When using Edsby online testing with automatically-graded question types such as multiple choice and short answer, Edsby calculates each student's score and enters their score automatically in the gradebook. Usually this is a great way to save time, and exactly the right behavior.
Sometimes, though, you may want to manually adjust the automated scoring. By default the scores are locked-down in the gradebook and can't be changed.
After all students who are going to take the test have submitted it, edit the assessment and set the Online Submission from Online Test to None. The submitted tests and results will remain, and you'll now be able to edit the grades for any students you wish to within this assessment.

- Modifying student scores: The obvious benefit of being able to edit scores is that you can manually adjust for any situation where your judgement varies from the automated score assigned by Edsby.
- Extra credit: This approach can be used to allow students to earn "extra" points on a quiz. For example, if you want to allow students to earn up to 12 points out of 10 by providing extra questions they can get right, begin by creating a 12-point question sheet. After all students have finished, change the "out of" value from 12 to 10. Voila!
