The Higg FEM scores each impact area (i.e. section) equally. Each section consists of 100 points. A total Higg FEM score is based on a possibility of 100 points, so each section score is worth an equal portion (14.3%) of the total points assigned to the total Higg FEM score.

Higg FEM questions span three levels for each impact area. Levels are not equally weighted. Higg FEM weighs Level 2 higher than the other levels because the questions in this level are focused on driving key performance improvement measures such as setting targets and tracking reductions.

- Level 1 is worth 25% out of the 100 total section points. (Unless the applicability questions stop you at Level 1, then the Level 1 is worth 100% of the 100 total section points.)
- Level 2 is worth 50% out of the 100 total section points
- Level 3 is worth 25% out of the 100 total section points

The above score distribution is the same as in FEM 3.0. The difference between FEM 3.0 and FEM 4.0 is that at least one or more questions are being scored in each level in Higg FEM 4.0.
