Displaying marks for individual questions in an assignment

Jump to solution

Hi,

Is there an easy way to display not just the total marks of an assignment, but also the individual marks for each question in the assignment.

Thanks

If you use a rubric, you can assign a specific amount of points per question answered. As a student, I really appreciate it when an instructor has put the time into creating a great rubric with several descriptions of what is necessary to receive the points. For example, the question is worth 3 points, for 3 points "Great job! You included the correct definition and also applied the theory to your reflective experience!", 2 points "Good job, it is the correct definition, but you could reflect a little deeper. Try applying the theory to your own experiences." 1 point, "Well, you could definitely do better on this question. The definition is not quite there, and there was no reflection at all."

Students can see the rubric and find out what they can improve depending on how they got the answer wrong. If the student got a point off of every question, they would know they need to make their answers more reflective, for example. Hope this helps a bit!
