    Adding weighted questions with percentages

    Asked by foodorders on March 13, 2012 at 03:45 PM

    I am creating a technical team evaluation form.

    I have a set of questions that have different weightings depending on the type of question.

    What form tool(s)will acoomodate this?

    For example, one question may have a weighting of +10 meaning that person passed it, or a -10 where they failed.  Also, another could be +5 max meaning they passed, and a -5 where they didn't.


    In the end, If someone scored a + ranking for all of them, they would get an overall marking of 100%, a - score would remove a % from the overall.

    I'll be submitted the data into a SQL database, where I will need to export or run reports from as well (working on that but if you have suggestions, open to this area as well)

    Please let me know if there is an easier way or a form tool that will accomplish this.

    We dont support much of these features  but our developers are working on it and will ready soonest. Kindly keep in touch on this mail thread for updates.

    In JotForm currently you can use Grading tool methods for calculation

    The Grading tool can only add numbers entered in textbox "subfields"

    Thanks and lets us know if you were assisted.

    Hello !

    I also would suggest you to use a conditional logic form , so once the form is submitted, it redirects to another URL showing the results (it might be a javascript page or php page) 


    For detailed information here you have the guide

    Great, thank you both for this information.  I will try the conditional formatting now and also wait to see what will be developed.
