The Case Against Zeros in Grading -- make them more mathematically fair
Our school policy is to give no score less than 50%. In other words "Missing" work or low scoring work would be recorded no lower than 50%. It is still failing, but this makes it easier for their grade to recover.
On Canvas, I can set the "missing" to 50%, but I am still trying to figure out how to do it for low scoring items other than manually.
I am hoping to find a way to annotate this adjustment without the misunderstanding about marginal success when the actual score would have been much less.
- Can a minimum score be calculated behind the scenes on Canvas?
- Could there be an asterisk or something next to the adjusted scores?
