# Set Points for Assignments (Weighting Questions Equally)

You can change the total point value for your assignment to weight every question equally. For example, if your assignment has 8 questions and you set the assignment to be worth 32 points, each question is worth 4 points, regardless of the number of question parts or the previous weight of the question on the assignment.

Even if you do not intend for every question to have the same weight, this can be a useful starting point if you want your assignment to be worth a particular number of points.

To ensure that every question on the assignment is worth the same number of points, question pools are weighted by the number of questions used from the pool.

If you must change a scheduled assignment, notify your students of the change and rescore the assignment. See Rescore Assignments.
