Extra Credit Question

This guide pertains to Ultra Course View.

If your course is in Original Course View, see the Original Course View tutorial collection.


Awarding Extra Credit

You can enable extra credit in the scoring options and then apply it to individual questions. A correct answer results in adding the points listed in the question's Points box to the points earned for the test. An incorrect answer does not result in a point deduction. Questions designated as extra credit are removed from the total points calculation for the purpose of grading.

If students answer all questions correctly on a test with extra credit questions, they're awarded a score greater than 100% on the test.

The extra credit option doesn't appear for pools and surveys.

  1. Edit the desired test to open the Test Question Settings page, identify the question(s) desired to be extra credit. Click the 3-dots to edit the question.
  2. For each appropriate question, select the Points box.
  3. In the pop-up box, select the check box for Extra Credit.
  4. Select Submit.

To remove extra credit for an individual question, clear the Extra Credit check box. You can disable extra credit for the entire test on the Test Question Settings page.
