Partial Credit for Matching Questions in Quizzes.Next

Partial Credit for Matching Questions in Quizzes.Next

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.

We need this for matching, as well as multiple answer, categorization, and ordering.  It kind of defeats the purpose of having self-graded questions if teachers have to go back through and check each one to adjust points--many teachers just won't use them because it's a major nuisance.  These are great question types, but in the classroom (and even on standardized tests), students can earn partial credit.  I'd like to see Canvas grading more reflect how most teachers grade assignments.

This is a no-brainer and thanks for bringing it up. Who ever heard of getting all or nothing for a 10 point matching question? I was so excited when I learned about quizzes.next, and all the cool question types, until I learned that each question was all or nothing. And this is a total deal breaker. Sorry to see such a potentially great tool go unused.

Can this one be amended for all of the ones Lindsey mentioned???

Its such a hard sell to my faculty now that they realized its all or nothing..

Yes. yes yes yes yes.

Students that I work with recently memorized the South American countries and their capitals.
Had to do 2 separate matching groups on quizzes.next.

Got 0/10 because for each group they missed one of the matching.

Yes Please!

I had a 30 point categories question.  If the kids missed just on item, then they got a 0/30.  Thankfully I was just using it for practice, and not for credit.

Absolutely. I don't understand why it isn't that way, because (I think) the legacy quiz editor automatically gives fractional partial credit if the number of marks and number of questions aren't evenly divisible. 

The Quizzes.Next quizzes *look* a bit more modern and responsive than the legacy ones did, but they aren't really a functionality upgrade yet.

Partial credit on matching questions (or any item with multiple "steps)" must be a must. Without it, it basically renders those question types useless.

The lack of this feature is the reason I have not been using quiz.next and have still been using the old form. I would rather use a different platform entirely than have a student get 0 on a 20 point question because they answered one question incorrectly.

Just as a cross reference (that I'm not seeing here, surprisingly), please see https://community.canvaslms.com/people/Gideon.Williams@britishschool.nl/blog/2018/12/09/13-features-... . I will cross-reference this idea there as well.
