How does a student's quiz get submitted when it is marked "in progress" and the quiz has closed?

Sometimes students do not successfully submit their quiz because they have missed the final click in the submission process.  If this happens and the quiz closes, then the quiz remains in progress and the student cannot go back and submit it properly.  In order for the quiz to be graded it needs to be submitted.  The solution is for the instructor to submit the quiz for the student.

1.  Go to the quiz and select 'Grade'
