How does scoring work in courses?

In SafetyCulture Training, users earn scores by completing a quiz slide or a game slide in each lesson within their course. Each of these lesson slides has a default question weight of 1. For example, a course contains 5 content slides and 5 quiz slides. Only the quiz slides will contribute to the score.

If a user answers 3 quiz slides correctly on the first try, they will get 60% or 3/5 as their course score. They can retake the lesson to improve their score, and if they answer all questions correctly on a later attempt, their score will be updated to 100%.

You can set a higher question weight to a lesson slide. This means that a correct or incorrect answer to this slide will have a greater effect on the final score. Depending on the lesson's completion setting, you can also require a minimum score before the user can complete the lesson.

If you have leaderboards turned on for a course, points earned by assigned users also contribute toward their ranking in the leaderboard.
