Scoring system

This will likely be custom support needing a paid ticket (which isn't a problem), but its got to start somewhere.

I'm looking to add a scoring system to an existing database.

There is currently a table 'lodges', and the objective is to have a series of questions where voters can give a score out of 10 for a lodge for each question.

So an example question might be:


This inserts a record in a table 'scores' with the field:

LodgeID (to link back to the lodges table) - hidden field pulling through the LodgeID from the query on the page.
Question which is currently just a number (maybe worth having a third table 'questions' - also a hidden field.
Score ID - unique PK for the 'scores' table.
Score - the score based on the selection made.

So for example, that gives a table with records like:

ScoreID, LodgeID, Question, Score
1, 288, 1, 10
1, 288, 1, 8
1, 288, 1, 6
1, 288, 1, 4
1, 288, 1, 2

So far so good - the part I would need help with is to calculate and store:

1. The number of votes cast for any question for any lodge.
2. The average score received for that question.

So with the sample data above LodgeID 288 has had 5 votes cast for question 1, with an average score of 6.

I hope that makes sense - it may be that the table fields / structure is all wrong, or at least needs additional fields somewhere to store the calculated fields, but I wanted to at least try to make a start so it might make some sense.

If you could steer me in the right direction, or even help out with some paid support that would be appreciated as ever.

Use SQL to calculate the average and count the answers:

SELECT COUNT(ScoreID) as scoreCount, AVG(Score) as AverageScore FROM scores WHERE LodgeID = 288 AND Question = 1
