Instructor Q&A

Making Bonus Quizzes or Assessments


In my course we give ten quizzes and then add a bonus quiz. In Blackboard we did this by changing the total points for the quiz to zero.

When we switched to Schoology, I tried this and it did not work. The points made on the quiz are multiplied by the number of questions in the quiz so that no matter what grade the student made on the quiz, they received a zero in the grade book.

I was told that you could make bonus assessments, therefore I remade the quiz from scratch as an assessment only to find that the assessment has the same error.

Is there any way to make a bonus quiz in Schoology?

    Hi Rosalyn,

    Thank you for your question! I am very sorry if this issue has caused any inconvenience.

    Currently, you cannot use Tests/Quizzes or Assessments to provide extra credit in Schoology, as Test/Quizzes & Assessments worth zero possible points are not included in grade calculations. 

    As a workaround, you can add a Grade Column to your course and add points earned on the Test/Assessment that way.

    Our Help Article on Extra-Credit details which material types will allow for extra-credit and how to set it up properly in Schoology.

    I hope this helps!
