# Calculate scores for quizzes of differing lengths

Howdy doody Excelers,

I have been struggling all morning with what I assume is a simple problem to some of you. Everyday I have quizzes prepared, and the length of quizzes often changes. I am trying to create a spreadsheet which can automatically calculate score, given the total # of questions (variable), and the number of incorrect answers.

Specifically, I have
-A column for question # (A:A).
-On the right hand side, I have a column of questions (hidden).
-Column B is for when a student answers incorrectly, I note "Incorrect."
-Columns C and D indicate either -1 for incorrect, or +1 for correct, using a simple IF function. Columns E-F

Question:
Can anyone think of a function to determine the Correct/Total score, as displayed in E-G? Remember, the quiz lengths change on a daily basis. You may begin writing your answers...NOW! ;D

Table:
<style type="text/css"><!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}--></style>
 A B C D E F G Question # Note Incorrect Correct 57 incorrect -1 58 +1 59 +1 correct total score 56 59 95% 1 +1 2 +1 3 incorrect -1 4 +1 5 incorrect -1 6 +1 7 +1 8 incorrect -1 9 +1 10 +1 11 +1 12 +1 correct total score 9 12 75% 1 incorrect -1 2 +1 3 +1 correct total score 2 3 67%
