I agree. I called the CTB people. The answer I received is "Although, we
(CTB) may be wrong. We (the teachers) need to be consistent with the scoring so
the point must be deducted". I also pointed out the fact that the definition
of a line graph provided by the state in their glossary says line segments. I
called NYSED and the answer was basically the same with the addition of the
statement that since the information given indicates a linear function a ray
is appropriate. I agreed with appropriate and completely disagree with
required. I was told the same that we need to be consistent in the grading. I voiced
my disagreement and was advised to write a letter. I believe this is
important, we should all write letters.
