Question

I am a college instructor. On my last exam, 15 out of 20 students got the same 2 questions wrong. If I decide that the questions were bad/confusing and credit everyone who got the questiona wrong(2.5 points each), do I need to credit the students who got the questions correct with the same amount of points? Thank you.

Difficult question; I see three alternatives - eliminate the questions for all students, or credit
the students who got them right and give those who got them wrong alternate (better)
questions or score the students who got the questions right out of the original total and score
the students who got them wrong out of the original total minus 5.
