The scoring algorithm for a Quiz

After each answered question the potential score per question increases. Have a look at the first column in the diagram below (question points).

The first question is worth 100 points. Every next question is worth more points and these extra points increase by 100 for every question.

The points per Question X are calculated by adding X*100 points to the points for Question X-1:
points (Qx) = points (Qx-1) + (x*100)

But wait, there's more! There's also time bonus for each question that provides extra points. This way a user obtains more points when a question is answered quickly. It's a multiplier of the points that a question is worth and the maximum multiplier is 0.8

See the example below for an indication of the maximum score for a Quiz with 7 questions:
