How to set scores on a question using advanced scoring and with several question elements.

If you institution has activated advanced scoring there will be more alternatives available in the scoring panel to the right of the editor.
If you have several question elements in the same question,  you have to be aware that some of the scoring rules in the right panel applies to every question element, and some applies to the question as a whole. 

Applies to each question element

  • Points per correct answer  
  • Points per wrong answer
  • Points for all correct
  • Minimum score

Applies to the question as a whole

  • Points for unanswered (This means that "Points for unanswered" are only used when all the question items are unanswered)
    • Example: Question 1 comprise of Question element A and Question element B. Question element A is answered, Question element B is unanswered. The question as a whole is answered, so the candidate will achieve Points for wrong answer for Question element B 

This image show an example of a Multiple Respond questions with two elements.

Example 1 - Two question items with two correct answers each

Example 2 - Two question items, the first with one correct alternative checked, the second with one wrong alternative checked.
Note that the first item gives a score of 2 (Points per correct) and the second item gives a score of 0 (since minimum score is set to 0)
