How to Create a Scored Survey


ProProfs allows you to add scoring to a survey to convert your survey into an assessment, evaluation, or lead qualification tool. With scored surveys, you can assign values to each response option the survey taker selects. The data collected from such a survey helps you effectively measure your respondents' satisfaction and opinions.

Benefits of a scored survey:

  • Create customer satisfaction surveys and follow up with customers whose survey score represents a poor satisfaction level.
  • Turn your survey into an online assessment with scoring done by assigning points to each response option.
  • Conduct effective market research by turning survey responses into measurable statistical data.


Let us look at a classic example of a scored survey when it is used to analyze customer satisfaction:


Example of scored survey


The survey above has points assigned to its answers. The points can be evaluated in the reports section.


Survey Question: Would You Recommend Our Product To A Colleague Or A Friend?


Survey Response Options:

  • Yes: 5 points
  • No: 0 points


You can use the points they've scored and categorize your customers into Satisfied (5 points) and Unsatisfied (0 points). Similarly, you can use scored surveys for training, education, or marketing purposes.
