    Hi, JotForm!

    I'm interested in the ability to have statistical/mathematical information provided after someone fills out a survey. The example would be my users selecting 1-10 on a ranked scale, with the scale weighted so that 1=1 and 10=10. Once the form had been completed, I would need to be able to immediately be able to determine the average (addition of all weighted numbers selected divided by the total number of respondents) as well as the standard deviation. Is that something JotForm can do? I'm really hoping you can, as you offer a few other things, such as file uploads and Box integration, that would be very effective for my organization.


    Thank you!

    Thank you for contacting us.

    We support form calculations, but unfortunately, the form does not have access to the data submitted by other respondents to use it in calculations for particular user.

    1. How to Perform Calculation in the Form

    2. How to Assign Calculation Value  

    In theory, with Thank You page HTTP post data submission and JotForm API (or some report as a data source) you can calculate and show your numbers using some custom programming solution.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.
