    You could assign calculation values to the questions in your form, and then get the total for all those answered ones, this guide will help you to assign a calculation value: https://www.jotform.com/help/301-How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value 

    And this guide will help you to perform calculation on your form: https://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-Perform-Form-Calculation-Using-a-Widget 

    You may also provide us more details about what you're trying to achieve, for example, if you're trying to get a score based on your answers, you could also share us the link to the form you're working on, we will be glad to take a look.

    Example:

     

    1. Question number 1?

    a. Answer "a" is worth 2 points

    b. Answer "b" is worth 3 points

    c. Answer "c" is worth 4 points

     

    2. Question number 2?

    a. Answer "a" is worth 2 points

    b. Answer "b" is worth 3 points

    c. Answer "c" is worth 4 points

     

    I would like a field to show the combined total points of the answers.

    For instance, if the the surveyor chose answer "b" for question 1 and answer "c" for question 2, total points would be 7.

     

    Thank you.
