Viewing the Quiz Event Log

Pilot allows you to view events that occur during a student’s quiz attempt. You can see the time the quiz was started, whether the student logged on and off during the quiz time period, which questions were answered and saved, and when the student submitted the quiz for grading. You also have the option of viewing the IP address from which the student took the quiz.

To view a student’s quiz event log, choose Grade from the quiz content menu.



Under the student’s name, click on the attempt that you want to view.

Submitting Final Grades in Pilot

STEP 1: Converting to a Letter Grade Scheme

In order to submit your Final Grades through Pilot, the final percentage scores in your Gradebook have to be converted to letter grades.

0% – 59% = F

60% – 69% = D

70% – 79% = C

80% – 89% = B

90% – 100% = A

If you use different values in your course, click on Schemes and select New Scheme to create your own.
