How scoring & completion works


When is the learners score sent? (Sends the call ‘Should_send_score’ to your LMS)

The learners score is sent if:

The current page is the last in the course (highest position number NOT last seen).

…Or…

Send final score on this page has been set on the current page in the ‘Page settings’ menu:

All_questions_answered

We send the call All_questions_answered if all scored questions within the course have been answered.

When is the learners Pass/Fail sent to the LMS?

Score and Pass/Fail is sent to the LMS if:


Should_send_score is YES.

…OR…

All_questions_answered is YES.

…AND…

There are are scored questions.

…AND…

if Score has not been sent before OR questions have been retaken if allowed by this setting:

When is the Complete/Incomplete sent to the LMS?

Complete/Incomplete is sent to the LMS if:


Complete hasn’t been sent already.

…AND…

Complete has been achieved (set according to the ‘Consider course completed after % of pages’ slider in the ‘Configure’ > ‘Scoring’ menu).

…OR…

Should_send_score is YES.

When is the Session Termination sent?

Session Termination is sent when:

Termination has not been sent already.

…AND…

Progress = 100 (i.e. all pages have been completed).

…AND…

Should_send_score is YES.

Session Termination has the effect of resetting bookmarking in Online Public URL and API releases.

When are Question Pools shuffled? (sends the call ‘Should_shuffle_question_pools’)

Has the effect of removing the score and progress for pages/questions that are part of a question pool, immediately AFTER the current page (i.e. as soon as a link it clicked).

Question pools will reshuffle if ‘Automatically shuffle question pools’ in the ‘Configure’ > ‘Scoring’ menu is set to YES:

…AND…

Should_send_score is YES.

How is scoring calculated?

Scoring in Elucidat is percentage based.

Each page that is set to be scored will contribute to the final score.

For example, if I have a project where there are 10 scored questionnaire pages, each scored page will be contribute 10% to the final score.

…or if I have a project where there are 5 scored questionnaire pages, each scored page will be contribute 20% to the final score.


How is the percentage score sent from each page calculated?

Scoring is sent from each page as either Correct, Incorrect or Partially correct (Partially correct can be turned off in the Project Configuration if you require).

If your learner answers correctly the full amount of percentage for that page will be sent.

If your learner answers partially correct the half the amount of percentage for that page will be sent.

If your learner answers incorrectly the nothing will be sent.

For example:

If I have a Project where there are 10 scored questionnaire pages, and my learner answers 1 of these scored pages correctly (in this case Question 1), a score of 10% will be added to the Project score.

If I have a project where there are 10 scored questionnaire pages, and my learner answers 1 of these scored pages partially correct, a score of 5% will be added to the Project score.

If I have a project where there are 10 scored questionnaire pages, and my learner answers 1 of these scored pages incorrectly, a score of 0% will be added to the Project score.

Can I send multiple scores from the same page?

Elucidat will only allow you to send one score from a page at a time.

For example, if you have a page with two questionnaires on, your learner will need to submit a correct answer for both of them in order to send the full score amount for that page.

If your learner has submitted a correct answer on your page, but then any subsequent questions have been answered incorrectly a ‘Partially correct’ score will be given for that page.


For example, here I have a page with three questionnaires on, if the first question is answered correctly and then the learner answers any subsequent question incorrectly, they will receive a ‘Partially correct’:
