  • Score per cell: the score will be divided equally among the number of cells. 
  • Full/no score: the student will receive the full score for the row if the entire row has been filled out correctly. If they have made one or more mistakes, the students will receive 0 points for the row.
  • Partial score: the student will receive the full score for a row if it has been filled out completely correct. If they have made one mistake the student will receive 50% of the points. For two or more mistakes they will receive zero points.
