were allowed), final scores, any Grader's comments you entered for students in the Total Scores screen, and the students' responses to each question. Note: Certain question types, such as File Upload questions and Audio Recording questions, which need to be graded within the Tests & Quizzes screen, will not be able to display answers in the spreadsheet.

Download all File Upload submissions.
