10. Select a grade percentage for the answer. This is the percentage of the total points possible for the question, selecting a given answer is worth. You can select negative percentages as well as positive percentages. So if a question is worth 10 points, selecting one correct response out of two in a multiple-choice question may give you 50 percent of the possible points (i.e., 5 points). Selecting a wrong answer may take away 10 percent (i.e., 2.5 points). 11. If you wish, you can add feedback for each response. Feedback will be displayed only if selected in the options for students to review the quiz. It may be a bit more work, but it’s good practice to tell the students why each answer is right or wrong using the feedback area. If students know why an answer is right or wrong, they can analyze their own thinking and begin to understand the question.

12. Fill in the response choices in the rest of the form. Any unused areas will be ignored. 13. If you wish, you can add overall feedback for any correct/partially correct/incorrect answer. This is especially useful for multiple-answer questions where it is difficult to control what feedback students receive just using the answer-specific feedback. 14. Click the “Save changes” button to add the question to the category.
