Disclude a Quiz Question  

There are two options for discluding a question from a quiz: 1) give everyone credit for that question or 2) change the question point value to zero. The latter option slightly increases the point value of all the other quiz questions.

5. To give everyone credit for a discluded multiple choice question:

  • Follow Steps 1-3 above to access the question.
  • Change every answer choice to 100%. Note: while this is possible for multiple choice questions, it might not be possible for every question type.

set point value at 100 for each answer choice to toss a question

Or to completely throw out the question:

  • Edit the question and change the Default points to zero, save. Now any answer, whether correct or incorrect ,will have no effect on the quiz score.
