    This assignment's total points were set independently of the question points.

    The relative weight of each question is not changed, but points are scaled to add up to the specified total points for the activity.

  4. Optional: Change the points of specific questions.
    1. Click edit for the question.
    2. Edit the points.
    3. Click Save.

    Unless you previously set the activity points (step 2), the points for the activity are recalculated based on the new point values of the questions.

    You can recalculate the activity points as the sum of the question point values only if you previously set the activity point value (step 2).

    2. Click Re-calculate Total Points.
