      Description

      I would like to see a feature where questions within a quiz can be specified as extra credit, so if the student answers those questions correctly they earn extra credit, but if they get those questions incorrect they are not penalized. This is the most requested use of extra credit, but I've yet to see it implemented in Moodle.

        Oh dear! From this side of the pond, 'Extra credit' just seems like this weird things that Americans do, that just makes everything far more complicated than necessary. So far, no one had ever requested it within the quiz before. ...

        Sorry. What I meant to say was : Thank you for you helpful suggestion for a new Moodle feature. I have added it to the wishlist, so that it can be given due consideration, and possibly implemented in future. It probably falls into this general area: http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Goals_of_an_online_assessment_system#A_richer_model_for_which_questions_are_in_a_quiz

        I can understand that, but given the choice, my folks would much prefer the extra credit within an item rather than as a separate item. I know we moved from Blackboard and this was a feature there, so that is probably where the idea came from.
