Grade and Return a Quiz

There are two ways to grade and return a quiz with Google Forms. If the quiz contains all true/false or multiple choice questions with definitive answers, you can set it to grade the quiz and release the results immediately. If there are questions you need to assess, like in this quiz here, you'll have to manually grade those questions, then return the quiz.
