[LON-CAPA-users] Partial Credit for multiple tries

The only ways I know how to do this are via CustomResponse as it sounds like you're already doing OR using the Lon-Capa gradebook, which we have experimented with a bit but have not sustained.  It's powerful but challenging to get used to I think is a fair statement.  There are no doubt others on the list though who have mastered the gradebook and use it to great advantage who can hopefully contribute guidance if you'd like to explore that direction.

Subject: [LON-CAPA-users] Partial Credit for multiple tries

I have a faculty member that wants to implement the following:

On a multiple choice question
Correct in 1 attempt = 100% credit
Correct in 2 attempts = 75% credit
Correct in 3 attempts = 50% credit
Incorrect = 0% credit

We do something like this in Math, but on Customresponse questions and they use customgraders as well.

Does anyone have an example of making this happen in just a simple M\C problem?

I am decent at reverse engineering, but need a lead.
