New Quizzes: Partial Credit for Matching Questions

New Quizzes: Partial Credit for Matching Questions

This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

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.

Matching questions include the option to select partial credit, similar to the Multiple Answer questions. Partial credit is the default option for this question type. This change allows instructors to award partial points for partially correct matching questions through auto grading. 

For more information, please read through the  Canvas Release Notes (2022-01-15).

We need it for Categorization questions too.

What about categorization questions? Or ordering questions? This is seriously ridiculous. You took the time to code which are answered correctly and which aren't, but you didn't put in the partial credit? That doesn't benefit anyone! Not the student who instead is discouraged because they earn a 0 on the question and not the instructor who then has to waste time going back to fix Canvas' mistake. We've been asking for this to be fixed for over 3.5 years.
