  1. I there a way to add additional points on a multi-selection quiz that has more than one answer? For example, I have a question that has two possible answers. If only 1 is chosen, then the student gets partial points; however, if the student selects the two correct answers, there are bonus points added to the score.

    1. Hi Albe! Sure thing, if you use a multiple choice field, you can set up more than one correct answer. However, you cannot assign different points to each answer. If you need to assign different points, then I would recommend using form calculations instead. We are here for you if you need any assistance in creating your quiz form, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to us on live chat or at Have a wonderful day!

    1. Hello Abhey! Any form can be submitted multiple times by the same user. If you want to provide the form link, you can include the URL in the email notification. This way your form users will have the URL and can submit the form whenever they wish to. Have a nice day!

  2. Hi there, is there a way to include points on short and long text fields that are not single or multiple choice? Kind regards

    1. Hi yes. Go to Settings – Thank you Page and choose Show quiz results. This will show the correct answers. If you want to also show the missed ones, go to Settings – Quiz and enable the Show missed answers option.
