    How do I total my quiz?

    Asked by missmissymissm on July 28, 2014 at 11:31 AM

    The software offers a link that allows a total but when I try to use it I'm unsuccessful.  I added all the correct answers to the corresponding questions but when I run the test and click the submit button, I just receive a message that my "...total is out of 5".  But the calculation is saying that it is out of 27 (I'm unsure where the total of 5 is coming from).

    Our Quiz App should do that: http://apps.jotform.com/app/quiz_form. All you need to do is to allow the app access and create the quiz to the app. The instructions are simple which you can see to this post: https://www.jotform.com/help/289-Turn-your-form-into-a-Quiz-or-Exam-

    Now, your method is using the calculation widget. I checked the form and I don't see the TOTAL field which is currently the tag after the words "Your quiz score is" in your custom thank you message page:

    Please make sure to have the correct tag, I believe you are now using the calculation widget. Just simply change it from there. Also, make sure to create the formula in the calculation widget.
