New Quizzes: Add ability to award partial credit for some numerical answers

0 Kudos
(2)

In New Quizzes, you can choose to award different points to different multiple choice questions.

Please add this functionality to numeric questions. Most student mistakes are predictable in advance, so it is easy to come up with a set of wrong answers that are still deserving of partial credit.

Rated 5 stars! @boylermaker , our institution's faculty are seeking to define partial-credit ranges, and even partial-credit formulas, for Numerical questions.

Yes, please!!! I often use numeric answers with a tolerance range. It has happened that a student was 0.01 away from the tolerance and was marked completely wrong (we found it and I changed it manually). It would be nice to define a tolerance with two boundaries:

  • A score inside the first boundary would earn full credit
  • A score inside the second boundary would earn partial credit on a prorated basis
  • A score outside the second boundary would earn no credit.

@tonatiuh_rodrig, I really like your two-boundaries suggested approach!
