hello, more experienced people than I.


I have drop down list of several options:


UNACCEPTABLE: Not prepared and does not manage time well.
NOVICE: Time-management and organizational skills can be improved.
COMPETENT: Demonstrates good time management and organizational skills .

PROFICIENT: Excellent time management and organizational skills throughout  clinical interactions, consistently focused on task at hand and prepared with all necessary tools and materials.


and I would like to be able to create a field that will automatically calculate a score, based on which of the above options were selected:

NOVICE: =.60



Any thoughts or suggestions on how I might be able to code this?


thanks in advance!
