Scoring assessments based on points earned has been a core capability of Assessment Generator from our humble beginnings nearly 15 years ago.

But what if you wanted to show the score as a percentage of the maximum possible score? Until recently, you were out of luck.

Now Assessment Generator will automatically calculate and display users’ score as a percentage in their assessment results.

How to Set up Percentage Scoring

From within the Assessment Generator editor, click on the “Scoring” tab for your simple assessment.

Directly above the Score Interpretations banner, you will find a new option to “Show Score as Percentage”.

Click this option to show your users’ results as a percentage of the total possible score.

select show score as percentage

Your users’ results will then be presented as a percentage of the maximum possible score:

It’s that easy. In fact, this change offers so much punch that we’re wishing we’d done this a long time ago.

Thank you for choosing Assessment Generator. Enjoy!
