Is there a way for me to automatically "grade" sections for an inspection form?

    Hi there,

     

    I am hoping to create a survey form for facilities inspections for schools. Each section of the inspection (e.g. Main Office, Cafeteria, Safety) would need to have a weight between 1-5 points. 

     

    Is that possible?

    Thank you,

    Kaleigh

    You can try the following methods:

    1. Use a radio button if it's for single selection or checkbox if it's for multiple selections.

    2. Add a calculation value for the field options (https://www.jotform.com/help/301-How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value). Let say, 1 for each option or zero for others.

    3. Calculate the total of all the fields (https://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-perform-calculation-in-the-form). You can then calculate the percentage out from the total, the result is your grade.

    You may use the Survey Fields: 

    For example, the "Star Rating" field will allow you to have this on your form: 

    Now, you may split your form in different sections, and adding a page break so your users can also fill the first section and then go to the next one, follow the process until the entire form is completed. 

    Here is a guide that will help you to create a multiple pages form: How-to-Create-Multi-Page-Forms

    Following this, you will have your form separated in sections.

    Hope this helps.
