Using Netigate for tests and quizzes
Netigate can be used in multiple different ways, one of them is for tests and quizzes in order to measure knowledge level and skills.
To set up the functionality for tests and quizzes, you need to do so by creating “Radio buttons – Weighted”. You will need to the weight in order to mark the correct answer of the question. You mark the correct answer is given by adding the weight “1” to the option that is correct, and for the other options you leave the weight blank. The “1” will mark that option to be a correct answer and worth one point in the total score. A blank weight on the other hand means that the option is incorrect.
Note: If you mark the weight with “0”, the option will be considered correct, but will add zero points to the total score. Always leave incorrect options blank.
In order for Netigate to display the questions as a test or a quiz there are a couple of settings in the surveys other settings that you will need to take into consideration:
Count correct answers: Will create a calculation of all weighted radiobuttons in your questionnaire providing the respondent with a total score based on their answers compared to the max amount of points. This score will be displayed to the respondant at the end text of the survey.
Display answers: Will give the respondent a presentation of all questions in the survey as well as what answers was provided for each of the individual questions. In combination with “Count correct answers” there will also be a presentation if the answer that was provided was correct or not, and the possibility to download you results as a PDF by clicking the icon in the top right corner of the end text.
As an example ask the question we asked the question: “In what year was Albert Einstein born?”. It would look like this for the respondant when they have completed their answer:
Adding a point system
It is also possible to use a point system where the respondents can see in what range they placed or just see their total score. For this purpose we will use an example of a questionnaire with 16 correct answers and we want the results to be presented in three different ranges.
To format the end text page with your different ranges you can follow these steps:
The ranges like the one above have to be placed at the top of the end text. This example will add one range for those that have 0-4 correct answers, one for those with 5-10 correct answers and a third one for those who have 11-16 correct answers. Just adjust these numbers in order to customize it for your own survey.
Below this you will add what will be displayed for each of the different ranges. To do this add the following:
[0-4]This text will be shown if the total score is 0-4[/0-4]
[5-10]This text will be shown if the total score is 5-10[/5-10]
[11-16]This text will be shown if the total score is 11-16[/11-16]
If you want to display the exact score for the respondent, use [score] somewhere between the different ranges.
