Different Points for Quiz and Associated Grade Item?

Since the Properties tab of a quiz is where you set up its association with a grade item, but the points on the quiz are determined on the Layout/Questions tab, it is easy to see how there can be a discrepancy between the points possible on the quiz and the maximum points for the associated grade item.

One way to change this to change the maximum points for the grade item. Desire2Learn can then recalculate the points for the grade item based on the quiz score:
  • After you change the maximum points for the grade item, click on the Grade icon for the quiz
  • Clear the graded check box for each attempt so it is marked as ungraded
  • Click the Update button
  • Click in the box to mark each attempt as graded
  • Click the Update button
If you want to go the other direction (i.e., change the points possible on the quiz to match the maximum points for the associated grade item), the steps are a bit different:
  • After you change the points possible for the quiz, click on the Grade icon for the quiz
  • Click on each attempt to open it and then click the Auto-Grade button

  • You can use the arrow buttons directly above the Save button to navigate to the next attempt (you do not have to click the Save button)
