Categorization Question Scoring

Jump to solution

Is there a way to set categorization questions to award partial credit similar to how multiple answer questions can receive partial credit?  It seems to me that if there are 5 options to sort, and a student categorizes 4 of them correctly, that answer should not be scored as a 0.

Hi  @jmattern ‌,

The ability to award partial credit to a categorization question is not built but is planned for the future development.

I'm glad to hear it.  Thank you for the reply.

Just wanted to follow up on this; I saw someone else had this same question back in August, and the feature was not available.  Is there still a plan to implement this?

I just ran a preview with a time limit of 30 seconds and left one answer blank. The result is a grade of zero, which doesn't make sense because I should have gotten a score of 20/21.

Is applying partial credit for Categorization questions still not available after almost 3 years later?
