Set Correct Answers and Scoring

➡️ Set Correct Answers

  • Alternate answers (Optional): click the Add ( + ) button to add alternate answers (see More options section below).

  • Show drag handle (Optional): Shows or hides handle button

➡️ Scoring

  • Point value: Enter the full point value for getting this answer correct.

  • Scoring Type:

    • Exact match (Default): All parts of the answer must be correct to be awarded credit.

    • Partial Credit: There are several ways to achieve partial credit. See below.

Partial Match Per Cell

If all answers in a cell are correct, the credit designated in the Set correct answer(s) field will be awarded. In this example with two cells (Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere), 1 point would be awarded if all answers in the cell are correct, adding up to as many as 2 total points:

Partial Match Per Cell - Max Score:

Same as Partial match per cell, only the entire point value (in this case 1 point) is divided across all answers. In this example with two cells (Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere), 0.5 points are awarded if all answers in the cell are correct, adding up to 1 total point. Note - in this example, Rounding was set to None. The default is Round down, which does not offer fractional credit):

Partial Match Per Element

Each correct answer will be awarded the full credit designated in the Set correct answer(s) field. (In this example with four response options, awarding 1 point per correct answer, adding up to as many as 4 total points):

Partial match per element - max score:

Same as Partial match per element, only the entire point value (in this case 1 point) is divided across all answers. In this example with four responses, 0.25 points is awarded for each correct answer, adding up to as much as 1 total point. Note - in this example, Rounding was set to None. The default is Round down, which does not offer fractional credit):


Student Preview

It's highly recommended to Preview the question before adding it to the assessment. This displays the question as the students will see it and also verifies that the answers and scoring work as expected.

  • Step 1: Select the Preview button to go into Preview mode.

  • Step 2: Answer the question with the correct answers, including alternates.

    • Selecting Show Answers will present the correct answers.

  • Step 3: Verify that the auto-score correctly calculates the point value.

Here is a short clip of this question type from the student's perspective.
