I want to collect all the user answers ( checked radios and checkboxes) and see if the user has selected the correct answer. If so, score++

The code isn’t doing what I would like it to. I’m sure something is missing but don’t know what. When I click the “check score” button I would like it to show the score but for now, it only shows "You scored: 0/10. My displayScore() function doesn’t work. Could anyone tell me what I’m missing here? Observe that there is two possible correct answers for the questions with checkboxes.

      for (const option in obj.options) {
        /* If it has an object that has an array as a value it renders the inputs as checkboxes */

Try logging selected, make sure it’s what you intend. I have a feeling it isn’t.

I also tried the below and it doesn’t log what I want it to log to the console. So I was thinking that, when I click a radiobutton or checkbox, the console should output that value. Or am I totally wrong :sweat_smile: ?

let selected = e.target.checked;

Your css selector is getting the checked item… But how can you get the value of a given form element?

What I’m trying to achieve is saving the inputs that the user selects in an array and if the users selections is >= 2 ( becasue the checkbox questions have two possible correct answers) and save that to an array too. Then finally also push that to the array : answerContainer. This is what’s not working for me - the score++ is not being computed. Can’t still figure it out :confused:

Here’s a hint: you aren’t actually setting a value attribute on any of your inputs, but if you had, you might be able to check if the selected.value is the same as the correct answer.

The score isn’t working because this particular check, comparing the correct answer to the user answer, is doing something else.
