# What's the difference between endline accuracy and user score?

If you view the **Course Progress** data for a specific course you will see a panel that looks like the one below. In the user table you will notice each user has a **User score (%)** and an **Endline accuracy (%)**.

**How is the User score calculated?**

Each time someone completes an endline quiz (i.e. a quiz after a lesson) they will receive a score. Each quiz has 4 questions so this score will either be 0%, 25%, 50%, 75% or 100%. The overall **User score** is an average of the scores for each quiz in the course. So if a user scores 50% on the first quiz and 100% on the second quiz then their **User score** will be 75%.

A user can retake quizzes as much as they like to increase their score. So if the same user retakes the first quiz to get 100% then they will have 100% on the first quiz and 100% on the second quiz which will make their overall **User score** 100%.

### How is the Endline accuracy calculated?

The **Endline accuracy** (%) is calculated as the total number of endline quiz questions answered correctly divided by the total number of endline quiz questions answered. You can see the number of **Endline answers (Correct)** and the number of **Endline answers (Total)** in the table.

### How can these figures help me understand my users?

Let's compare the two users listed in the table below. This data refers to a course which contains just one endline quiz:

From this data we can deduce the following:

- Joseph took the quiz once (he has answered only 4 endline quiz questions) and whereas Wendy took the quiz twice (she has answered 8 endline quiz questions).
- Joseph scored 100% on his first attempt (he has an endline accuracy of 100% and a user score of 100%)
- Wendy scored 100% on her second attempt but must have scored 50% on her first attempt as her endline accuracy is only 75%

**Therefore we know that both learners now have strong knowledge of the topic (scoring 100% in their final attempt) but that Joseph performed better in the course as he did not need to retake the quiz.**
