    can a form tabulate the number of "true" answers in a 15 point checklist and display the number at the end of the form?

    Asked by Jennifergrainger on January 30, 2016 at 07:55 PM

    My account name is Jennifergrainger. The form I am referring to is the 15 point checklist.

    The participant answers true or false to each question using a check box. At the end of the checklist will be a "quiz results" letting them know where they stand depending on the number of TRUE answers they checked. It would be awkward for them to have to go back through the 15 pages to count their own number of TRUE answers. Being able to tell them at the end of the checklist how many they had would be useful. Can this be done?

    ALSO, can they print out their completed checklist when then are finished? (or at anytime, if they'd prefer to do the exercise off line)?

    Thank you

    Jennifer Grainger

    Once you have created a form, you can make this into a quiz using our QUIZ APP. This will enable you to tally the result and display the result at the end.

    Turn your form into a Quiz or Exam

    You may also print a form by adding the PRINT BUTTON

     

    Please let us know if this helps.

    Hi Jennifer

    Randy here, a fellow JotForm user. 

    I hope you don't mind if I offer an alternative solution. If you're new to JotForm, it will be challenging to create and test your own prototype.
    *** I don't have access to your form so I created a working example from scratch.

    * I opted to use a Radio button (vs. a checkbox) since an answer could either be a True or a False, but not both. 

    * If there are unanswered question(s), the "Quiz Result" button will be hidden from the test-taker. Else, if all items are answered, the user can see and click the Quiz Result button which will take them to the next section.

    * In the Quiz Result page, a breakdown of the total items for True & False are given. I used the Calculation Values functionality to get the total of True items. In this section, they can also Print and/or Submit the form with results in this section. 

    * Also, you can indicate the equivalent category of their score (if you have one. e.g. True count of 1-5 = category A, 6-10 = category B, ...). 

    Hope this helps.

    - Randy

    If you had a change to clone the Randy's form, you would see that he created a 2 page form. The first page contains all the true/false questions while the second has the calculation fields to display the result.

    Each question had a calculated value 1 for true and 0 for false. The calculation fields just add this fields together to display the result.

    Hi Jennifer

    Apologies for the late reply. Victor explained the Check your result (Quiz Result button) perfectly. 

    * N.B. the form I made only counts the True items. The False textbox field has the calculation (15 - True items). I did this shortcut because if I really want to determine how many False items were clicked, I would need to create another 15 temporary placeholders (fields) to hold all False selections (adding 15 more conditional logic). 

    Maybe the JotForm Support Team can offer a better solution on how to count selected True & False items?

    Thank you Randy.

    I have inspected calculation that is set inside of your demo form and I think that this is the easiest way to calculate number of True and False options.

    @Jennifer

    This are the calculations that Randy set inside of demo form.

    Feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.

    Hi Randy,
    Thank you for taking the time a few weeks ago to respond to my previous
    question about getting tabulated results on a Jotform. This led me to
    the Quiz App. I have been struggling with this project for way too long
    so I am reaching out to you again in hopes you can steer me in the right
    direction.
    Here is what I want to accomplish:
    1. I have created a 15 point checklist as a lead magnet for my website
    and converted it to a quiz.
    2. I used your suggestion of using radio buttons so they would get the
    results of both the true and false answers. So far so good.
    What I need help with.
    1. I want the 2nd page of the quiz that has the test results to also
    have the Scoring Key. As it is now it just shows the questions and
    whether their answers are right or wrong. How do I add the Scoring Key
    to the results page (without it also being at the end of the 1st page)?
    2. I want the email they get to be a copy of the 2nd page so they have a
    record of the questions with their score and scoring key.
    3. How do I also get that same email sent to me?
    Here is the link to the quiz: https://form.jotform.com/60307212748148
    Thank you for your help

    HI Randy
    Also regarding the 15 point checklist (
    https://form.jotform.com/60307212748148 )
    Is it also possible to have the Thank You page come up when they leave
    the results page? (I didn't see how to do that)
    Thanks

    Jeniffer, in the demo form set up by Randy, the form is not yet submitted when you see the results. In order to get the form submitted, so that notification emails can be sent and a Thank You message shown to the user, the user would have to further click on the Submit button on that second page (result page).

    In order to achieve on your own form what Randy set up in the demo, I will walk you through the steps manually.

