Hi there, 

 

I just joined the Typeform community and I am trying to build a matrix-type survey. I was wondering if it is possible to add weight or score to each column of the matrix question. It is very useful when analysing large quantity of data.

Hi @manisha. Welcome to our Community! :hugging:

 

I totally agree this would be useful! However, the scores (and the logic jumps) cannot be added to the Matrix Question at the moment. The team will keep improving the New Builder and the Matrix Question over the next months and I hope this is one of the things we'll include.

 

Also, I'd suggest you subscribe to the product update page here so you'll be notified about new releases too. :) 

Thank you!

@manisha - from a user here 

with the matrix questions, i also have the same interest. what i have tried to test “in the background” is the conversion of a series of question groups, each with a handful of questions, that would work better (in my opinion) in a matrix style question. 

However, in my test I am taking the Matrix style question out put into a Google Sheet, where i can update the weighting and come up with the figures i need for analysis. I will also use this to be able to generate the reports i need to be sent to the survey user (using Document Studio add-in in Google Sheets)

This works for me in terms of the weighting of values and analysis of the matrix responses, but there are some of the features, that @Mariana mentioned, that are being worked on that will improve the Matrix question type in future updates. 

hope this helps a little..

Any progress update? Scoring a matrix would be extremely helpful.

Thanks for sharing your workaround for the matrix scoring issue, though I'm having a slight problem following your steps. If you have a moment could you help me to clarify the following?

  1. Did you use the matrix grid in TypeForm or did you substitute it with a "group" of questions?
  2. If you did use the matrix in TypeForm, how did you formulate values associated with those questions and how did you input them into your Google sheet?
  3. Did you create a matrix in Google sheets and plug in the values from a non-matrix question group from TypeForm?

I really appreciate your contribution to this subject. I've been trying to figure this one out for a while now.
