How do I enable teaching assistants to grade Tests & Quizzes?
Instructors can grant Teaching Assistants permission to grade Tests & Quizzes within a course site by completing the following steps.
For information on teaching assistants permissions for other Sakai tools refer to How do I manage permissions for teaching assistants?
Configure your Sakai site.
Complete the configuration steps that follow below.

Add a new section to site
Go to Section Info on the side toolbar and click Add Sections.
Select one section of category Lecture then click the Add Sections.
(The default settings for all the other section options displayed can be left as is.)
Assign your teaching assistants and students to the new section
Select Assign TAs and Assign Students to add them to the new section

Hide the Section tool
Hide the tool from your students. Go to Site Info on the tool sidebar and click Tool Order.

Add newly enrolled students
After this initial configuration, if new students later enroll in your course you will need to revisit the Section Info tool and manually assign the new students to the section you created. This will ensure your TAs have access to the new students’ Tests and Quizzes for grading.
