Set Weights for Questions
Posted by Prasad De Silva, Last modified by on 25 February 2014 01:08 AM

This will allow admin to specify weights for the questions at the time of creating. Weights are ranging from 1 to 5 and weight 5 carriers the maximum weight. When the exam is graded the score will depend on the weight of questions.

Setup

  • From the Admin site - Go to Curriculum – Course – Lesson – Objective
  • When you create your question, you can select the weight for that question. Default value set to 1.

Logic

When the exam is graded the score will depend on the weight of questions

example Assume Q1 - weight = 2 Q2 - weight = 3 Q3 - weight = 4 Q4 - weight = 1 Q5 - weight = 5 Let's assume student got these 5 questions in a exams got Q1, Q2, Q3 correct and Q4 and Q5 wrong So the score should be (sum of weights of all question the student got right) * 100 / (sum of weights of all question the student got in exam)

Ex (2+3+4)X100/(2+3+4+1+5) = 9 X 100 / 15 = 60%
