Scoring your live quiz

FlexiQuiz offers a choice of ways to score a live quiz, and you can also choose not to award points.

Each question is auto-scored after all players have submitted their answers. Players can see if they got the question right or wrong and view a running total of points collected.

You can view and share a leaderboard of the total points scored for each player.

Important! You cannot award points or a text/ media slide or free text question.

This guide shows you the scoring options and how to set the points on your live quiz.
