View Grade for a Document Assessment

Based on the settings your instructor used when scheduling the Document Assessment, the grade might be set to be a practice attempt meaning that the score is not included in your final grade. If more than one attempt is allowed, your instructor might specify that the highest grade, the average grade of all attempts, or the first or last attempt is used to calculate your total grade.
