Passing Percent Preference

Use this preference to set the minimum percentage correct score required to pass a Reading Practice Quiz, Other Reading Quiz, or Article Quiz. The passing percentage is set separately for quizzes with 10 or fewer questions and those with more than 10 questions.

When you change the passing percentage scores, your change will not affect quizzes that have already been taken. Those quizzes remain passed or failed based on the passing percentage setting that was in effect at the time they were taken.

This preference affects Reading Practice Quizzes, Other Reading Quizzes, and Article Quizzes, but not Literacy Skills Quizzes or Vocabulary Practice Quizzes; see Passing Percentage.
