How to give score to my questionnaire questions?

Give a score to your questionnaire questions to show to your respondents how they scored at your final page. We provide a few different types of scoring features. You can select which suits your needs the best.


This guide will teach you:

  1. Quiz Scoring
  2. Custom Scoring
  3. Formulas

1. Quiz Scoring

There are multiple ways to add scoring to your quiz. When you use the quiz capability (you can take a look at our quick guide to create a quiz ), each correct answer gives you a score. 

The end result for the quiz is a gauge with the sum of the scores per answer. This score will be shown on the results pages as average for all respondents and a score per respondent. To make it simpler, add 1 point per correct answer or add multiple points, depending on the answer. Read all the different ways to use quiz scoring.

2. Custom Scoring

This feature is available for Professional, Enterprise and ReportR plans.

Custom scoring allows you to specify a variable score for each answer. So you obtain a score per survey/respondent and an average score for all your surveys/respondents. It can be useful for rating customer or employee satisfaction.

3. Formulas

This feature is available for Enterprise and ReportR plans.

Another way to make calculations based on answers given to the questionnaire is by using the formula feature. You can use the /*-+() to create formulas using variables such as answers or quiz scores to calculate an average, a percentage score, or lots more. This feature offers you lots more flexibility and complexity in calculating scores than simply allocating a numerical score for each answer.

Wondering how you can use formulas to show your respondents how they scored in an assessment? You may have made a personality assessment, work-style assessment, or any other type of assessment, and you want to give your respondents immediate feedback to show their strongest area. You can add the Formula Table variable to your final screen and have all the work done for you in an instant! 

Here's an example of how it could look. Read the formula ranking table guide to learn how to create this.

What's next?

  • Use a quiz timer to discourage respondents from searching on the internet for the right answers as they'll be out of time. Or simply use it to build up the suspense! You can select how many time the respondents have to complete your survey and what will happen when their time is up.
  • View question results feature allows you to show to your respondents how many people answered the same way or differently. It can be interesting for respondents to see how other people answered the same question and compare their results.

  • Survey Widgets are different formats of content that you can include in your survey. This allows you to  display data, for example, in graphs or tables, based on the respondent's answer. If you include variables in your data fields, your charts will display customized data from the responses. You could choose to show an answer given to a question, the score from a question or question block, or many other variables.
