Grading Extra Credit
Extra Credit can be added to any assignment, however, it's important to note that this must be done by the Course Designer, not the instructor.
When students earn extra credit, the points are added to the Total Earned Points in a course, but it does not add to the total possible points in the course. For example, if a course has 1,000 Total Possible Points and a student earned 950 points and 30 points of extra credit, then they would have a grade of:
950 (earned points) + 30 (extra credit points) = 980/1,000 points or a 98%
Objects with extra credit enabled will display in the Instructor view, design view and student view with a green plus sign (+) in front of the point value.
This object will also be added to the GradeGrid, to be scored by the instructor, like any other assignment.
