The Exam Results report bases your grade on the total number of questions selected. Your percent correct is calculated by dividing the total problems on the exam (answered or not) with the number of questions correctly answered. The two types of questions, multiple-choice and simulations, are calculated separately.
Simulation questions are graded depending on one of three format types.
Questions that have text box response fields (e.g., the Evidence simulation) are graded automati- cally.
Questions that have selection choices (i.e., check boxes, drop-down lists, and radio buttons) are graded automatically.
