❗ A Note Regarding Scoring:
The default score of a Desmos question is always 1 point. To change the point value, you'll have to adjust it in the assessment builder section above, rather than in the question itself.
Authoring a Basic Question
Example: SlopeIntercept
Step 1: Click on the SlopeIntercept Question, found under “Algebra I”
Step 2: Compose a question  exampled is the question “Graph y=2x+3”
Step 3: Set one correct example answer
Step 4: Make sure both properties of the Example Answer are selected (in this case, both slope and intercept)
Step 5: To preview what a student would see, click the “preview” button at the top right. Here you’ll note that the graph will mark any correct answer as correct, even if it doesn’t match the exact example answer you’ve set. For example, this following solution is marked as correct:
Optional  change the starting state that a student sees:
Click on “More options” dropdown, change the graph that appears below to what you’d like for your student to see
For more information on how the Desmos options work, check out this resource. 
Build Off of an Existing Template
Example: Perpendicular Lines
(Build a question and want it to have the same structure as the existing slope question you may have asked)
Step 1: Click on the SlopeIntercept Question, found under “Algebra I”
Step 2: Compose a question  here I’ll ask instead “Graph a line perpendicular to this one” (note: in this case, we’ll pretend that “this one” is still the line y=2x+3)
Step 3: Unselect “intercept”, as it’s no longer needed as a correctness condition
Step 4: Click on the “More options” options dropdown
Step 5: Here, there should already be a list of expressions, which are part of the template. I’ll leave those and instead, I’ll add in a new expression, the line “y=2x+3”. Here, I prefer to make this a different color and dashed to make it differentiated (note: click and hold down on the icon to change these settings).
Step 6: Set a correct answer example as you would normally
Step 7: In the student preview tab, I can see that the whole world of correct answers has already been set for the students, allowing a large number of graphs to be marked correct.
