Grading of an order-question
When you have not made use of the product rule-option, an order-question will be graded as follows:
We determine the number of correct ‘pairs’. So for 4 options te following pairs are used:
1-2 ; 1-3 ; 1-4 ; 2-3 ; 2-4 ; 3-4
We compare this with the student answer and if for example, the student identified 4 correct pairs, the student receives a score of 4/6 * number of points.
So in general: grade = (number of correct pairs set by the student / total number of correct pairs) * number of points set for this question
Note: This question will be graded automatically and therefore it is not possible to change the score of a specific student. You can only change the points from the question.
