Assigning Points to 40 Question Quiz

Nov 17, 2020

I have a quiz with 40 questions, and each question is worth the same value, which should be 2.5, however, I am only able to assign whole point values to the quiz.  How do I make a perfect score come out to 100%?

Hi Barbara,

Thanks for reaching out and sharing what you are currently working on.

The score percentage is calculated by the score points divided by the total points. The default is 10 points/question no matter your number of questions. So, the total points do not have to equal 100.

For your example:

  • 40 questions
  • 10 points/question
  • 400 total points available
  • So, assuming the default pass percentage of 80% remains (for this example at least), then the learner would need 320 points, which is 32/40 questions correct.
  • 400/400 would be a score of 100%

Hope that helps! 😊
