Advanced grading is a section available in all graded assignment types during creation and editing. To use this feature, set up an assignment using the following guides, and return to this article before saving it:
Once you have your assignment ready to save:
1. On the left side panel of the assignment settings screen, select "Pedagogy & Grading" for In-Class Assignments or "Grading" for Homework and Timed Quiz Assignments, and then select "Advanced" under "Grading".
2. If you would like to set attempt numbers differently for certain questions in this assignment, select "Variable" under the heading "Problem Attempts."
3. Set your Default number of attempts. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. To randomize question order, scroll to "Question Ordering" and select "Randomized." This will present questions in a different order for each student.
7. This section is also where you can allow Late Submissions. To learn more about Late Submission options, please see this support article.
8. If using variable points or attempts, move to the main panel to your previously added questions are located. 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.
