Scoring Settings Configure scoring settings for assignments and individual questions, add assignments to weighted categories, and apply bonus or penalty points. Assignment Scoring BehaviorsSome settings on your assignment control how your students need to calculate and specify their responses for questions requiring numerical computation. Usually, you do not need to change these settings from the WebAssign default values. Set the Category for AssignmentsYou can set the category for an assignment to one of the default categories — Homework, Quiz, Test, Lab, Exam, and In Class — or you can create and use your own categories. Weight Questions or Change the Point Value of AssignmentsWhen you add questions to your assignment, by default each question part is assigned 1 point. For this reason, a question with three parts will be worth 3 points, and a question with one part will be worth 1 point. You can change the point values of individual questions, question parts, or question pools. Or, you can specify a total point value for the assignment and weight every question equally. Apply Bonus or Penalty Points AutomaticallyYou can give bonus points or apply penalties automatically to discourage random guessing, encourage students to complete their work early, give partial credit for attempting questions, or give extra credit for some questions.
