I'm allowed to do so.

It helps the staff @ edX, and maintains the integrity of the course.

**EDXProfessor**, Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at 2:22amHere is an idea, not the answer:

S[i] = 5*Xr[i] - 1*Xw[i], where S[i] is Score, Xr[i] - right answer and Xw[i] - wrong answer for the i-th student

The key here is to remember that there are exactly 10 questions each student answers, so Xw[i] = 10 - Xr[i]

Which gives us the following affine transformation:

S[i] = 6*Xw[i] - 10
