Adding Checked boxes

Hi, I’m a University lecturer and I am adapting a pre-existing marking template for a student assignment that has a number of correct statements associated with checked boxes (Check Box1, Check Box2, Check Box3, Check Box4, Check Box5 & Check Box6). So for example, if a student has a correct statement in their assignment then one mark is awarded. What I’m hoping to do is create a text field (Question_1_Sum) that counts the number of checked boxes that have been ticked.

I’m sure it sounds easy but unfortunately I’m not a programmer. Would someone be able to assist?  Thanks

All you need to do is set the export value of each box as 1, and then you'll be able to use the built-in Sum function to add them all up.

There's no need for any code.
