ARE point scoring

    From what I've seen, one question is equal to one point, with no partial credit. This includes all the drag and drop questions and questions similar to that. I imagine part of their reasoning for this is actually because it would be easier to pass if they included partial credit. If you are able to correctly identify the four correct answers out of six or seven, then you're demonstrating clear understanding of the subject matter. If you get three correct and one wrong, that doesn't demonstrate a solid grasp on the question at hand. 

    I'm not sure where I have seen that there is no partial credit, but I have seen it said enough that I'm quite certain it is the case.

    Hey Yohannes,

    Good questions! Hopefully I can help.

    I can confirm that all items on the exam are worth one point and there is no partial credit. At this time, we are not considering providing partial credit for any items on the exam. One thing to remember, all items on the ARE only have one correct answer. For example, if you are answering a check all that apply item that asks you to select four out of the six responses, four answers will be 100% correct and two answers will be 100% incorrect. There will never be a question where all six responses are correct and you have to select the best four. Hopefully that makes sense!
