### ❗ 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.

#### Below you will find basic instructions on how to use the Desmos question types. As mentioned previously in this article, you'll want to have sufficient knowledge of how to use the Desmos Graphing Calculator for best results.

There are four sections for the Desmos Question Types:

# Compose Question

In this section, type the content of the question. For some of the questions, you will need to fill out additional information. For example, for the Point on a Curve question, it has you define the function. The example shown below is for an Absolute Value question.

In this section, you will set an example answer. This section will look different based on the type of question you're creating. The example shown below is for an Absolute Value question.

# Which of the properties of the Example Answer should students match?

In this section, you will determine which parts of your example answer the students will need to match in order to receive points. his section will look different based on the type of question you're creating. The example shown below is for an Absolute Value question.

# Modify Graph and Other Options

Expand the More Options section; here, you can modify the parameters of the graph. This section will look different based on the type of question you're creating. The example shown below is for an Absolute Value question.
