How Questions are scored

Students are given two chances to answer each question. A total of 60 seconds is allowed for each question. If the correct answer is given on the first try, ten points are awarded, plus bonus points based on the speed of the answer are earned as follows:
Time Bonus Points
60-56 seconds 5
55-51 seconds 4
50-56 seconds 3
45-41 seconds 2
40-36 seconds 1
35- 0 seconds 0
On the second try, just five points are awarded for the correct answer and no bonus points are possible.
A line will appear at the top of the answer screen to let you know how many points you got on the question or the correct answer if you did not get the correct question either time.
