Scoring test questions

Automatic scoring

Once you've established that an item can be scored automatically (this will depend on the interaction types used in it), the main decision you need to make when scoring the response is whether to award partial credit if only part of the answer is correct. This issue only arises when a test question has multiple parts, of course.

Note: The default method used to score test questions is that no partial credit is awarded. In other words, if you don't change the way the scoring method is configured for the item you've created, the whole item has to be correct (if it only has one interaction in it) for the test-taker to receive any marks at all for that particular response.
