Adding funky scoring!

This week I thought I’d show you how to add funky scoring to your work!

This is a great way of giving your learner gamified feedback.

Rather than having a boring ‘You have achieved 100%’ you can display ‘You have received 30000 points!’

To begin with I built out my course structure using the Get Started wizard.

I built the course with three scored pages and 1 feedback page:

To begin with I added question and answer text to my Scored pages and set which of my answers was correct (if you are unfamiliar with how to do this see here).

I set the page to be scored by opening ‘Page settings’, choosing the ‘Scoring & completion’ tab and then choosing either ‘User submitting a score’ or ‘User submitting a CORRECT score’:

At the same time I set my ‘Score weighting’ for each page by looking at the ‘Score weighting’ section which is lower down in the ‘Scoring and completion’ tab.

I then added a number to this box, in this case I’m going to add ‘10000’ because I want my learner to earn 10000 points for every question they get correct:

This process needs to be repeated for each of my scored pages.

So at this point my project was all set up so that the score would calculate how I wanted, with a high score of 30000 points.

Next I need to set up my ‘Results’ page so that my learner can see their score.

To do this I entered the ‘Total score (number)’ clip (for more information on ‘Clips’ click here) into the text box on the right:

…this means that if my learner completes the course, the ‘Clip’ will automatically convert to the users score:

Give it a go and let me know how you get on, if you have any questions please get in touch!
