Displaying scores can be as easy as “You scored 5/10”, but that doesn’t always cut it. If you'd find it helpful to show scores for all outcomes, not just the winning one, here's how you can do it.

Your projects can show scores for all outcomes in several ways:

Outcome Distribution by Points

Outcome Distribution by Percentage With Bar Charts

How to Activate This Function

Start by making sure that your project is an Answer-Based Outcome one.

Then you can either just drag and drop the "Outcome Distribution" element into the outcome page.

Or you can also do it manually by drag and dropping a "Score" element into your outcome pages and on the right side of your screen you'll see the following options:

Ticking "Distribution of all outcome points" will add a list of scores for all the outcomes in your project. Alternatively, ticking "Distribution of all outcomes in %" will show the score's percentage for each outcome.

Keep in mind that this is only displayed correctly when there is a score to be counted, so you won’t be able to see the distribution with actual values in the editor nor the in design preview.

To see what your users will see, click the eye icon on the top right of the editor and select the option "Try draft" to try the project out and see how the scores are displayed.

You can also limit the amount of outcomes that are shown (eg. top 3 scores), you just need to set the limit.

If you'd like to display the winning score differently, you can drag & drop in a second Score/Outcome Distribution element with the default "Outcome points for {outcome name}" ticked. You can style this element as you like.

Add Outcome Distribution to Your Emails

When sending out custom emails to your participants it is possible to include the outcome distribution on them. All you need to do is pick the right variable from the list.

You can open the variables menu either by typing @, or by clicking the plus (+) icon.

ℹ️ Outcome distribution is also included on notification emails and XLS exports.
