I'm hoping someone can tell me how to set this up correctly.
1. I have a quiz which uses a question bank. The question bank is tied to an outcome. When a student takes the quiz, the grade in the learning mastery gradebook says 0/3 for that outcome. Meaning, they didn't get a high enough percentage on the questions in that part of the quiz to get the mastery level. When I look at the outcome report by clicking on the student name under "People" (why can't I also do this from the gradebook???), the outcome says 3/3 for that same outcome. Why?
2. I set up two almost identical outcomes with the same mastery cutoff (50%). One was with "latest score" as the grading and the other was "highest score" for the grading. The "latest score" outcome is showing as 0/3 and the "highest score" outcome is 3/3. They are both attached to the same question bank and on the same quiz. The student only took the quiz once. What's happening there?
3. If I say that "3" means mastered but the criterion for that outcome has options for 0-4, what would cause Canvas to give a student something other than 3 or 0? Right now it looks like if I set the mastery cutoff for a question bank at a certain percent, above that percent is 3 (mastery) and below that is 0. It would certainly be nice to set up something a little more granular so someone who tests at some range below the cutoff percent would get a 2, for example.
4. How are outcome criterion scores (in my case, 0-4) related to points on quizzes/assignments/questions/question banks/whatever? I'd really like some detailed documentation of how this all works. I used all the info I could find in the community.
I have to say I am really struggling with the outcomes. I use standards-based grades in one of my math courses. I never give percentage grades. I'd really love for there to be a way to skip having points on things entirely.
