Set up scoring for questions

Learn how to set up scoring for questions in templates via the web app and the mobile app.

How does scoring work at the question level?

By setting up scoring at the question level, you can change your question's weighting depending on its importance. This way, some questions will be worth more points than others.

Score values can be assigned or removed from a specific question by adjusting its max score value. Changes made only apply to the specific question, giving you the flexibility needed when building templates.

When it's not relevant, you can also remove scoring per question or disable scoring from the template entirely to ensure you only get to record what's needed.

You can also change the score values for responses within a custom response set.

Limitations

Published changes made to templates only apply to new inspections moving forward.

Frequently asked questions

Negative scoring is not supported at this stage. If you need negative scoring in your inspection template, please let us know by providing your feedback.

Disabling and re-enabling scoring will reset score values to 0. This means you would need to set up your score values at the question level again.

Score values for custom response sets will be kept intact.
