Learn@UW - Grading of MultiSelect Questions

MultiSelect questions in Learn@UW can be graded in one of three ways. In each case, the grading logic is that an option that is correctly checked will be graded as correct, while an option that is correctly not checked which will also be graded as correct.

All or nothing

Use this option if you want to be sure that students select only the correct options. For example:

  1. Correct

  2. Correct

  3. Incorrect

  4. Incorrect

A student who selects "B" and "C" will receive 0 points, because they did not exactly check the correct answers: "A" and "B."

Right minus wrong

Use this option if you want to assign a penalty for selecting the wrong answer. For example:

  1. Correct

  2. Correct

  3. Incorrect

  4. Incorrect

A student who selects "B" and "C" will receive 0 points, because they get half-credit for answering "B," but loose half-credit for answering "C" incorrectly.

Right answers

Use this option if you do not want to penalize students for selecting an incorrect option. For example:

  1. Correct

  2. Correct

  3. Incorrect

  4. Incorrect

A student who selects "B" and "C" will receive half credit, because they get one quarter-credit for answering "B" and another quarter-credit for correctly not checking "D."

Note: under this option, since correctly unchecked answers are marked as correct, the grading of some questions may appear abnormal.
