Can I provide an interpretation based on point value tally of questions?

    I want to create a magazine type quiz where you assign different point values for each of the multiple choice answers, and then you tally them and have an interpretation based on the point range they fall in. Is that possible with jotform? I am thinking it could incorporate sending them to a different landing page depending on their point tally?

    Hi,

    By interpretation , you must be looking at the form's submission results

    You can redirect the form after submission to a different landing page using the Custom URL redirect in the Thank You page configuration 

     

    Here is my idea -- you can integrate the form to google spreadsheet to get the submission results. And using google spreadsheet formula, you can tally/compute the resulting points.

    You can then publish/display this results in the redirect landing page (another page or just another form)

    The only complication of this idea is you cannot filter it per user.. meaning all the results will be displayed at once (not for each individual)

    But if you need for more complex data submissions manipulation, you can use the post method describe in this guide How-to-Post-Submission-Data-to-Thank-You-Page

    Hope this help. Do inform us if you require any assistance on this or if you have any other input/idea.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    I realized I might have described a bit of complex solution.

    Just to be sure, I wanted to also show you that the submission results can be easily displayed in your own form (without the tallying/computation) like this form https://www.jotform.com/form/11242225225 

     

    Thanks

    I think your first answer was more what I was thinking. Can I assign a
    point value to different choices in a radio button style?

     "Can I assign a point value to different choices in a radio button style?"

    You can, but only after the results -- as you will have to provide interpreted value for them in order to compute/tally them.

    You can also make use of the 'ratings fields' found among the Survey tools --- they have rating value already..
