quiz as extra credit without work around?

Jump to solution

HI: Is there an update that will permit using the quiz function as extra credit? I've searched answers and people have offered work around (ie convert quiz results to an assignment and manually add in the points earned from the quiz etc). Is there a direct way to make the quiz base zero and then any score the student earns is extra credit (ie 5/0)?  No matter how I explain it, students will see the base of 5 and email saying that it isn't counting as extra credit. thank you.

Hi  @ssulliv ‌

There is no function like this in the current quizzing engine, but here is the easiest work-round - add all your question and make each item worth zero points, then when grading add the desired number of points for each correct answer.

I  also might mention that I do not yet see this as a feature for Quizzes,Next. You can join the many folks who have asked for this at https://community.canvaslms.com/groups/quizzes?sr=search&searchId=4081f5a2-21cb-4a76-a2e7-6275572919...

I hope this helps,

Hello there,  @ssulliv ...

I have been reviewing older questions here in the Canvas Community, and I stumbled across your question.  I wanted to check in with you because I noticed that we have not heard back from you since you first posted this question on April 19, 2018.  It looks like  @kmeeusen  replied to you later that day.  Have you had an opportunity to review Kelley's feedback?  Did his feedback help to answer your question?  Or, are you still looking for some help with your question about quizzes and extra credit?  If you feel that Kelley has helped to answer your question, please feel free to mark his response as "Correct".  however, if you are still looking for some assistance with this question from Community members, please come back to this topic to post a message below so that someone might be able to assist you.  For now, I am going to mark your question as "Assumed Answered" because we've not heard back from you in almost five months and because there hasn't been any new activity in this topic for the same amount of time.  However, that won't prevent you or others from posting additional questions and/or comments below that are related to this topic.  I hope that's alright with you, Sherry.  Looking forward to hearing back from you soon.
