Grace Points on Quizzes

When I was an undergrad, one of my English professors set up his quizzes the following way:

  • Quizzes were worth 10 points
  • Each question was worth 2 points
  • There were six questions

From the above, you can see there were 12 points possible on a 10-point quiz. The remaining two points were not bonus--there was a hard cap of ten points on any quiz. But the idea was that you could miss one question and still get a perfect score.

When I first started teaching, and used paper quizzes, I ran mine the same way. It's easy to do with pen and paper.

But is there any way to achieve this in the Canvas quizzes, either old or new?

Per Greydon's comment, it can't be done--not through the automated systems. I can do it manually by altering/fudging the grades, but I was hoping for something I could set and forget and didn't have to babysit.
