Negative scoring

Jul 09, 2015


I know this has been asked before but the thread may have gone cold, but I wanted to know if anyone has had any joy with negative scoring for multiple choice questions.

I have a scenario whereby if there are 4 choices and 3 are correct yet the user selects all 4 options they should only score 2 points instead of the 3 points for just getting the correct answer outright.

Hopefully someone else has come across this recently and had more joy than me. I have tried doing it as a select many type question where a variable of score is added by 1 when the user selects the right answer and the state changes and the wrong answer reduces the score, dependant on the state of the object. I am on the right path?

Hi Ashley,

This is what I've come up with, Essentially I needed a question where the user could still get marks despite technically getting the question wrong. I've also added a result slide to try and trigger recording within an LMS.

The source file is attached if anyone is able to use it, actually turned out that I didn't need it (typical)

Anyway, you can have a look at it here.
