Hi everyone,

When editing a homework set a check box labeled "Mark correct"is available for the instructor (see below). What is this for? Will checking this give the whole class credit for the problem?

Yup, that's exactly right. You can do the same for individual students as described here:

After students have been assigned a homework set, if you discover that something is wrong with one of the questions (it's way too hard, there's a bug that you aren't able to fix immediately, etc.), you should use Mark Correct. Under these circumstances, if you use Delete It you might mess up the gradebook database. If you use Mark Correct instead, you won't mess up the gradebook database; however, you will "water down" your grades a tiny amount.
