Totalling scores in a Survey


I have created a survey in Articulate 360 and used variables to calculate a score at the end.  All is working fine, unless someone chooses one answer then changes their mind for that question and chooses another answer.  The score from the first choice then adds to the score along with the second choice, so when the total is calculated at the end of the survey, it is incorrect.

Is there any way to deal with this so that the incorrect score is removed?

I have attached the file in the hope that someone has a simple workaround that I am missing.

Hi Kay

i can see what's happening. I would set the value when the user clicks the next button instead of when they click the radio button - that will remove the 'change my mind' issue and you won't have to add more triggers that subtract values.

So an example trigger would be

Set Resp1 = 1 when users clicks next button on condition that Radio button 1 = selected.

Set Resp1 = 2 when user clicks next button on condition that Radio button 2 = selected
