How automatic scoring works

PeopleTest will automatically score objective test questions like multiple-choice, true/false, matching, order a list, and select all that apply. Fill-in-the-blank and short answer questions will be automatically scored if responses match your correct answers exactly; otherwise, they will be flagged as requiring review. Essay questions will always require review.

Multiple-choice and true/false questions can also trigger a follow-up question depending on the rules you set. The follow-up question will be automatically scored if the answer provided matches your correct answer.
