Instructor Q&A

schoology assessments


Students are having a problem when they put the correct answer it is marking them wrong.  I checked the students work and the correct answer is wrong as well.  When I check the questions themselves, the correct answers are correct.  Seems like the correct answers are getting mixed up some how.  Any help would be great.

    Hi Timothy!

    Thank you for reaching out in the Schoology Community! 

    Did you enable Partial Credit for a specific question type?  

    Depending on the question type, there are a few ways to allocate partial credit for Assessments. This article provides an overview of these options and some examples. If so, here's a Help Guide that explains how Partial Credit works in Assessments. 

    Please let me know if you need further assistance after reviewing the information above.

    Last week I had a teacher have this problem as well.  Students chose the correct answer in an assessment but were not given the points for the correct answer.  For instance, Schoology shows them as having the correct answer but gave them 0/5 points.   It was not consistently done across a question or a student.  It was random on each question, which students this affected.   There was no partial credit selected for any of the questions.  This made some students grades for the assessment much lower than it should have been.

    I have submitted a ticket and will await guidance but I am curious if this has been seen more widely?
