Weight Allocation

What if a user needs to allocate weight to a question of the particular category?

QEval also provides the functionality to apply weights (marks) to question(s) of the categories. The procedure is the same as allotting a weight to the category, with an additional factor of checking the Question Weight Required to create a weight-based question. This is as shown in the below screen:

How is a weight allocated to the category?

Firstly, an evaluation form is created by an authorized user with Admin rights. Now, follow the steps mentioned below:

  • Select Manage > Forms as shown below:

  • The Design Form page will be displayed as shown below:

  • Click on the Create Evaluation Form button.

The following screen appears:

  • Select Start with a blank evaluation form which will open up the list of options on the same screen.

  • To create a weight-based category, the user needs to select the Yes radio button under Category weight based

  • Once the new form configuration is done, click on the  button. Then the system will redirect to the newly created form.
  • To provide weight to the category, click on the Add New Category button displayed on the form page.

  • Select Start with a blank category on the pop-up screen, which will list out the following options shown on the below screen:

  • From the above screen, weight can only be allocated to a category only if the user selects the Scorable checkbox and configures the weight details.

  • This condition will be applicable to all the created categories.

What is meant by weight of a category?

There are certain questions which have more importance when compared with the other question. Keeping up with this logic, the concept of weight has been implemented in the software where a question of a category can be provided with more weight than other questions. Please note that weight here means total marks or points associated with that question.
