Excel help (if then formulas)

I need Microsoft excel help, I'm trying to design a spreadsheet to grade my students tests.
There are 20 answers.  To make it easier, I need a function to test If question 1 = c than 1 pt is given otherwise if question 1 = b or a, 0 pt is given. The answers will vary, so I need a function that will suffice all 20 questions.  Thanks!

With your above example, you can have a simple formula.

=If(A1="c",1,0)

well, while that sounds simple...I just get a bunch of ####### in my cell. Specifically the E column has the correct answers.......so I tried a formula in the e column =IF(E90="c",1,0)
The correct answer is C in E90
any ideas????

Try this for all 20 questions

If you list the question answers somewhere on the worksheet, e.g. in  Z2:Z21 then assuming that the student answers are entered in E2:E21 just use this formula in F2 copied down

=(E2=Z2)+0

see attached
