    Is it possible to assign points to individual questions; then have the form tally and total points to show the participant once the form is submitted?

    Asked by eturpin on October 26, 2014 at 10:20 AM

    For example,

    I am building a survey and want to assign point values to questions (1-9).

    If a participant selects option 1, he may receive 2 points / if he selects option 2, he may receive 0 points.

    Once he completes the survey, I want the form to show him his total points score AND I want that score to include a blurb indicating what the score means (eg. You scored 5 points - you may be risk risk for developing diabetes.)

    tally then and survey

    Hi eturpin,

    You can use our quiz applications to get your desired result in your form.

    Quiz Builder allows you to build your quiz to place in your form. Quiz Form allows you to turn your form into a quiz.

    I hope this helps. Please inform us if you need additional assistance.

    Thank you for the response, however - when trying to use Quiz Builder, it won't load (error message says "This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies").

    The webpage at http://www.jotform.com/quiz/ has resulted in too many redirects. Clearing your cookies for this site or allowing third-party cookies may fix the problem. If not, it is possibly a server configuration issue and not a problem with your computer.

    It seems that there is an issue with Quiz Builder. I am reporting this issue separately to our next level support for a fix.

    Please give a try with our Quiz Form App to see if it works for you. Alternatively, you can also use calculation values on radio buttons to calculate the score of points. To achieve this we need to assign calculation values for each option of questions.

    Then you can use our Form Calculation widget to sum up the values and display the result.

    Based on the total score, you can use our conditions wizard to display your result.

    Hope this information helps. Please let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.
