Currently, "multiple answer" problems on quizzes the total number of points is divided by the number of correct answers. Students are then awarded this fraction of points for selecting correct answers and penalized this fraction of points for selecting incorrect answers. We are requesting the ability to control the grading scheme for these types of problems. For example, one may want no penalization or a smaller percentage of points for certain incorrect responses.
Idea originates from Vincent Bonini and the Math Department at Cal Poly.
