Default value for quiz points

Follow

Please allow us to set the default value for test/quiz points so that we don't have to change 10 pts to 1 pt for every question, every test, every time. It would be best to have a setting that individuals can choose, but at the very least, change 10 to 1. I don't know anyone who makes all their questions worth 10 pts. 1 is the most common.

    Great News Schoologites! 
     
    We heard your feedback loud and clear. We are happy to report that Schoology test/quiz questions now default to 1 point instead of 10. 
     
    As always, thank you for your feedback and keep it coming, we LOVE to hear your ideas!

    Yes, this is a huge issue. Edmodo made it much easier!

    Ditto. Educators will specify when a question is worth more than one point. At minimum, change the default for T/F and M/C questions.

    Holy smokes. This is a persistent frustration. I've written hundreds of quiz questions, most of which are ONE point, not ten.

    Yes! Yes! Yes!  This is really annoying, and I see that you still haven't done anything about in the 15 months since the request was first made!  Why not???

    We just had this request from our nursing department.  I'm surprised it has not been resolved!  Does Schoology moderate these community blogs or have expert users provide answers?

    Agreed. Please change this feature to be defaulted at 1 point per question. Nothing is more annoying than seeing quiz grades where I find one question left at the default 10 points and students failing because it is now 50% of their grades. I do not know a single teacher that has normal quiz questions worth more than one point, certainly not 10.

    I have recommended to everyone at our school to leave the Schoology platform for school year 2017-2018 due to this default point value issue. 

    It is truly a joke as is the programming department for this terrible platform.  Blackboard and Canvas have had this feature since I started using them in 2001. 

    Moodle is also an option.

    It seems like this would be a simple change to make. Please change the default value to 1!

    I think it would make the most sense to set the default to each question 1 point and then we can change it from there to more points if necessary.
