Low stakes quizzes?

Jump to solution

I am slowly navigating my way through Quizzes.Next and am not seeing the answer to this question.  

  • In Canvas Quizzes, we often create low stakes quizzes by valuing questions as .1 points or .25 points.  Will partial points be possible in Quizzes.Next? 
  • Or is the solution to set the points possible in the "Assignment" to be small and use 1 point per question in Quizzes.Next?

Thanks!

Hi  @kroeninm ‌,

Partial credit for multiple answer questions isn't available yet in Quizzes.Next, but you can set the point possible for any question type to be worth less than one point by simply typing the decimal number in the points field when creating/editing a question. 

Quizzes.Next points possible

You might also find the Vary Points by Answer feature of multiple choice questions helpful. This question type can have only one correct answer, but you can award students different amounts of points (or even negative points) based on their selected answer.

Thanks  @RebeccaMoulder ‌ that's exactly what I was looking for.  The .75 wasn't working for me. It's a little glitchy but now I can get it to work if I exit the box and go back into it or type the 0 in front of the .

It's also a nice feature with the LTI that I can create a quiz worth any value but then set the assignment to be worth 5 points and it will calculate down.  But that is always a bit confusing when looking at question by question results.
