Categorizing questions in your Exam can be a great way to measure the score per category, and get insight into your participants' knowledge.

Some Exams might cover several subjects that are combined together in one test. That will generate a general score at the end of the Exam. If you tag each question with a certain label, the system can also generate a score per category.

This is how you can tag the questions of your Exam.
