When 1 answer is wrong in matching questions, students automatically get a zero

Jump to solution

When you use a matching question and the student had 1 or more combinations wrong, the score is zero.

Is this a bug?

-> the student should earn a point for each correct combination.

Hi @jo_hoornaert 

First, which version of the quizzing tool are you using?

For Classic Quizzes this guide, How do I create a matching quiz question?, states "Partial credit will be assigned if some of the blanks are completed correctly."

For New Quizzes this guide, How do I create a matching question in New Quizzes?, states  "When Matching questions are graded, students must get all matches correct to earn full points. There is not an option to assign partial credit for Matching questions."

This is my major beef against New Quizzes, it has not yet achieved useful parity with Classic quizzes. I do not know if you can switch back at your school, but switching is the only way you can automatically award partial credit.

You could create a new Idea Conversation for this functionality in this community.

Good luck,

Kelley
