Exams and activities are designed to test users' knowledge of a specific topic or content.

The grade of an exam or content activity works the following way:

  • If the evaluation consists of 10 questions, each question is worth 10 points;
  • If the evaluation consists of 2 questions, each question will then be worth 50 points, meaning that the questions's worths always add up to 100 points.

In Skore, you can create your exams, you just need to click on the Add content (+) icon in the admin's area and then select the option Exam:

A new exam is a content and you need to complete the following steps to make them: content title, description (optional), space and section which this content should be allocated (if you're still unsure about what a space or section is, check this article out).

The Content questions option is mandatory in exams but you can choose two types fo questions:

1 - Essay questions

In this option, the user can answer the question openly, there is no predetermined right or wrong answer.

To select this kind of question, click on the button as in the image below:

For this type of question, it will be necessary for the admin to evaluate the answers given by the users as of right or wrong.

2- Multiple choice questions

In this option, there is a mandatory (and unique) correct alternative. You must type the question, and place the alternatives (to add a new alternative, click Add alternative) and select the correct option.

There are two ways to check how many points a user scored on an activity.

The first one is to look on the same Worksheets page mentioned above, selecting the Evaluated tab. You may filter the worksheets by team, space, section and content.
