    The Complete/Incomplete grading feature seems ideal for use on bonus assignments, but there is no way to specify how many bonus points a student should get.  I would like to have the ability to specify that a Complete/Incomplete assignment is worth 0 points (i.e. it's a bonus) but that a student should get x number of points if the assignment is marked complete.

     

    As it currently stands, if a Complete/Incomplete assignment is marked as 10 points, then the student receives 10 points for Complete & 0 for Incomplete.  But because the assignment is worth 10 points, it is counting toward the grade.

     

    On the other hand, if you make the assignment worth 0 points, so that an Incomplete does not count against the student (which is the definition of "bonus") then a Complete will add 0 points to the score, which isn't helpful.

     

    If we could specify the number of points a student should receive for a Complete, while still specifying that the assignment is worth 0 points to the total grade, then using Complete/Incomplete assignments would make our bonuses so much easier to handle!
