Evaluation algorithm

Each of your question has maximum amount of points candidate can receive for it.

For example, if a numeric input question has maximum 3 points and the candidate answers it correctly, they receive 3 points.

When calculating the test score, answers to questions are evaluated and for each answer two values are set:

  • Maximum score: the highest amount of points the candidate can receive for the answer
  • Obtained score: the amount of points the candidate received for the answer

The test score is then calculated as obtained points divided by maximum points.

How different question types are evaluated?

Free text and code input

  • If no answer is given:
    The answer is included in the overall test score, but given zero points.
  • If answer is given:
    The answer is not included in the overall test score, until it is manually evaluated.
  • Once the answer is manually evaluated:
    The answer becomes included in the test score.

Single choice and picture choice

  • If the correct option is selected:
    Candidate receives full points.
  • If any other option, or no option is selected:
    Candidate receives zero points.

Multiple choice

  • For each correctly chosen option 1 mark is added
  • For each incorrectly chosen option half a mark is taken

If the total number of marks is less than 0, the answer receives no points. But if the total number of marks is more than 0, the number of marks is divided by the number of correct options and multiplied by the maximum points for the question.

Numeric input

  • If the answer is correct
    Candidate receives full points.
  • If the answer is incorrect
    Candidate receives zero points.
