Is there any way to drop points in a quiz similar to the way an assignment group can be set up to drop a certain number of scores?

I have a situation with an instructor who wants to give quizzes worth 10 points however, there are 12 questions. Each question is worth one point. He would like to be able to allow students to miss up to two questions but still get the 10 points (100%) for the quiz. If the student misses a third question, they get nine points, etc. The caveat to this is that if a student answers all 12 questions correctly, they still only get 10 points. The extra two points for the additional two questions are dropped. There is no extra credit.

Is there any way to accomplish this?

Ken,

I can't think of any way to do this automatically. I think what I would do is to have the first 10 questions worth one point each and questions 11 and 12 be worth 0 points (if the numbers divided well I'd say make them all equal and worth something less than a point, but in this case it would be 0.83333333 and that isn't pretty). Then after the quiz manually go through them in Speed Grader and use the Fudge Points box to add additional points as needed. Yes, it's very manual, but I can't think of any other way to do it.
