Default assessment scoring in Obojobo is simple. Each attempt score is an average of all question responses and the Overall Assessment Score is the highest of these scores. However, you can modify how scores are calculated using a rubric. The rubric is a very powerful feature that allows for flexible scoring rules but can make scoring a little complex. This section will outline in detail how Obojobo scores Assessments.
- Raw Attempt Score is calculated based on question answers.
- rubric is used to determine the Attempt Status.
- rubric combines Attempt Status and Raw Score into Post-Rubric Score.
- The highest of all Post-Rubric Scores becomes the Overall Assessment Score.
Raw Attempt Score
Raw Attempt Scores are calculated as an average of all question responses:
Raw Attempt Score = Correct questions / Total questions × 100
Attempt Status represents the state of an attempt. It is determined by rules set in the rubric. The Attempt Status is used to calculate the Post-Rubric Score.
|passed||Student passed the attempt.|
|failed||Student failed the attempt.|
|unableToPass||Student has no attempts remaining and did not achieve a

The Post-Rubric Score is the score the student receives for an Attempt. This score is what they’ll see when reviewing an attempt. It can include changes like bonuses or deductions from score mods

|Rubric Type||Assessment Status||Post-Rubric Score|
