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.


This guide will teach you:

  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.

When you turn this question into a quiz question, you'll see a text box where you can explain the correct 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.

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 points 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

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.
