How to Give Extra Credit on a Quiz

Purpose: Extra points, or credit, can be allotted to a student’s quiz grade when needed in two places, the Grades link and as “Fudge Points” through the Canvas SpeedGrader. Students will be able to see point allotments in either places. Please communicate grade calculations to students when this is performed to avoid final grade confusion.

**The “Fudge Point” method also applies to Quizzes.Next**

**There is currently no method of entering extra credit points automatically to an entire class, instructors must performs this manually and per student.**

**Steps are performed using the New Gradebook, if your gradebook looks different, please adjust steps as needed**
