Quizmaker 360 supports scoring for correct responses and incorrect responses. You can even use negative point values for incorrect responses to give learners more nuanced scoring.

Setting the Default Point Value for New Questions

You can change the default value for correct responses. Here's how:

  1. Switch to Question List View.
  2. Go to the Home tab on the ribbon and click Quiz Properties.
  3. Select the Question Defaults tab on the left side of the window.
  4. Enter a number in the Points Awarded field.
  5. Click OK.

Existing questions won't be affected when you change the default point value, so it's a good idea to set your question defaults before adding slides to your quiz. You can override the default point value for any graded question by assigning a different value to it (see below).

Assigning Points in Question List View

In Question List View, you can assign points for correct responses in the question list. Just enter a number in the Points field for any graded question.

To assign points for incorrect responses, you’ll need to switch to Form View (see below).

Assigning Points in Form View

In Form View, you can set the scoring method and assign points. Here’s how:

  1. First, determine how scores will be calculated. Go to the Home tab on the ribbon and use the Score drop-down to select one of the following:
    • None: This makes the question ungraded. It's only available for freeform questions.
    • By Question: This is the default option. It lets you assign a point value for getting the question right and another point value for getting it wrong.
    • By Choice: This option lets you assign a different score to each answer choice. It's only available for Multiple Choice, Word Bank, Freeform Pick One, and Freeform Hotspot questions.
  2. Then, enter values in the point fields for correct and incorrect answers. If you're assigning points by question, the point fields are at the bottom of the window. If you're assigning points by choice, they're to the right of each answer choice. (Quizmaker supports positive and negative whole numbers.)

Changing the Scoring Method in Slide View

In Slide View, you can change the scoring method. Use the Score drop-down in the Question panel on the right side of the screen to choose one of the following:

None

This makes the question ungraded. It's only available for freeform questions.

By Question

This is the default option. It lets you assign a point value for getting the question right and another point value for getting it wrong.

By Choice

This option lets you assign a different score to each answer choice. It's only available for Multiple Choice, Word Bank, Freeform Pick One, and Freeform Hotspot questions.

 

To actually assign points for correct and incorrect responses, you’ll need to switch to Form View (see above).
