How do I assign points to options (for questions)? How do I add up all the points?

May 01, 2020

Hi Everyone! I'd like to build an assessment/survey with 10 questions. Each question would have 5 options (never, almost never, sometimes, fairly often, often). And, each option would be assigned a point (a.=1, b.=2, c. = 3, ...) At the end of the test, I want to add up all the points. Depending on the total points, users would get different feedback (e.g., 0-5 points show a green slide, 6-15 points show a red slide, 16-25 points show a yellow slide...) How do I start? Can I use regular test questions or am I building custom questions? I haven't used number variables but this might be the time? Let me know! Thanks.

  1. You need to use variables. If you don't know how, let us know and we can point you to some training webinars we've done.
  2. Assign a value to a variable when a decision is made. For example, you could have one total points variable and just keep adding to it.
  3. At the end have triggers that say, go to X if the value is between these values, got to y if the value is between these values, etc
