    How to add score to selections

    Asked by NgeeAnnPolytechnic on October 05, 2016 at 08:03 AM

    Dear Sir

    I have created the UI of the RIASEC form.

    How do I add scores to each of the letters RIASEC - depending on the answer?

    I would then need to sum up the scores for all letters and display the top 3 dominant ones to user.

    Thanks for your help..

    You can add a calculation value for the field option(s) then calculate it using our calculation widget.

    Here are the guides that would help you do it in the form:

    hi there,

    I am still unclear.

    Can I seek your help to edit directly on my form for me?


    What I have do so far,

    1. I have set Calculation Value under SURVEYING to 1 (is user turns on the switcher button - it counts as 1 pt) - did i get that right?

    2. I have added a Calculate Form widget and for computation of the letter R under RIASEC - if user picks YES for questions 1, 7, 14, 22, 30, 32 and 37 - it adds 1 to the score.

    Is that correct? It looks weird at bottom of form.  

    i want the form to calculate the top 3 dominant letters after user submits form and displays the top 3 letters to him and then channels to a specific statement (text) based on the dominant letters.

    Is that possible? how? 

    R - YES to qns 1, 7, 14, 22, 30, 32, and 37

    I  - YES to qns 2, 11, 18, 21, 26, 33 and 39

    A - YES to qns 3, 8, 17, 23, 27, 31 and 41

    S - YES to qns 4, 12, 13, 20, 28, 34, and 40

    E  - YES to qns 5, 10, 16, 19, 29, 36 and 42

    C - YES to qns 6, 9, 15, 24, 25, 35 and 38

    1. Correct.

    2. Do you want to only score 1 when all fields are equal to Yes? Not, 7? 

    Here's a cloned version of your form: https://form.jotform.com/62795082374969.

    RIASEC are calculated based on the fields that you've mentioned. If all fields in each letter are filled, would total to 7.

    Top 1, 2 and 3 are calculated using NTH function. This is a screenshot of the Top 1 calculation:


    The number 1 in the equation means to get the highest value. Top 2 has 2 in it and likewise, Top 3 has 3 in the calculation.

    You can clone the form back to your account, here's how: https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    Thank you very much!

    1. Is there a way to hide / make invisible the individual RIASEC scores (fields below)?

    So user just sees the top 3 dominant letters?

    2. Is there a way to create & channel user to a specific statement / info based on the top 3 dominant letters?  e.g. if R is one of the dominant letters, i will present the list of course possibilities to user.
