Can I set different point values for specific answers in an assignment?
Last Updated: May 12, 2015 at 11:41 AM
Yes, you can! Each question created in an assignment has a default point value of 1, but can be customized. For questions that have more than one option, maybe all the answers are correct but answer A is more appropriate than answer B. You can set point (progress) values to individual answers choices so answer A gives 3 points and answer B gives 1.
