  2. Complete the form ratings, leave a sections with items unrated or there are no items on the section.
  3. Save or route the form. The calculated form rating will still include the unrated sections or sections with no items.

Remove the element : <meta-form-rating-calc><![CDATA[sum]]></meta-form-rating-calc> from the meta section of the performance template xml.

You may also see <meta-form-rating-calc><![CDATA[avg]]></meta-form-rating-calc> configured in the from.
