Formula for Scoring a Project (with Weights)

Hello!

I am looking to give my projects a score, based on 8 different options. In one column I have a multi-select to pick from those 8 criteria and then I want to have a column to give a numerical score for the project based on how many of the 8 criteria are selected. One problem is I want to make two of the criteria worth 3 points while are others are 1. I am having trouble with the weighting piece of it. Anyone have experience with this?

Thanks for the guidance! I was actually able to solve it with a coworker's advice of using the following...

=SUM(COUNTM([Scoring Criteria]@row) + IF(CONTAINS("aligns to OKR", [Scoring Criteria]@row), 2, 0) + IF(CONTAINS("student success", [Scoring Criteria]@row), 2, 0))

Have a great day!

You'll want to check out the HAS() function. Try something like...

= if(has(DROPDOWN@row,"Criteria 1"),1,0) + if(has(DROPDOWN@row,"Criteria 2"),1,0) + ..... + if(has(DROPDOWN@row,"Criteria 8"),1,0)

Swap out the bolded "1" for whatever weight each needs.
