# 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.

• 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! 😊

Hi Barbara,

I am having same issue and would like to verify logic with you. I have 100 question bank, 20 question are randomly pulled, passing score is 80%. Should I assign 5 points to each? Or are you saying to always leave the default of 10 points per question?

Hi Kelly,

I think either approach is feasible. It all comes down to the math.

• 20 questions
• 80% pass rate
• 10 points/each
• 200 possible points
• 160/200 required to pass or 16/20 questions
• 5 points/each
• 100 possible points
• 80/100 required to pass or 16/20 questions
