Offering Partial Credit

Partial credit rewards students who demonstrate emerging mastery of course material. For example, you can award some of the question's possible points for an answer that lists two of three correct answers.

  • Calculated Formula
  • Fill in Multiple Blanks
  • Jumbled Sentence
  • Matching
  • Multiple Answer
  • Multiple Choice
  • Opinion Scale/Likert
  • Ordering
  • Quiz Bowl
