**Equally weighted**– The total point value is divided equally among all possible correct matches. Students receive equally weighted points for each correct answer.**All or nothing**– Students receive full points for the question if they select all of the correct answers and none of the incorrect answers. Students receive zero points if they miss any correct answers or select any incorrect answers.**Right minus wrong**– Students receive points equal to the number of right answers they choose minus the number of incorrect answers they choose. To determine how much each answer is worth, the system takes the total number of points assigned to the question and divides it by the total number of answer choices. For example, if a question is worth 10 points and has 5 answer choices, each correct answer is worth 2 points, and each incorrect answer is worth – 2 points (10/5 = 2). If a user gives 3 correct answers and 2 incorrect answers, 2 is the total number of points received for the question [(3*2)+(2*-2)]. Students can receive a minimum of zero on a question; they cannot receive a negative mark.
