Overview

Learners earn or lose points for every action they take in the Security Journey Platform.

Points calculations are cumulative, this means that each quiz attempt adds or removes points from the learner's total. With one exception, we don't take away points for a lower quiz result on a subsequent try.

If the Rate Your Knowledge questions are activated in the Platform, learners earn 1 point each time they answer the question.

The following examples illustrate point calculations in some common scenarios:
โ€‹

Example A - Learner Improves Quiz Score over Multiple Attempts:

  • Quiz Attempt #1: Scores 60% = -50 points

  • 70% or below fails

  • Quiz Attempt #2: Scores 80% = +80 points

  • Quiz Attempt #3: Scores 100% = +20 points

  • The difference between the last passing score and the current score

  • Total points for module = 50 points

Example B - Quiz Score Varies with Multiple Attempts:

  • Quiz Attempt #1: Scores 80% = 80 points

  • Quiz Attempt #2: Scores 60% = No points

  • There is no penalty since the first attempt is a passing score

  • Quiz Attempt #3: Scores 100% = +20 point

  • The difference between the last passing score and the current score

  • Total points for module = 100 points

Here's how we report this in the Platform:

A learner can find their User History by going to their User Profile > History.

Point Values:

  • Pass a Quiz with 80% questions correct + 80 points

  • Pass a Quiz with 90% questions correct + 90 points

  • Pass an Quiz with all questions correct + 100 points

  • Rate your knowledge prior to completing a lesson + 1 point

  • Rate your knowledge after completing a lesson + 1 point

  • Fail a Quiz for the first time - 50 points

  • Complete a quest + 500 points

  • Complete a path + 1000 points
