Points for Rubric and Mutliple Choice Assessments

 Is there any way to make the total points for an assignment 100?  I usually give multiple choice and rubric questions on one assessment.  With Gradecam Insight, I was able to assign specific point values for discussion questions with the rubric.  For example, many of my discussion questions were worth 5 points total, so me filling  in a 3 for a discussion question would mean that this answer got 3 out of a possible 5 points on a 100 point scale.  I cannot figure out how to do this on Gradecam Go.  When I make a rubric for short answer with 1-5, it seems to me that receiving a 5 means that discussion question receives 5 TIMES the points that a correct multiple choice answer receives.

Hi Ashley,

The point system in GradeCam Go! is exactly the same as in GradeCam Insight.  If you have a rubric that is 1-5 and you fill in a 3 - the student receives 3 of the possible 5 points.  The only time you end up with a larger value than the bubble is when you apply a multiplier to the question.

Hope this helps!

Debbie, 

Thank you for your response; however, I'm still having trouble with this option.  I gave a 22 question quiz.  The last two questions were assigned as RUBRIC, with 1-5 being the range.  So the rubric score for these 2 questions should be 10 points out of 100 total points. The rubric multiplier was 1. The grades are not consistent with what I intended.  For example, I have one student's quiz and the only portion that he missed was one point from one rubric question (he got a 4 out of 5).  His grade came up as a 97, or 29/30.  The way I set it up, shouldn't his grade be a 99?

Hello Ashley,

I am going to send you a response to your email.  I will want to know your specific assignment and class but that information needs to remain private.  Look for a response shortly in your inbox.

Regards,

Debbie

Ok, my total is being divided into the total available points. So missing 1 point on the rubric is seen at 59 out of 60, or a score of 98 instead of 99. How do I set the test so that it deducts points from 100 instead of dividing?
