Step2: Set up your conditional logic and calculations

To assign scores to individual questions in your quiz, follow these steps.

Firstly, navigate to the Logic and Calculator tab and access the Advanced Logic feature.

Then, select the Add If/Else option for each question. You can specify the desired score by inserting the appropriate value.

As shown in the picture below, an example condition could be as follows:

If the answer corresponds to option 1, then apply a score of 15. This method allows you to customize the scoring system based on specific choices and responses in your quiz.

Add an admin-only field to include the awards for the top 3 quiz-takers. The admin-only field is mainly for commenting or setting status, and only owners of the form can edit it.

Step3: Create your leaderboard app

You can build an app for your leaderboard by creating a new folder and including the self-scoring quiz you just made.

You can also click on your quiz from the dashboard and start customizing your app.
