Change points for question/s in a Blackboard test

You can change the possible points awarded for answering questions correctly in two ways. For both ways, new grades are recalculated for all previously submitted tests.

  1. On the Test Canvas, select a question's current points.
  2. In the Update Points box, edit the points, set the question as extra credit, or give full credit. To remove a question's extra credit or full credit designation, clear the appropriate check box. You can't set extra credit or partial credit for questions unless you chose the options on the Question Settings page.
