# Scoring noob - please help - 10 out of 12 passmark

By
Lee Bailes

Hi All,

*(sorry If this has come up before, I've not found it in searches)*

I'm designing a course where a client wants to add 2 more more questions to a 10 question quiz. The original passmark for the LMS was 80%. Obviously I can no longer hit 80% if they get 10 of the 12 offered questions right. So what should I do?

Technically, if they pass 10 out of 12, they've achieved 83.33% right?

- Should the design be changed simply to set a value of 10 out of 12 questions, rather than a percentage? or
- can I actually set it at 83.33%?

Any ideas or advice would be greatly appreciated. :)

No unfortunately you can't created decimal percentages, but if you picked 83% that would target at least 10 out of 12 questions correct.

11 out of 12 would be 91.66%,

10 out of 12 = 83.33%

9 out of 12 = 75%

You have to pick a percentage rounded down from what you need.
