Quiz: Changing The Weight Of A Question

What does this mean?

The weight of a question within a quiz is the ratio of its worth compared to other questions in a quiz. If one question has a weight of 2 and all questions have a weight of 1 then that 2 point question is worth twice as much as its peers.

The numbers in the far-right column on the Edit Quiz page represent individual value (worth) for each question.

This is, by default, one (1) point but it can be set as a different value when cratering quizzes.  As an instructor you can alter the weight of individual questions from their default for a single quiz. For example, you might want an essay question to be worth five (5) points and a true/false question to be worth one (1) point on a final exam.
