Points Based Grading

Hello All-

Question about point based grading. If you are grading according to points, how do you grade reading passages? For example, if a passage has 7 questions and you want each of your passages to count 20 points each, how would you do that?

I know it seems like a simple question but I really couldn't figure out how to make that work.


I appreciate your insight!

Brittany

Don't make it more complicated than it needs to be...I would either change the passage to count for 14 points or 21 points. That way each question is either worth 2 or 3....

If it is something major and short, as in questions I let them count 2 points each. That is why I like points grading a short tests counts less than a larger one. I think this is the fairest way to grade.

Add three questions, and then every question will be worth 2 points.

Take away two questions, and each question will be worth 4 points.

Keep the seven questions, but make sure three of the questions have two parts. (example: How did the main character solve the problem? How would you have solved the problem?) That way, you will have ten questions and each answer will be worth 2 points.
