Question

How do you know what points to take off when the number of questions in your tests and class work varies? Do you have a chart that shows what to take off for a different amount of questions?

says:

The simple answer is no. What you should do for each test is decide the cut point for
Excellent, Proficient, Approaching Proficiency and Minimal and record scores as E P A M or 4 3
2 1. The cut points will not be the same on each test because of variation in the difficulty of
the concepts/skills and variation in the difficulty of the assessment.
