Setting up scoring for custom quizzes

When you create a custom Qualtrics quiz and write your own original questions, you will need to edit the scoring options. 

If your custom quiz consists of ONLY questions from the PSLO quizzes, then you do no not need to set up scoring.

If you have written original questions, follow the steps below to set up scoring.

  1. Go to survey options on the left side of the page and click on scoring.
  2. You will see all of the questions that appear on your quiz. If you have included any questions from PSLO quizzes, they will already have the scoring assigned. (Most of the PSLO questions are multiple choice with one correct answer. They will have a 1 in the box to the left of the correct answer.) You do not need to make changes to any PSLO question scoring values.
  3. Now you will need to enter a value for the correct answers for your original questions. Look at each question individually and identify how many correct answers there are. The value you assign to the correct answer(s) is 1 divided by the number of correct answers in decimal format. For example, if you write an original question and there is one correct answer, 1/1 = 1. You will enter 1 in the box to the left of the correct answer. If you write an original question and there are two correct answers, 1/2=0.5. You will enter 0.5 in the boxes to the left of each of the two correct answers.
  4. Do not enter anything into the boxes that correspond to incorrect answers.
  5. When you are finished editing the scoring, click on back to editor near the top left corner.
  6. Use the preview feature to test your quiz.
