In Advanced Assessments, you have the ability to set multiple answers for a question that would award the student partial credit.

Here is an example question:

The correct answer is -7. I want to award points based on the following:

  • 1 point for an answer of -7
  • 0.5 points for an answer of 7

*Note - This particular question is a Cloze Math question, but adding multiple answers is the same process for the other questions types as well.

The Steps

To test out your answers:

  • Click on the preview button. This will allow you to see the points that would be awarded for any answer you type in.

  • With an answer of 7, the points did not turn green, indicating the answer is not correct, but it does show that this answer would earn 0.5 points.
