How does scoring work in Yarno?

Below, we're going to walk you through exactly how Yarno calculates your score, and your place on the leaderboard. It's about to get technical up in here.

Key Points

  • Each learner on a Yarno campaign has an individual score that accumulates as the learner continues through a campaign. The scoring is designed to reward regular participation, along with knowledge. 
  • Individual scoring is based on two primary components; points for answering questions (participation) and points for correct answers (correct).
  • Team scoring is based on the average score of all individual learners in the team.


Your score in Yarno is calculated based on two factors:

1. Answering correctly

This component of the score works on a sliding scale. If you answer correctly on the first try, you will receive the maximum points for that question. In a couple of days, Yarno will serve you the question again and this will be your second try, where less points are available. 

Please note: If you answer incorrect on the first try, you will still receive participation points for attempting the question.

2. Participation

Participation. Yarno gives you a little boost if you participate everyday; it is small, but it can be the difference between you and your colleagues.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. My co-worker and I both answered the same amount of questions, and got the same number correct, why is their score higher than mine?

Your co-worker may have answered more questions correct on the first try, or second try for that matter.  There is also a good chance that you may have missed a day and had to play catch up. If they have missed fewer days, their score could be higher due to their consistent participation. You could say your co-worker's consistency turned a mole hill into a mountain .\_(ツ)_/

2. My team is smaller than other teams, will this have an impact on our team performance ranking?

Team ranking is dependent on average team score:

Team score = Total score of all team members / Number of team members

So, you could be in a team of 10, and still beat a team of 50 if you answer more questions  correctly, relative to the number of questions served.
