Edit Assessment Details

To remove this assessment from final grade calculations, click the Do not count this assignment towards the final grade checkbox .
The points possible set on the assignment details page is the total points possible for the assessment. Points set per question determine points earned for correct answers. Points earned for correct answers are totaled and divided by the sum of the total question points for the quiz. That percentage is then used to calculate the final score based on the total points set on the assignment details page. For example, if you set the total points on the assignment details page to 50 and create an assessment with 10 questions each worth 1 point, the quiz has a total of 10 points but is worth 50 points when graded. If a student answers 9 questions correctly, their quiz score is 90% (9/10). However, their final score in the Gradebook will be 45/50 (90%).
In the Assign To field , select who will be required to take the assessment. You can assign the assessment to individual students or sections.
In the Due field , select the assessment due date.
In the Available from and Until fields , select the availability dates for the assessment. In progress quizzes will automatically submit when the Until date and time passes.
Note: If you have set section override dates in your course, you may need to select a course section and set due and availability dates that fall within the section override dates.
