Buzz: Questions & Answers
What is the way black zeros and red zeros are intended to be used? I had thought black zeros indicated that a student did not complete the assignment, but still has the opportunity to (similar function to a red zero with a retry).
I have noticed, however, that black zeros do not count against the student grade. Is the black zero supposed to simply act as an indicator that students have not completed the assignment, rather than leaving the space blank? Is there a way to easily change all black zeros to red zeros (perhaps at the end of a grading period, or just to let the student know how much the assignment will impact the overall score?
Do I have the right idea about black and red zeros, or am I misunderstanding the best use and purpose?
