As the third step in the Course Wizard, the Assignment Settings page allows you to alter the participation credit and weight for entire assignments. You likely won’t need to adjust these settings at all. By default, questions in Prelectures and Bridge/Checkpoints have 100% participation credit and a weight of 1. Problems/Homework have 0% participation credit and a weight of 1.

Participation Credit: Participation credit defines how much credit to give the student just for trying, regardless of the accuracy of the answer. A participation credit of 0% means that the student will only get full credit if their answer is correct. A participation credit of 100% means that a student will receive full credit just for answering the question.

Weight: Resetting the weights ensures that all problems in the assignment count equally toward the assignment’s grade.

Which assignments are affected?

You control which assignment types are affected by selecting Prelecture, Checkpoint, and/or Homework from the Assignment type to modify options. You can also select specific units to be affected by using the Perform changes to these units parameter.
