    How to create a invisible point system?

    Asked by jwang on March 05, 2012 at 09:38 PM

    I need to have an invisble point system where people who want to apply to a job fill out a form, and considering what they choose on multiple-choice question, they each get a rating. That way, I can find the top 10% or so and read their resumes and make the decision. How do you do that?

    Unfortunately, this is not possible within the current features of JotForm.  What you can do is create your own quiz script where it will collect the score and then have it insert the score result to the field in your form on your website via URL parameters.

    You can try searching for some scripts available online that can generate the quiz script for you.  Here are some:

    Can't you use the conditions to say that if Question1 equals Choice1 then add 1 to some hidden box element or something?

    jwang, maybe you want to try using the Grading tool in Survey tools.
    It can be use as a point system fill up form. Although some manual manipulation on the source script is needed when you embed it to hide the total points base on the rating answers(that is, if you want to hide the total). 
    If you look at the Grading tool, you can make the items as the questions, the applicant will rate each item and you will have a total for each sets.

    I will make a sample so you can see for yourself. Worth a try.

    Please wait.

    Jwang, you may want to try like this.
    For each sets you get points, then, you just use your own matrix for the ranking. 


    The JotForm form is here. 


    With JotForms, this can be easily build to a more complex sets of Items.
