Part of the code are below. I need to continue it so that when you click the check results the score is displayed and the percentage results also.

<script LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

 
 function checkresults()
 {
 if (document.form1.clause1.value=="quickly")
       {
       return true;
       }
 if (document.form1.street.value=="nothing")
       {
       return true;
       }
 if (document.form1.street.value=="assist")
       {
       return true;
       }
 if (document.form1.street.value=="coaching")
       {
       return true;
       }
 if (document.form1.street.value=="skill")
       {
       return true;
       }
       return false;
 }

function maskKeyPress(objEvent)
      {
        var iKeyCode;        
        iKeyCode = objEvent.keyCode;                  
        if(iKeyCode>=97 && iKeyCode<=122) return true;
        return false;
      }

Sorry, you want to change

  if (bad>0) {
    alert('Good: '+good+'\nErrors:'+ bad)
    return false
  }
}

to

  alert('Good: '+good+'\nErrors:'+ bad)
  return bad==0
}


and possibly

<form...
<input TYPE="button" value="Check Results" onClick="validateresults(this.form)">
to

<form... onSubmit="return validateresults(this)
<input TYPE="button" value="Check Results" onClick="validateresults(this.form)">
<input TYPE="submit" value="Send Results">

Well thank you very much .I have added the percentage and with the mask event there is no need to put the toLowerCase() and any other character except lowercase letters that  can be entered
Here is the corrected code.

function validateresults(theForm) {
  good=0;
  bad=0;
  for (i=0;i<answers.length;i++) {
    answer = theForm.elements["clause"+(i+1)].value;
    if (answer != "") {
      if (answer == answers[i]) good ++
      else bad++
    }
  }
  alert('No. of Good answers out of 5 = '+good+'\nYour Percentage= '+((good/5)*100)+'  %')
  return bad==0
}



function maskKeyPress(objEvent)  {

  var iKeyCode;      
  iKeyCode = objEvent.keyCode;  
             
  if(iKeyCode>=97 && iKeyCode<=122) return true;
  return false;
