Can Jotform be used to create assessments with self scoring for different types of questions?

    I love jotform.  I want to set up assessments and would like to know if jotform can fill that need.  I would like the assessment to self score the results for different types of non-text answers; is that possible with jotform?  I didn't want to go to another application if I can do it all with Jotform.

    Thanks for the response.

    It is possible, but it would involve using a php script on a 'thankyou' page URL, and a fair bit of work.

    This is a php template I made for using JotForm as multiple choice 'quiz'

    -> http://pastebin.com/mcrv97Kg

    You would have to put that template onto your webserver, edit it to suit your form and enable sending of POST variables from your form to it:

    Even with that template, unfortunately, its not going to be as easy as most things are on JotForm.
