The Points Possible for each skill is the total number of points a student can earn on that skill.
For a multiple choice assessment, many of our schools use the rule of thumb that one question is worth one point. This will vary with more complex open response questions.
In the example below, skill 1.2 is worth 10 points because the assessment had 10 multiple choice questions, each worth 1 point, that evaluated skill 1.2:
The number of points given to a student is divided by the total points possible to calculate a student's grade. For example, if you had 10 questions on a particular skill and each was worth 2 points, it would be worth 20 points.