    1. We need to assign calculation values to the answers of your fields - assign 1 for "True" and 0 for "False":

    We would do this on all 15 questions.

    2. We would add a Form Calculation widget to your form to calculate the combined value of all selected answers on your form:

    In the calculation widget, we simply use the Add Field button to add each calculation field to your form, and then add a plus sign before adding each new field to the calculation:

    Now we can use this as a result field both on your thank you page, and in your emails.

    3. In order to hide the calculation field from your form, simply click on its gear-shaped icon and select Hide Field:

    4. To have the calculation for failed answers as well, add another calculation field to your form and set it to calculate "15 - total score calculation":

    5. Hide this field from end users in the same way as step 3.

    6. This allows you to have your own Thank You message, where you can let the user know how many correct/incorrect answers they have had:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/211-Setting-Up-the-Thank-You-Page

    7. I would also highly recommend marking your questions as required, so that the form cannot be submitted unless all 15 questions have been answered. You can do that by clicking on a field, and then on its Required button at the top:

    I am not sure what you meant by "Scoring Key", so could you please describe it in a little more detail?

    To have the email with results or any custom message sent to your user, you can set up an autoresponder, for which you will have to have an email field on your form. To have an email sent to your address as well, you will also need to set up an email notification.

    You can try out a test form here:

    https://form.jotformpro.com/form/60511994214958

    You can also clone it into your own account to check further into how it was set up, or make further adjustments. Let us know if you need any further assistance, or what did you have in mind by "Scoring Key", and we will be happy to help.

    HI Boris,
    Thank you for your help. I have had help from several different sources
    so I don't know how I got the link to the custom thank page associated
    with my current form https://www.jotform.com//?formID=60307212748148 ,
    but the custom thank you page has this URL
    http://quizform.jotform.io/thankyou.php. It is on this thank you page I
    want to add the Scoring Key which tells the quiz taker to match the
    number of correct answers with the Scoring key.
    ********************************************************************************************
    SCORING:
    How Questions Did You Answer as True?
    0 - 3: is where many successful entrepreneurs start. The main challenge
    is mindset. Transitioning from the mindset of an employee to an
    entrepreneur is essential for business success. Just being aware that
    you need to make that transition is 90% of the solution. The remaining
    10% is for you to correct with the help of a trusted business coach and
    mentor.
    4 - 6: Off to a good start. Note your False answers and you’ll know what
    skills you need to upgrade or acquire.
    7 - 9: You’ve got the basics covered! Fill in the gaps by getting help
    in the areas you marked as False.
    More than 9: Must have grown up in an entrepreneurial family! Take a
    look at any statements you marked as False to know the missing puzzle
    pieces you need to fill in for phenomenal success!
    ************************************************************************************************
    If you can take the quiz yourself (of course your answers will be random
    because they don't apply to you, it is just for testing purposes) You
    will see the thank you page that comes up
    https://www.jotform.com//?formID=60307212748148
    Thank you so much. I have been working on trying to get what seems like
    should be a simple thing for days! Very frustrating.

    If you are using the quiz form app, you can edit the thank you page on the quiz app itself. 

    1. Go to the quiz form app and add your quiz form.

    2. On the setup page, click the two checkboxes seen below to open the custom result editor

    3. Input your Scoring Key on the editor

    4. Save quiz when done editing

    Your thank you page should now have the Scoring Key just like in this sample form I have created.

    Do let us know if you need further assistance.

    Yes, I know that i can put the Score on the standard Thank You page.
    What I can't do on the standard Thank you page is show all the questions
    with their answers marked as correct or uncorrect. This is VITAL
    because the whole point of this quiz is to show the quiz taker how much
    they don't know. If they don't get the results of their WRONG answers
    associated with the questions they got wrong, it is a wasted lead
    magnet. It does no good to indicate you have this number of answers
    correct and this number incorrect if it is not related to the actual
    questions they got wrong.
    If you will take my quiz https://www.jotform.com//?formID=60307212748148
    you will see the
    second page that comes up is a custom page created by somebody who was
    trying to help me (so many, I don't know who it is). This page comes up
    because on the Thank You page it is redirected to
    http://quizform.jotform.io/thankyou.php. If I could access that I could
    add the Score Key and I'd be done and able to get on with making a
    living. For whatever reason if I just open the redirect URL in my
    browser I get an error message so I don't know how it is that it is
    associated with this jotform. I know someone knows how to do this
    because there it is. I just need to add the score key to it. Maybe you
    could look back at all the messages associated with this problem and
    find the person who created the php.
    Thanks for your help.

