Scoring answers in a questionnaire

Calculate a cumulative score based on your questionnaire results, to generate metrics and trends for a specific focus group. For example, in a questionnaire about satisfaction with customer service, you can assign high scores to better ratings and low scores to poorer ratings to quickly calculate the general satisfaction level of customers.

Only standard Pega Platform applications support scoring answers. You cannot configure scoring values in applications based on Cosmos React.

You can configure scoring only for questions that you add to a question page in a questionnaire. Individual questions that you ask by using the Question shape in a case life cycle do not support scores.
