New Quizzes: Partial Credit for Matching Questions

New Quizzes: Partial Credit for Matching Questions

(162)

In new quizzes, there needs to be the ability to award partial credit for matching questions. At the current moment, it is either all or nothing. I know you can "fudge" points at the end, but we need the ability to make each matching item worth points.

This feature has to be added to the new quizzes.   We are all using Canvas this year and the students should be given partial credit.  If they can match 9/10 problems correctly, they should earn a 9/10 instead of a zero.    The math teachers at my school would greatly appreciate having the settings give partial credit for matching questions.

Yes, please make this happen.

Folks, there is a problem when there are a ton of comments agreeing with a suggestion and only a small fraction have actually upvoted it. These systems are at least somewhat automated. Someone will be looking at the vote tally way before reading all of the individual comments.

If you want this suggestion to get some attention, please go to the top of the page and upvote.

Not actually sure how to "upvote". Can you clarify?

and... once I know how to "upvote", do I need to do so for every post on this topic?

Just upvote the topic itself. Go to the top of the page and look for the rating stars. Hover your mouse over it until you see five stars (or however many you want) and click.

Done. Thanks. Not a thing I do in other contexts 🙂 Appreciate it.

We need partial credit for all new quiz features. This means that categorisation, ordering and matching are all tools we now can't use.

How is this idea starter was posted 2 years ago and NO work has been done on this? Especially with how school has been since March?

@arm1990 Definitely!! I think one of the issues is that people are commenting but not "voting" on the idea (which I think is partially Canvas's fault because I don't think it's very clear that using the star rating is how you vote)

Please, please, please add this feature for multiple option question. No teacher in my building grades these types of questions as an all-or-nothing option. I'm afraid this will be a make-or-break feature for some of my teachers.

Where is the vote for this?! Why would Instructure not include this feature for the new quizzes when it is a feature in the classic quizzes. This needs to be put up for a vote immediately. Usually when you add new versions, it should include additional amazing features that makes you want to get rid of the old version. Unfortunately, because Canvas has not brought many of the vital features from classic quizzes into new quizzes, many teacher prefer not to use it! Which makes new quizzes such a waste!

Bring over partial credit into Matching, multiple answer, and any other question type that might be able to receive partial credit! 

I vote this up!!

This has been open for 2 years. How is it not resolved yet?

Yes Please.

How has this not been resolved in more than 2 years! 

I don't normally use matching questions, but have one concept well-suited to this format.  I did not discover Canvas would not give partial credit until students were in the middle of taking the quiz.  I gave this question a higher point value because of the number of terms tested.  The students were upset when they saw their grade on the quiz go down to 70% from missing just one match.  There is no point to having a matching exercise that doesn't give partial points.  I would have been better off creating separate multiple choice questions.

I'm on Zoom right now supporting yet another faculty member who is using matching. Matching is basically a partially developed feature with all or nothing scoring. The average user doesn't distinguish between actual bugs and a feature working as designed but inadequately. For that mass of users, this is simply a bug that makes this feature nearly unusable.

I would love to see this too, for matching, reordering, and multiple answers (partial credit without minus points). It looks like this is the most upvoted question on canvas and it seems trivial to implement, so I am surprised this is not in development or has an official reply from a canvas member describing why not.

Lame. Lame. LAME!!! 

Now that I have to go back and clean up this mess, I will not be using this feature again.

I realize two years might not be enough time to identify this issue and correct it <sarcasm>, but the least <very least> you could do is warn people when they setup a matching quiz.

Yes please! Add partial credit to "Categorization" and "Matching" problems!

I agree.  The way it is now makes grading very time consuming!
