Tolerance settings allow you to set the variance in acceptable answers by your students. Setting tolerances allows a wider range of answers to be scored as correct. You can also customize the tolerance setting, applying different settings to different course sections.
To set answer tolerances, select an assignment from the Section Home page. Click the policies tab (A) and then click view & edit policies (B).
Click advanced settings (A) and then select edit next to (B) tolerance (C).
Here you can set the global answer tolerance setting (A). For example, if you set it at 2 percent, if the answer is 100 answers in the range of 98-102 will be accepted. Once you’ve made your edits, choose whether to apply these changes to this assignment only (B) or save as default settings (C).
Note: The Global Answer Tolerance Setting will only increase question level answer tolerances that are equal or less than the Global Answer Tolerance setting. Questions containing question level answer tolerances greater than the Global Answer Tolerance setting will not be affected.
