Question weight or point value in a question set?

Is it possible to add a point value to a question in a question set? For example one question is very difficult so it has point value of 3 for correct answer and another is easy and has point value 1. Then, during quiz evaluation, those values could be taken into account by the algorithm to tell whether the quiz is passed or failed. Is it implementd, if not then is there an API to do it?

We don't have support for this yet. Definitively something the devs of Quiz would accept a pull request for. Repo is here.

Thank you for the feedback!

Is it possible to add different point values for questions (multiple choice, T/F, etc.), or are they still set at 1pt?  If they are still set at 1pt, will this/can this be added?

Hi Jared,

The features are still the same. Once question is alloted 1 pt. No one has taken on the project yet. What you can do since this is an old thread is to post a feature request. In order for your feature request to attract as much interest as possible make sure it follows the below guidelines:


  1. It is clear from every perspective how the feature will work. We recommend describing the feature with one or more user stories, for instance “As an author, I want it to be possible to pick between different effects for the check answer animation so that the learner will see a variety of effects and also I can adapt the effects to my target audience(I’ll be using pink unicorns which works really well for both my target audience which are 4 year old girls and venture capitalists)”

  2. If the feature can be illustrated with images or videos it always helps

  3. Make it clear what content types this is relevant for, and or if this is a new content type


Make sure you post the feature in the Feature Request forum.
