Home | Help Guides: How to add points to a quiz


Scored tests are a great way to check a respondents' level of understanding in a variety of scenarios including, recruitment, onboarding, training or as a fun way to engage people. FlexiQuiz offers various scoring options, from a simple point per correct answer to more complex options such as, deducting points for incorrect responses. 


You just need to set the rules for scoring each question in your quiz. FlexiQuiz will then instantly mark the answers and calculate the total score for all submitted tests based on your rules. Quiz results are automatically saved on your analysis dashboard for future reference and you can choose how to share results with quiz takers.


Top Tip: file upload and free format questions cannot be automatically marked by FlexiQuiz.  Due to the nature of responses, you will need to manually view and mark these question types.


Options for setting rules that award points:

FlexiQuiz offers a choice of ways for each question points to be awarded in quiz questions. You have the flexibility to set different rules for each question or remain consistent throughout the whole exam. 

Your options are:

 Points per question - quiz takers are given a set number of points for getting the whole question correct. 

Points per answer option - quiz takers are given points for each part of the question answered correctly.  

 Manual scoring - you can manually review participants answers and update the points awarded for the question. Learn how to manually score a quiz

Points can be awarded in a full amount (e.g. 5 points), as a negative (e.g. -2) or as a fraction (e.g. 2.5)
