Help / How to manually score your quizzes

Manually scoring a quiz, test, or assessment

FlexiQuiz will automatically mark, score, and grade most question types. However, free format and file upload questions need manual marking due to the nature of the responses. You also have the flexibility to manually score any submitted questions and quizzes so that you can change the test taker's score.

If the number of points awarded is changed, the FlexiQuiz system automatically recalculates the participant's total score and identifies if they pass or fail. You can share the updated scores with participants manually or using email notifications.
