## Scoring multiple choice questions 2 years 11 months ago #71089

 misterdot OFFLINE Junior Lime Posts: 35 Thank you received: 1 Karma: 0 I think I'm past my limit for forum questions, but I've hit a wall once again. I have a series of multiple choice questions that I'd like to score via hidden questions. The scoring logic it slightly different for each question, but here are some examples: Question 1: choice A choice B choice C If one choice is checked, score is 3, if two are checked, score is 4, if three checked, score is 5. Question 2: choice A choice B .... choice K If one is checked, score is 2, if more than one, score is 3. I see having a page of hidden questions that will score each question on the previous page. This survey can be group-by-group or all in one (makes no difference). If I can figure out how to do it for one question, I can do the other others, but so far I haven't been able to cobble together a script from code snippets in the forums or elsewhere.

 TMSWhite OFFLINE LimeSurvey Team Posts: 759 Thank you received: 82 Karma: 36 misterdot- Here's how you would do this in 1.92 RC1 (which should be released this week). Say your questions 1 and 2 are named Q1 and Q2, and the answer code values are named A, B, C. Create four new questions: Sum1, Score1, Sum2, Score2, all of type Equation. The text for each of them is as follows: Sum1:`{sum(Q1_A, Q1_B, Q1_C)}` Score1:`{if(Sum1==1, 3, if(Sum1==2, 4, if(Sum1==3, 5, 0)))}` Sum2:`{sum{Q2_A, Q2_B, Q3_C)}` Score2:`{if(Sum2==1, 2, if(Sum2>1, 3, 0))}` This will work in any survey mode (question, group, or all-in-one). /Tom If you depend upon LimeSurvey or the support team, please give generously to our 2012 fundraiser.

 tpartner OFFLINE LimeSurvey Team Posts: 4372 Thank you received: 830 Karma: 381 While 1.92 RC1 (thanks to TMSWhite's Expression Manager) will have some wonderful new capabilities, it should be noted that this will be a release candidate and is not recommended for production surveys. For the stable 1.91 version, you can do the following: In each case, add a short-text question to the same page as the multiple-options question. We'll hide this question and load it with the score. For the first case, add the following script to the source of the short-text. Replace "QQ" with the multiple-options question ID and "HH" with the short-textquestion ID. `````` For the second case, add the following script to the source of the short-text. Replace "QQ" with the multiple-options question ID and "HH" with the short-textquestion ID. `````` Cheers, Tony Partner Solutions, code and workarounds presented in these forums are given without any warranty, implied or otherwise.

 misterdot OFFLINE Junior Lime Posts: 35 Thank you received: 1 Karma: 0 Once again, tpartner, thanks so much -- works perfectly as usual. TMSWhite, EM looks really great and it will be a huge gain for non-programmers such as myself. I was hoping we'd get to use it for our current project, but I don't think it's going to make it in time for us to go into production. I appreciate the posts, though, because they'll be really useful in the future as a reference. Is 1.92 different from the planned 2.0, or are they now essentially the same?

 TMSWhite OFFLINE LimeSurvey Team Posts: 759 Thank you received: 82 Karma: 36 misterdot- The version of Expression Manager in 1.92 is significantly more powerful and well integrated into LS than the one in 2.0a, but we expect to upgrade the 2.0 branch to use that functionality over the next several months. I've updated the EM documentation to reflect what it can 1.92 can do. /Tom If you depend upon LimeSurvey or the support team, please give generously to our 2012 fundraiser.
