So I have built the likert form and a script to process a the score. Only problem is that I need help finishing it all and I need to have the score be displayed on the same as the form/likert form they just completed. Here is and example of the code I am using: (shorted for readability)

<div class="test">
<form action="" method="POST" id="form1">
1. Rate your level of visibility into information you need to proactively
and profitably run your business:</br>
<span class="answers">
<input type="radio" name="q1" value="1"/>
Zero visibility<br/>
<input type="radio" name="q1" value="2"/>
20 percent<br/>
<input type="radio" name="q1" value="3"/>
40 percent<br/>
<input type="radio" name="q1" value="4"/>
60 percent<br/>
<input type="radio" name="q1" value="5"/>
80 percent<br/>
<input type="radio" name="q1" value="6"/>
100 percent <br/>

2. To stay on top of and improve your business, you (check all that apply):<br/>
<span class="answers">
<input type="radio" name="q2" value="1"/>
Check a daily dashboard that shows how you perform against key performance indicators<br/>
<input type="radio" name="q2" value="1"/>
Are automatically notified by your software system (via test or email) when certain conditions, such as a jobís profit threshold, arenít met<br/>
<input type="radio" name="q2" value="1"/>
Analyze your performance across projects and against industry benchmarks<br/>
<input type="radio" name="q2" value="1"/>
Spot trends and forecast costs and performance.<br/>
<input type="radio" name="q2" value="1"/>
Access key information while on the road using mobile devices <br/>

<input type='button' value='score' onclick="score()"/>

<script type="text/javascript">
function el(tid) {return document.getElementById(tid);}
function score(){
var ems = el("form1").elements;
var buff=[], count=0, total=0;
for(var i=0, mx=ems.length;i<mx;i++){
if(ems[i].checked){ total+=Number(ems[i].value); count++; }
alert("total: "+total+" ; Avg: "+ (total/count).toFixed(1) );

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you post any code please put it in between
tags. It makes scanning your posts much easier. You can do this by clicking the small ‘#’ icon above the reply field.

Sorry, didn't see that till after I had already clicked submit.

Also, I would like to add if anyone could also help me have the "alert" display the answer as a percentage. This percentage shows them how visible their business is.
