There are multiple ways to add scoring to your quiz. Simply add 1 point per correct answer, or add multiple points depending on the answer. Take a look at the 10 best sources for quiz questions and answers. 


In this guide we'll discuss the following:

  1. Single Answer - 1 point
  2. Single Answer - Custom score
  3. Multiple Answer - 1 point
  4. Multiple Answer - All correct score


1 Single Answer - 1 point

When you turn a question into a quiz question, a slider will appear next to each answer. Toggle to show which is the correct answer. The score for that answer will change to 1. In this case, respondents get 1 point when they indicate the right answer, and 0 points when they indicate a wrong answer.

2 Single Answer - Custom Score

When you turn a question into a quiz question, a slider will appear next to each answer. Toggle to show which is the correct answer. The score for that correct answer will change to 1. 


For every other possible answer, you can manually change the points by adapting the number in the boxes next to the answers. In this example, the respondent will get 5 points for the correct composer of Fur Elise (Beethoven), 2 points for the wrong answer Mozart (Beethoven and Mozart were from the same period while Bach had already died when they were born), and 0 points for the wrong answer Bach.

Tip: Want to add a negative score to an answer that is really, really wrong? You can do so by typing the negative number in the box.


3 Multiple Answer - 1 point

When you turn a question into a quiz question, a slider will appear next to each answer. Toggle to show which is the correct answer. The score for that answer will change to 1. When you make multiple answers possible (this option appears under the answer options), you will be able to indicate more than one correct answer. In this case the respondent will receive 1 point for every correct answer and 0 points for every wrong answer he/she indicates.

4 Multiple Answer - 'All Correct'-score

When you turn a question into a quiz question and make multiple answers possible, a feature will appear called give score when all correct answers are selected. If you turn on this feature, the score boxes next to the answers will disappear. You will be able to determine a score (score when answers are correct) that the respondent will get when he/she answers the entire question correctly.


This means that he/she only gets a score when all the correct answers are chosen. When he/she indicated a wrong answer or not all of the correct answers, he/she will get the score you determined in the score when answers are wrong
