Though we don't (yet) have a specific 'curving' feature, below is a breakdown of the three possible ways to 'remove a question' from the test and increase the class average. Each method will affect individual students' marks differently.

Option 1: Remove Question from the test

To remove a question from the test, double click on the desired question in the 'Responses' tab. Set the 'Marks' to "0" and click 'Okay'. Akindi will automatically regrade the test sheets and update the average. Click 'Save Changes',

Edit Answer Key and set question to be worth zero marks

How will this affect student's grades?

Removing a question from the test will reduce the total number of marks of the assessment (eg. from 25 to 24) and remove any points earned by answering this question correctly.

The students that originally answered this question correctly, will receive a decrease in their grade.

How will this affect student's grades?

A Bonus question will reduce the total number of marks of the assessment (eg. from 25 to 24) while still awarding any points earned by answering this question correctly. With Bonus questions, it would be possible for a student to earn over 100% (eg. 25/24).

The students that originally answered this question correctly, will receive an increase in their grade.

The students that originally answered this question incorrectly, will receive an increase in their grade.

Higher performing students will receive a larger grade increase compared to lower performing students.
