On the midterm last quarter, I lost all points on a calculation question following a step in which I forgot to divide by Avogadro's number. I talked to my TA about the partial credit policy, and he said that partial credit can only be given if it is specifically allotted on the rubric. So, please be careful during calculations and don't lose points because of little mistakes like I did!
I agree, I’m pretty sure partial credit is given based on the steps you’ve taken; every step taken towards the answer is allotted a specific number of points until you reach the final answer, which would give you full points if correct, so the earlier you mess up the less points you’ll be given.