    Hello Jennifer,

    I have looked at your form '15 Point Sales & Marketing Blind-Spot Checklist' it seems to redirect to the Thank You page you mentioned but without the error. I was able to fill the form and view the result with their associated key.

     

    Maybe the error was just temporary. 

    If this is not the problem you were referring to please let us know we will be happy help you get this done.

    Please also consider that at JofForm we really care about issues our users are having and do our best to provide good assistance.

    I sure wish I could talk in person to someone. I consider myself a
    competent writer who can clearly state a problem, but I am not getting
    through on this one.
    1. Yes, upon clicking the submit button the jotform goes to the right
    thankyou page (which is a custom page created by someone else I don't
    know who, so many people have been involved in this issue for DAYS.)
    2. I need to add text to that page: the Scoring Key so the quiz taker
    knows what their answers mean. But If I try to access the php file so I
    can add the text by entering the URL into my browser
    http://quizform.jotform.io/thankyou.php I get this error message:
    *Fatal error*: Uncaught exception 'JotFormException' with message
    'Requested URL (/v1/form/) is not available!' in
    /home/io4quizf/public_html/php/JotForm.php:118 Stack trace: #0

    QuizForm->__construct(Array, 'thankyou', false) #5 {main} thrown in
    */home/io4quizf/public_html/php/JotForm.php* on line *118
    *
    3. to be clear that custom thank you page is a redirected thankyou page
    in which this URL is entered http://quizform.jotform.io/thankyou.php
    When the quiz taker clicks the Submit button the thank you page comes
    up. That is NOT the problem. The problem is I don't know how to access
    that file so I can add text to it so the score has meaning to the user.
    *
    * 4. I think the problem is I am not communicating with a single, unique
    support person who can stay familiar with what the issue is because I
    keep restating it and getting back simplistic answers that don't address
    my problem. So frustrated.
    I appreciate your message that at JofForm you really care about issues
    your users are having and do your best to provide good assistance.

    Hi Jennifer

    Apologies if I couldn't help you on the Quiz App - I haven't used this app and don't know how to  use it. 

    Here's the updated questionnaire I did based on your specifications.

    Here are my replies to your questions dated February 20:

    1. I want the 2nd page of the quiz that has the test results to also have the Scoring Key. As it is now it just shows the questions and whether their answers are right or wrong. How do I add the Scoring Key to the results page (without it also being at the end of the 1st page)?

    > If you mean by scoring key = score interpretation on the quiz result page - done. 
    (see attached screenshot below. all form elements will be included in the autoresponder and email notification.)

    2. I want the email they get to be a copy of the 2nd page so they have a record of the questions with their score and scoring key.

    > Configured email autoresponder - done.
    * make sure that the email settings are correct. 

    3. How do I also get that same email sent to me?

    > Configured email notification - done.
    * make sure that the email settings are correct. 
    * and enter your own email address.

    4. Is it also possible to have the Thank You page come up when they leave the results page? (I didn't see how to do that)

    > Configured Thank you page - done. 
    (this is just a skeleton, plain text version. you can do fonts and layouts later.)

    Hope this helps.

    Hello Jennifer.

    1. Please note that the Thank You page you are referring to was not created by anyone in the support team. That thank you page is automatically created when you use the Quiz Form app. That app is where you set the correct answers in your form.

    2. When you are using the quiz form app, you do not need to go to the Thank You page. This is why you are getting the error messagge. To edit the result of your quiz form, you will need to go to the quiz form app by following this link: http://quizform.jotform.io/ 

    3. To get to the Thank You page of your quiz form, please follow this link: http://quizform.jotform.io/ 

    Then you can simply follow the guide below to edit your quiz form Thank You page.

    4. We do apologize for the inconvenience. You can check out this cloned form so you can see the quiz form in action: https://form.jotform.com/60528245947968 

    In that form you will see that when the user submits the form, they will be directed to a Thank You page where I have added the Scoring Key. 

     

     

    I hope this clears up some of the issues. Please let us know if you need further assistance.
