      Description

      So building on https://jira.sakaiproject.org/browse/SAK-42479, saving a M/C question with a single correct answer defaults to "Enable negative marking" upon save.

      Can we remove this setting? When instructors come across this setting in the edit screen, they are concerned for two reasons:

      (1) they realize they did not choose that setting and wonder why Sakai did;

      (2) they think they are supposed to use it since it's selected for them.

       

      When it comes to grading, Instructors are very, very nervous and not at all accommodating. 

      This setting should not turn itself on and stick when users attempt to remove it, even if it is innocuous with the zero point deduction filled in. 

      Note that In our testing, the setting does not seem to negatively affect the student's grade if a zero is in the points field. But there doesn't seem to be  workaround for this because nothing you do will permanently de-select this setting.
