To create a test that yields expected results, it is essential to comprehend how the test score is calculated. Testinvite utilizes a straightforward and flexible scoring methodology that permits the creation of highly personalized scoring scenarios.

## Test score

The test-taker's **test score** is obtained by dividing ** (1) the sum of all the points earned by the test-taker** by the

*(2)***total points of the test**.

## (1) The points earned by the test taker

The points earned by the test-taker are the **sum of all the points earned from each question** that has contributed to the total points of the test.

## (2) Total points of the test

The system calculates the total points of the test by adding up the points assigned to all the questions included in the test.

## The calculation of points earned from each question

After answering a test question, the responder is given a percentage score between **100% and -100%**. If the percentage score is positive, it is multiplied by the **point value** of the test question. Conversely, if the percentage score is negative, it is multiplied by the test question's **negative multiplier**.

### Examples

- If the test-taker's answer is scored as
**100% correct**and the question is worth**1 point**, the test-taker is awarded**1 point***(100% x 1)*for that question. - If the test-taker's answer is scored as
**50% correct**and the question is worth**1 point**, the test-taker is awarded**0.5 point***(50% x 1)*for that question. - If the test-taker's answer is scored as
**25% correct**and the question is worth**4 point**, the test-taker is awarded**1 point***(25% x 4)*for that question. - If the test-taker's answer is scored as
**0% correct**and the question is worth**5 point**, the test-taker is awarded**0 point***(0% x 5)*for that question. - When the test-taker's answer is scored as
**-100% incorrect**and the question carries a**negative multiplier of 1**, the test-taker will be given**-1 point***(-100% x 1)*for that question. - When the test-taker's answer is scored as
**-50% incorrect**and the question carries a**negative multiplier of 4**, the test-taker will be given -2 point (-50% x 4) for that question.
