    You simply need to click on the "Add Form Element" tab, then click on "Widgets", and look for the Form Calculation field, example:

    As far as I understood your idea when checking the form you shared, it seems that you're trying to assign calculation values to a dropdown choice of the Input table. 

    Please note, that when setting the values you must separate the columns with comma, but I can see just 1 column at your Input table:

    I've made some tests, but unfortunately could not find a way to assign calculation values to a dropdown field of the Input table.

    Summing up, I can suggest to split the dropdown choices into 3 columns named "Yes", "No", "NA". You'll be able to set the calculation values afterwards as "2, 1, 0" for every row:
