What is Advanced Grading
Advanced grading is a section available in all graded assignment types during creation and editing. It includes features to customize grades on that assignment beyond a standard point value and due date. To use this group of settings, create an assignment using the following guides, and return to this article before saving it:
Or you can select Edit on an existing assignment in the assignment feed. Once you are in the assignment, continue below.
Turning On Advanced Grading
On the left side assignment settings panel, select "Pedagogy & Grading" for In-Class Assignments or "Grading" for Homework and Timed Quiz Assignments, and then select "Advanced" under "Grading." This will reveal a number of new settings.
If you would like to set attempt numbers differently for certain questions in this assignment, select "Variable" under the heading "Problem Attempts."
This will change Attempts per Problem to Default Attempts per Problem. This should be the number of attempts you wish to have for the largest number of questions in the assignment, to cut down on work when customizing the other attempt numbers.
If you would like to set different point values for some questions in an assignment, select "Variable" under the heading "Question Points" and then set your Default number of points. This should be the number of points you wish to have for the largest number of questions in the assignment, as with attempts.
If you would like to penalize students for attempts, select the Penalty option under the "Point Penalty Per Problem Attempt" heading. From there, select a percentage that will be deducted for every attempt past the first one.
Randomize Question Order
To randomize question order, scroll to "Question Ordering" and select "Randomized." This will present questions in a different order for each student.
This section is also where you can allow Late Submissions. To learn more about Late Submission options, please see this support article.
Set Variable Points and Attempts
If using variable points or attempts, move to the main panel to your previously added questions are located (or add questions and come back to this step.) Find any questions that need fewer or more attempts or points than the default, and adjust the number, then do the same for Points per Problem.
You are all set now! Hit Start or Save for Later as when setting up any other assignment, and your assignment is ready to go.
