Will this work? Auto Grading Extra Credit
I have a faculty member with 280 students who uses the point system (versus weighted) and she wants her extra-credit quiz to be auto graded. Is there a reason I can't just add an assignment grade column to make up the difference? For example, I would create a grade column worth 20 points using 'set default grade' to make up for the 10 point quiz. 10 points to get back to zero and 10 points to make up for the quiz. This way any points added via the quiz would be extra. Also, this method would only take a couple minutes to setup. I tested it in Gradebook (20 out of 10) and it seems to work fine. Am I missing something?
