Is there a way to assign multiple questions and allow students to answer only a portion of them, without the gradebook deducting points from their overall grade?
Nicole, the way we've done this (and only for essay, terms, or short answer type questions) is to add the question information and question choices as a "Text (no question)" questions. We then add blank essay questions underneath this text.
For example if there are 4 essay questions and the students only need to do three (each worth 10 points each) then the text (no question) would have information about the essay and all four essay choices. There would then be three Essay questions (each worth 10 points) underneath the text that students could add their responses.
Hope this helps!
