Default FSA Exam Grading

I should probably know this by now, but do graders give partial points on FSA exams? I don't mean partial credit, I mean partial points, for example:

(1 point): What are the first 3 letters of the alphabet?

Answer by me: a, c, walnuts

Would I get: 0 points, 2/3 or a point, something else?

Probably depends on the question, but yes, it's possible to get partial points.

I'd give you some partial points if I were grading.
