The Canvas Release Notes (2022-01-15) includes partial credit options for matching questions in New Quizzes. Please refer to New Quizzes: Partial Credit for Matching Questions .
The Quizzes.Next assignment questions type "Categorization", "Matching", and "Sorting" currently don't allow for partial credit to be given. In order to pacify my students and to give credit were credit is due I'm currently manually adjusting the scores on these questions. Very tedious!
Thus, I would appreciate if the Canvas team would add the option for partial credit to added to these three assignment question types.
if a question has 2 categories and a total of 10 points, a student that would answers one of the two categories correctly would get 5 points.
if a "Sorting" question has 5 sort items and 10 points overall, a student that sorts 3 out of the 5 items correctly would receive 6 points (3/5*10)
if a "Matching" question has 3 items and 10 points overall, a student that would get 2 out of the 3 items matched correctly would receive 6.67 points (2/3 * 10)
