About points...
We associate a certain number of points with each exercise.
When you click an exercise into a collection, this number will be taken as points for the exercise, kind of "by default".
But once the exercise is on the collection, you can edit the number of points for the exercise in the collection independently, without any effect on "points by default" as represented by the number here.
That being said... How many "default points" should you associate with an exercise upon creation?
As with difficulty, there is no straight forward and generally accepted way.
But as a guideline, we tend to give as many points by default as there are mathematical steps to do in the exercise.
Again, very vague... But the number should kind of represent the "work" required.

Why we use chess pieces? Well... we like chess, we like playing around with \(\LaTeX\)-fonts, we wanted symbols that need less space than six stars in a table-column... But in your layouts, you are of course free to indicate the difficulty of the exercise the way you want.
That being said... How "difficult" is an exercise? It depends on many factors, like what was being taught etc.
In physics exercises, we try to follow this pattern:
Level 1 - One formula (one you would find in a reference book) is enough to solve the exercise. Example exercise
Level 2 - Two formulas are needed, it's possible to compute an "in-between" solution, i.e. no algebraic equation needed. Example exercise
Level 3 - "Chain-computations" like on level 2, but 3+ calculations. Still, no equations, i.e. you are not forced to solve it in an algebraic manner. Example exercise
Level 4 - Exercise needs to be solved by algebraic equations, not possible to calculate numerical "in-between" results. Example exercise
Level 5 -
Level 6 -

Exercise:
What is a em gravitational potential difference? Derive a formal expression for a uniform gravitational field.
Solution:
The em electric potential difference is defined as the work W_E done by the em electric field on a charged particle divided by the particle's charge q: Delta phi_E fracW_Eq For a gravitational field the mass of a test particle is responsible for the eraction in the gravitational field. We can therefore define the gravitational potential difference as the work W_G done by the gravitational field on a particle divided by the particle's mass m: Delta phi_G fracW_Gm In the case of a homogeneous gravitational field we know that the work is given by W_G m g h It follows for the gravitational potential difference: Delta phi_G fracm g hm g h This is similar to the result for a homogeneous electric field Delta phi_E E d.
