How Report Scoring Works

This article will go over how myITprocess generates scoring for the report.  This can give you clarification on how to optimally design your questions. 

Scoring in myITprocess can be thought of in the same manner as a gymnastics score - the total score is what is possible to achieve and a combination of the number of questions multiplied by the weight of the priority and the vCIO answer is the actual score.  The main factor involved when arriving at a score is the Priority that has been assigned to each question. For example, if you have 10 questions and based on the table below, each question has a Priority marked as High or 5 points, it is possible to achieve the highest score of 50 points or a 100% score on the report (50/50 = 1 or, 100%).  Priority assigning affects the scoring mechanism in that if all 10 questions (from the example above) have their Priority marked as Medium, the highest possible score would now be out of a possible 30 points.

Priorities affect the scoring mechanism. The priorities weight the score results in the following manner:

High 5


Low 1


The priority is a multiplier that weights the question based on how important it is to be in alignment. High priority questions are worth 5 points, medium worth 3 points and low worth 1 point. The vCIO answer determines how many points are awarded based on the business alignment:

vCIO Answer
Points Awarded
Aligned with Best Practice 100%


Highly Vulnerable 0%


The priority combined with the vCIO response thus generate the following matrix:

vCIO Answer
Aligned with Best Practice 5 / 5 3 / 3 1 / 1

2.5 / 5

1.5 / 3

0.5 / 1

Highly Vulnerable 0 / 5 0 / 3 0 / 1
