Set Points for Individual Questions
You can change the point value for any question or question pool on your assignment.
You might want to make some questions on your assignments worth more points than others. Some reasons why you might do this include:
- Assigning point values that reflect the difficulty of the question.
- Assigning point values that reflect the amount of work expected to answer the question.
- Assigning point values of 0 along with conditional points settings to configure bonus or extra credit questions.
If you must change a scheduled assignment, notify your students of the change and rescore the assignment. See Rescore Assignments.
To change the point value for a question:
- If needed, click to collapse the question you want to change.
Type a new value in the Points column for the question.
If you are changing the points for a question pool, type the total point value for the pool. The total points for the pool are divided evenly among all the used questions from the pool.
