Score Adjustments allow you to adjust exam taker scores after an assessment has been taken. Adjustments can include decreasing a student’s final score to penalize the student for a late assignment, or it can include increasing a student's score for extra credit or a curve. This can be done on individual exam takers or can be added to multiple exam takers at once.
