Tip Sheet # 10 - November 29, 2022

(Scroll down for premade Holiday Activities.)

November 29th is Giving Tuesday!

"Partial Match Scoring" 

is Our Gift to You!


It's Giving Tuesday so our gift to you is a scoring headache resolved in an elegant way. 

For short response/fill-in-the-blanks, you can now turn on partial match scoring and enter a keyword. If any student's answer contains the keyword, it will get marked as correct. No longer do you have to figure out all possible variations of the answer in advance or constantly go back and update your answer key. Set the keyword and let TeacherMade do a better job of grading the assignment for you.

Here's a quick video explaining how partial match grading works.
