Use the scoring sheet at the back of the OPERAT handbook to manually calculate the subscale scores for Natural Elements; Incivilities and Nuisance; Navigation and Mobility and Territorial Functioning and a final OPERAT score for a postcode. If you are scoring by hand (manually), then work your way across the sheet following the instructions for each item: assign a value to the observation that you made, perform any calculations that the item may require, code if necessary, and multiply the score by the weighting value.
