    Settings block, Course administration, Grades

  2. For the item you want to set as extra credit, click 'Edit' in the Actions column and select 'Edit settings'.

    Help: "What if I don't see an 'Extra credit' option?"
    This means the item is in a grade category with an aggregation method of "Weighted mean of grades" which doesn't support extra credit. You can change the aggregation method for grade categories. Learn how in Moodle Grades: Category Settings
  4. The grade item will be marked as extra credit (indicated by a plus sign '+' next to its max grade value). The category containing the extra credit item will now exclude those points from its maximum possible score.
