There is not a uniformly accepted means of scoring these questionnaires. The PISQ-12 can be scored by assessing individual factors (behavioral/emotive, physical/partner-related). A global score is designated based on the sum of all answers or by multiplying the number of answered items by the mean, when answers were missing. The McCoy questionnaire is assessed based on individual items' scores.

As with other aspects of QOL assessment, looking at each individual answer can be very helpful in assessing individual needs and areas to focus therapy on.
