In this application we have sort of a multiple choice questionnaire to fill out. The Business Owner set the requirement of showing the Current Score on page in the format of: "CurrentScore/MaxScore"
However, it has now become apparent that the MaxScore is variable as some answers cause the question's score to be disregarded.
eg. If you answer "N/A" to a Question that can normally score 1 point, then the MaxScore is reduced by 1.
This makes me wonder how the Current Score should be displayed. Here are the options I've come up with. Are any of these an accepted way of showing scores like this?
- CurrentScore/CurrentMaxScore (IE, when no answers are given, max score is Zero and the max score grows as relevant answers are given). E.g. 0/0 then 1/1 then 1/2.
- CurrentScore/MaxScorePossible (IE, when no answers are given, max score is the max score possible if all relevant answers are given, but as N/A answers are give, max score drops). E.g. 0/10, then 1/10 then 1/9.
- CurrentScore (IE, don't even show the MaxScore)
