A scored quiz type allows you to assign a point value to each question answer in your quiz (values can be positive or negative numbers). At the end of the quiz, the score is tallied by adding up all point values assigned to the question answers that were selected by the quiz taker. As the quiz creator, you can select the score ranges assigned to each quiz result to determine which total score ranges will map to a specific result.

Editing Answer Scores

You can edit individual question answer scores by following these steps:

Step 1: In the quiz builder, click the quiz question you would like to edit.

Step 2: Click on Set Answer Scores located in the top right or bottom right of the question. 

Step 3: Enter the score value you would like to assign for each specific result into the provided input boxes.

Step 4: Click Save.

Note: When you update the score values and save, your result score ranges will be automatically adjusted to ensure that all of your scores are included. If you need to adjust your result score ranges, wait until you have set up all answer scores and then adjust the result score ranges.

Step 5: Repeat this process for all of your question answers until all score values are complete.

Editing Result Score Ranges

In order to edit result score ranges, it is helpful to understand that score range consists of 2 values: a minimum and a maximum. For example, a score range of 1 to 5 (minimum equals 1 and maximum equals 5) means that any user who receives a total score at the end of the quiz within the range 1 to 5 would see the result mapped to this score range (scores 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 fall into this range).

You can edit the result score ranges by following these steps:

Step 1: In the quiz builder, click the quiz result you would like to edit and click "result settings" in the bottom right corner.

Step 2: Enter values for the minimum and maximum range values.

Step 3: Click Save.

Important: Result score ranges must be in the order of lowest score to highest score. This means that your first result must contain the lowest possible score and your last result must contain the highest possible score.

If you see any errors, follow the prompts on the screen to adjust the minimum and maximum values until they fall within a valid range. Some common mistakes are:

  • The min value must always be less than the max value for a given result score range.

  • Result ranges cannot "overlap" with other result ranges. For example, if Result 1 has a score range of 1 to 3, your score range for Result 2 cannot be 0 to 2. These score ranges overlap and therefore is invalid.

Note: Editing the score range will automatically adjust the other score ranges to accommodate all possible scores. For example, if your quiz has 2 possible results with score ranges 0-5 and 6-10 and you change Result 1 score range to 0-2, the Result 2 score range will automatically adjust to 3-10.
