Application Question Scoring

Not every question in your screening process has to have a right or wrong answer. With Workpop’s scoring feature, you can assign a numeric score for each of the answer options, allowing you to weight responses based on how “correct” or important they are to your hiring process and better assess candidate responses.

From your My Jobs page

      1. Click on the job you'd like to add a scored assessment to.
      2. Under Job Settings (to the left of the page), select Screening Questions.
      3. Load a screening questions template, or create a new questionnaire by adding Application Questions.

Tip

To help ensure accurate scores across all applicants, we recommend that you make any scored question required. This will prompt a response from all applicants, and help you more accurately determine which candidates are a great fit for your needs.

When applying to your job, the candidate will be prompted to answer these questions prior to submitting their application. You’ll be able to see their responses directly on their application, along with their overall score:

You can also select “View Responses” to view the specific score the candidate received for each question answered:
