    Is there anyway to set up a form to have questions and let them know if the answer is correct?

    I think I have figured out a way to do it with answer question one correctly or you can't move to question 2. But is there another way to let them know if that response was correct or not?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out to us!

    You can show a Paragraph field that shows the success message based on the respondent's answer(s) using Conditional Logic.

    Below is an example.

    @askthechiro -- are you saying you want to restrict users from being able to answer subsequent questions unless the previous question(s) are answered correctly, or you just want to be able to show them if the question response was correct or incorrect to each question regardless (and allow them to still answer all no matter what)?

    I figured out how to have a correct answer show per question. What the user wants is to have 3 questions and based on the answer have it show how many are correct without showing which ones were correct/incorrect, such as: 1 out of 3 were correct or 2out of 3 were correct or "you got them all"

    Chiro, did you get this to work? I'm looking to do something similar and can't get Ben's solution working.

    OK, i'll try that. I was looking at your original form you posted and I didn't see it working there so figured you might not have had any luck either. Thanks!

    No idea what I'm doing wrong.. and it looks like Ben's original example got deleted now.. No idea why. But Ben or Chiro if either of you could email me at cjameson at jixr dot com and share the form you have working with me directly I think i can import it that way? No problem if you can't, i know people are busy. Thanks in advance either way!

    I guess Ben must be MIA. Thanks for your replies askthechiro. If you still have Ben's original form link or another one that was working, awesome.. otherwise I'll try to find someone on upwork that I can pay to do this I guess... because I guess I can't figure this one out, lol.

    An update to this for anyone else in the same predicament.

    My web dev made the following modifications as we only wanted to show the number of answers correct AFTER the form was submitted. So that is what is done here:

    https://form.jotform.com/213257368530153

    The user will not be shown any feedback until all responses are submitted this way, and the "You got <number> answers correct." is only shown on the thank you / confirmation page. Also, just in case it matters to your use case -- we also enabled strict uniqueness (cookies + IP) check under the "form settings -> more options" section.
