Ordering Questions

Overview

Ordering questions require users to provide an answer by selecting the correct order of a series of items. For example, an Instructor may give users a list of historical events and ask them to place these events in chronological order.

Users will be granted partial credit for ordering questions if they answer part of the question correctly.  For example, if the question is worth eight points and the Student gives the correct order for half of the items, they will receive four points.
