FAQ

How is my overall score calculated?

Your overall score is an average of all your category scores. Play all the games in each category to receive an overall score. Once you receive an overall score, you will be assigned one of four levels based on that overall score: Beginner (0 – 499), Intermediate (500 – 749), Advanced (750 – 899), or Expert (900 – 1000). The more you play, the better your chances of improving your overall score and achieving the next level!

How is my category score calculated?

Category scores are calculated as the average of your top three scores for each game within a category. Categories include Mental Fitness, Verbal, and Math.

How is each game score calculated?

Within each game, you gain points for correct answers and lose points for incorrect answers. Your final game score is based on the number of correct answers minus the number of incorrect answers. View the Score Details at the end of each game to see how many questions you answered correctly!
