These scores are calculated by the following formulas: 

Row Total = Sum of Row Scores

Row Average  = Sum of Row Scores / Number of Column Questions

Column Total = Sum of Column Scores

Column Average = Sum of Column Scores / Number of Row Questions

For example, the scores for this question are calculated:

Row Total for “Appearance”= 3.5 + 4 + 4 = 11.5

Row Average for “Appearance” = 11.5 / 3 = 3.83

Column Total for “Bing” = 3.5 + 4.5 = 8

Column Average for “Bing” = 8 / 2 = 4

Note: The answering content of each option can be viewed in the Responses. The Default Report only displays the average score.
