    Thank you for contacting us.

    You may try searching for 'calculation', 'conditional' key words on our support forum.

    Would you basically need to calculate the modality scores (visual, auditory, kinesthetic) and based on these scores show/email custom messages?

    Here are links to our guides which may be related to the topic:

    1. How to Perform Calculation in the Form

    2. How to Assign Calculation Value

    3. Smart Forms Using Conditional Logic

    To illustrate the calculations, here is a quick example:

    https://form.jotform.com/61026539001949

    With conditional logic on form you can dynamically show  form 'thank you' messages, send different email templates, show/hide the fields, compare values and so on.

    If you have any follow up questions, please let us know.
