# How is the Earz score determined?

In principle you get 10 points x level number for each correct answer.

Example: correct answer on level 3 = 30 points.

The grade is in principle: percentage of maximum / 10. (This can be adjusted by the teacher).

Example: of the 500 maximum points, you obtained 400 = 80%. Grade: 8

However, there are more factors that influence the score:

–*how often you click* on ‘hear again’ 1)

–*how long it takes* you to answer 2)

–*weighting* for open questions 3)

1) Clicking on ‘answer again’ can be done a maximum of 5 times.

-The first 2x gives no deduction.

-The 3rd, 4th and 5th times give 20% deduction each time. If you get it right after 5 clicks you score 40%.

-For modules Rhythm and Melody: you can click a maximum of 10 times, first 4 times no deduction, after that always 10% off (which also leaves 40% if you answer correctly).

2) There are games (such as Note Reading, Theory and Quiz) where the answer may depend on the time.

In that case you get the maximum score in the first 20% of the total time for a correct answer and it then decreases (linearly) to a score of 0 when the time is up.

3) Open-ended questions are assessed by the teacher with 0-10 points per question.
