How do I edit assessment question point values?
If questions were added to an assessment individually, you can edit the point value of a question either from the assessment editing screen or from the individual question's editing screen.
If questions were randomly drawn, you will need to edit the Part of the assessment in which they appear to change the point value for each question in that part.
Select Edit from the Action drop-down menu for the assessment.
Note: Assessment editing must take place in the Working Copies tab or in the Published Copies tab before anyone accesses the assessment to take it.
In the Answer Point Value box, enter the new point value for the question.
For a true false or multiple choice, single correct question, edit the negative marking value. (Optional)
For true false or multiple choice, single correct questions, you can deduct point(s) from students' assessment scores when they select incorrect answers. If negative marking was enabled, you can edit the point value to deduct.
- Enter a new point value in the Points deducted for incorrect answer text box.
- Or to remove Negative Marking, select the Reset to Default Grading Logic link.
If your assessment questions are randomly drawn from a question pool, edit the Part of the assessment in which they appear to change their point values.

If desired, in the text box provided For 'True False' or 'Multiple Choice, Single Correct' questions, deduct ___ point(s) for incorrect answers, enter a new point(s) value to deduct.
