scoring of multi-answer q's

Follow

The scoring of questions with multiple answers is always way off. Even though I always select "partial credit," the scoring is always wrong. For example:

  • If there's two correct answers and the student selects two but only gets one right, the program will score it as a zero.
  • If there's three correct answers and the student selects three but only gets one right, the program will score it as a zero.
  • If there's three correct answers and the student selects three but only gets two right, the program will score it as a 1 out of 3.

Every single time I assign a question like this on a test, I have to go back and manually re-score every student's answer.

    Hi Stefanie,

    Thank you for reaching out in the Schoology Community!

    Ordering questions function very similarly to Matching questions. When partial credit is enabled, you have the option to set a minimum continuous sequence.

    The example in our Help Center explains the way that it is structured. “If your minimum continuous sequence is two, for example, and the student correctly guesses that the first answer is A and the last answer is Z, but all of the answers in between A-Z are wrong, the answer will be marked incorrect and the student will receive a zero because the student was unable to get two consecutive correct answers. (Even though he or she correctly identified A as the first item and Z as the last). However, if you would like to consider this as a correct answer, you can override the score.”

    You can read more about this here and here.

    Best,
