How Does Scoring Work in a Personality Quiz?


In ProProfs Quiz Maker, you can give scores to quiz takers taking a personality quiz. Since a personality quiz has no definite right or wrong answers, the result type is a bit different.


The points are assigned based on the answer option selected by the quiz taker. Each answer option is associated with a personality (the result type) that gets points for its selection. In the end, the personality with the most points is shown to the Quiz Maker.


You can add scoring to your personality quiz in 3 simple steps:


  1. Create a personality quiz. (Read this article on how to create a personality quiz.)

  2. Add points to result types. 

  3. Save your quiz.

And you’re done!


What are the result types?

When users finish taking a personality test, they find certain "personalities" or "attributes" as result types at the end of the quiz.
