    How can I calculate the Results of a Multiple Choice Test?

    Asked by ECSystems on November 24, 2015 at 06:24 AM

    Hello there,


    I have 100 questions (multiple choice type) and I need to receive the total results of the test when the click on "send".


    Wrong answer 0

    Empty answer 0

    Correct answer 1


    I suppose I have to fill in "calculation values" per each question, but I don't have the knowledge to express that. Can anybody help me, please?

    I see that you would like to create a 100 question test to display which answers are Right, Wrong, or got left as Empty.

    Based on your current explanation of the scenario you've provided above I believe the assignment of calculated values would likely be best. But from what I understand it seems to me that you need help with assigning calculation values to your fields. I'd like to point out that we have this guide here http://www.jotform.com/help/301-How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value which can help you set that up.

    If you wish to go another route though you may find these two options below helpful as well.

    Hello KadeJM,

    I need to receive the total results by email, together with some contact data and a composition.



    've been having a look at the templates and I think they only give the results to the user, at the end of the test on the Thank you form. Is that right?


    Besides, I don't see the calculation values to apply them to my own quiz.


    In conclusion, I need to receive something like that:







    Previous experience: (text)

    Composition (text)


    Quiz Results, total: 34 (the result comes from all the correct answers, being 1).


    I do not need to receive the 100 answers, just the results, but I do not know what to write on the "calculation values" on every question or what to do next.


    I hope you can help me. Thanks a lot for your time.

    Please take a look at the demo form:


    You can clone it if you want.

    In order to achieve this you need to add calculation values to your radio-button questions (1 for the right answer, 0 for the wrong ones):

    Now you can add a calculation field and add all the radio-button fields (this field could be hidden, otherwise users can calculate right answer):


    Now you can edit your email notification/auto-responder so that it only includes the calculation field and not the 100 radio-button fields:


    Let us know if we can assist you further.
