Quick grading allows you to enter a grade and a feedback comment directly on the grading screen that displays all submissions. If you are providing a mark/grade and brief text-based feedback AND you have relatively low numbers of students, then quick grading is a good option. If you wish to provide a more detailed or formatted feedback comment consider using the individual marking form.
