How can I calculate a total of Multiple Choice questions that have calculation values and prevent the user from going back to make changes?

    I'm using a form for a 10 question test. It works beautifully and sends the email with a candidate's answers but I'm trying to include a number box at the end to total the correct answers. 


    I've created scores in the options menu but all it will give me in a number box, is a series of '1' digits


    I'd like the form to total the score adding up the score for each question. 


    How can I achieve this please?

    Sure, that can be done using a Form Calculation Widget. But, just to confirm, the 1's and 0's on the Calculation Values you assigned for each question represent a right and wrong answer respectively, correct?

    If that's the case, what you need is to add a Form Calculation Widget to your form > then add (+) all your Multiple Choice questions inside the widget.

    Many thanks.  I have that working now.  

    Is there any way I can remove the "Previous" button from the Your Score field?  I don't want people to be able to go back and amend their answers before submission.

    Hello Mark,

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to remove the Previous button. But I will forward this matter for escalation. We'll let you know once we have updates.

    Thanks Liyam.   I've managed to make it invisible using the palette and changing the colour of the button and the text to match the background.  It is of course still there but can't be seen.

    I did check your form and found that you have changed the color of back button which makes it invisible. 

    My colleague have already escalated it to our backend team. Though we cannot provide an ETA on this but we will get back to you as soon as we have any update from them.
