I have a quiz which contains 14 questions, each worth an equal value of 1. How do I get the points awarded for the quiz to be a maximum of 10 points instead of 14 points?

Thank you for responding.

This is a workaround, but not very satisfying. It should be a simple computer code programming change to provide the option of selecting the point value of a quiz no matter how many questions. Having to do the work around means if I add or delete questions I have to recalculate the point value; something that seems pretty silly.

Hey John Watson -

I understand that frustration. Thankfully, this is not the way the new Quizzes.Next functions, so the new tool will remove this current frustration.

Sorry to intrude on this question, Erin Keefe--but how exactly does that work? (I'm not a beta tester for Quizzes.Next.) That page you link to shows point total for a quiz, but also (further down, under

**Edit Question**) inputting a point value for an individual question. Does one override the other?- 5 people found this helpful
Hi Ken Black! Great question!

Shout out to my colleague Nicholas Demas who did some testing on this...and what he found is that the assessment point value overrides the individual question point value in Quizzes.Next. We wanted to add that this is

Thanks for that information, Erin Keefe! I tried looking through the documentation and could not find that, so I appreciate the information. (And yes, I know things may still change!)

Hi Erin,

I noticed this discussion in my inbox. It's really interesting because I did anticipate that an instructor may have an issue with basing the quiz total on points assigned to individual questions. I have not heard of the*Quizzes LTI*or*Quizzes.Next*before, and I'm not sure what the difference is. I saw that in our environment these are currently not available.

So I'm wondering if these are something we'd set up from eduappcenter, or if they are features and just not pushed out yet. Is there any way I can find some more info on Quizzes LTI or Quizzes.Next?Thanks,

Ben

"Quizzes.Next" and "Quizzes LTI" are two names for the same thing, and this is the new quizzing engine for Canvas currently being worked on by the product team. It is currently not ready for release.

You can learn more at Priority: Quizzes.Next

I understand that anyone can now join the beta testing of this product.

Thanks, Stefanie Sanders. That's a great way to get a head start. I think it's amazing how Instructure keeps their documentation so comprehensive and current. It's the most proactive and well managed knowledge base I've seen so far.

Hi John Watson!

When you're building a quiz, each question allows you to set a point value. You can have this be less than one point. For example, you could for these questions have them each be worth .72/.71 points to equal out to 10 points.

Does this help?
