An assessment score is determined by the total number of points that can be accumulated on the assessment form. The total number of points is in turn determined by the points assigned to each question that appears on the assessment form.
Question scores can be any integer, positive or negative. Questions may also be unscored. Different questions can have different point values. For instance, a question that measures a highly critical objective can carry more weight by having a score of say 5 points, whereas other questions that measure less critical objectives may only be worth 1 point. It is possible to do partial credit scoring in Questionmark. If a question’s maximum score is five points, it’s possible that a participant may earn a score of one, two, three, or four in addition to zero or five.
