Notice - October 11: Challenges do not currently support the 2000 points option. A mobile app update will be launched in the next week or two adding support for this. |

When you add or edit any question that awards points, look for this nifty toggle:

By default, questions offer up to 1000 points when a player responds correctly. You can toggle this to 0 or 2000 if you'd prefer.

### How points work

Points are awarded based on speed of answer. This is how points are calculated:

**Divide response time by the question timer**. For example, a player responded 2 seconds after a 30-second question timer started. 2 divided by 30 is 0.0667.**Divide that value by 2**. For example, 0.0667 divided by 2 is 0.0333.**Subtract that value from 1**. For example, 1 minus 0.0333 is 0.9667.**Multiply points possible by that value**. For example, 1000 points possible multiplied by 0.9667 is 966.7.**Round to the nearest whole number**. For example, 966.7 is 967 points.

For math wizards, this is expressed as rounding:

(( 1 - (( [response time] / [question timer] ) / 2 )) [points possible] ).

#### Answer streak bonus points

Players are also awarded bonus points for consecutive correct answers. Here are the answer streak bonuses:

**Answer Streak 1**: 0 bonus points**Answer Streak 2**: 100 bonus points**Answer Streak 3**: 200 bonus points**Answer Streak 4**: 300 bonus points**Answer Streak 5**: 400 bonus points**Answer Streak 6**: 500 bonus points

Players can reach answer streaks higher than 6, but will only be awarded 500 bonus points thereafter. An incorrect answer will reset their answer streak to 0.

**When points are toggled to 0** - players can increase their answer streak but will not be awarded bonus points.

- For example, a player answers a 0 points question correctly, increasing their answer streak from 1 to 2 but they receive 0 bonus points. The next question awards up to 1000 points. The player answers correctly, increasing their answer streak from 2 to 3, awarding 200 bonus points.

**When points are toggled to 2000** - answer streak bonus points are not doubled.

- For example, a question with a 20-second timer awards up to 2000 points. A player answers correctly 2 seconds after the timer started, increasing their answer streak from 2 to 3. The player is awarded 1900 points and 200 bonus points.

How do I turn off reward points?

Why can I not turn off the streak option now? I always turned it off to give all students a fair chance. It makes it almost impossible for students outside the top 5 to win and they become disengaged. I dislike that this is forced on us now.

I want to turn off points for some questions. How can I do that?
