Help / Assigning Grades

Assigning grades to a quiz

Once you've created an online quiz, test or assessment it's possible to assign a grade based on the participants' score.

The score is based on the number of points earned for correct answers on a quiz. While a grade indicates the participant's level of accomplishment, which you can express as a letter, number, text or a mix.

With FlexiQuiz, you can create custom grades that system automatically assigns to a participant. A grade can also be used to determine if the participant passes or fails the examination and any quiz redirects.

This guide shows you how to create and manage custom grades.

How to add grades to new or existing quizzes

  1. Create a quiz
  2. Select the Configure tab
  3. Choose Grading from the left-hand menu
  4. The system will now display the grades configuration page.

  5. Add your data to the relevant columns. These are the definitions for each column:
    • Grade: The name of the grade that you would like to award the test-taker such as pass, exceptional or A++. You can include letters, numbers, or a short description. Top tip! The grade can be written in any language.
    • Minimum %: This is the minimum percentage of points that the participant needs to earn to qualify for the grade.
    • Pass: Check this box if the grade qualifies as a pass. A pass or fail can determine if the learner qualifies for a certificate, can re-take the test, and you can create custom messages based on a pass or fail.

    • If you tick the box Redirect based on grade the following options appear:

    • Redirect type: You can choose to redirect participants to another quiz or URL based on their grade
    • Location: Select where your participants are directed to at the end of the quiz
  6. To add more grades to the examination, press Add grade.
