# Custom assessment values for Multiple choice

Hello,
I try to understand how assessment values can be calculated. I've created a question with multiple choice with 6 subquestions. In the question advanced values, I can set assessment value. Each time a checkbox is ticked, this assessment value will be taken into account.
In my case, I want to give 5 points for the last 2 answers and no point for the other answers.

I thought I could set assessment values to something like that :
if(Q1_SQ005,5,0) && if(Q1_SQ006,5,0)
or
sum(if(Q1_SQ005,5,0),if(Q1_SQ006,5,0))

It does not work. I've tested with another formula but score is steal 0
if(1==1,5,0)

Does anybody know if this is possible to do ?

Hi,

Assesment can not be really used for multi question text.

But you can use Expression Manager (like you try if i look good).

Here, i think you can use more something like that:
`sum(!is_empty(Q1_SQ005.NAOK)*5,!is_empty(Q1_SQ006.NAOK)*5)`

Hi, I have similar need and I tried the above formula in an equation type question but it broke by span class errors ! I am using LimeSurvey 2.50 .

I also tried this formula which has no errors but it doesn't seem to be working and it stays blank after checking the answers !

cheers

Hi,

1st : it's always better to make one post with your problem, and not post on a 2 years old problem .....
2nd : maybe you don't have same subquestion and code : minimum : show the Question Survey logic file screenshot.

Thank you Denis,
I was trying to avoid duplicating posts since my need is addressed here but maybe yes I shouldn't do that in an old post.
It works great now! I re-did it and it is working fine.

I was using that.Q1_SQ001.NAOK instead of Q1_SQ005.NAOK !
I don't know what made me add the "that." days ago when I was experimenting with it !

All fine now but I have another problem summing scores from three different equation questions but I guess I should open a new post for that although it's probably something my newbie eyes are missing.

Many thanks
