IFs in Expression not working correctly

I have a column at the end of 22 enum columns that is an IF and if it doesn’t equal one of the values then set the column to false. My problem is that when I have one of the correct ones selected, it will say True. Except when I have another column and select one that should set it to False, it will stay as True.

Expression:
IF(
IFS([1. The operator of the loader/backhoe is to inspect the machine] = at the beginning of each shift,True,
[2. All warning decals on the machine must be legible.] = True,True,
[3. Hydraulic fluid leaks are not a big concern on loader/backhoes.] = False,True,
[4. The operator’s manual needs to be located] = on the machine at all times.,True,
[5. The operator of the loader/backhoe is responsible for having read the operator’s manual.] = True,True,
[6. When the backhoe of the loader/backhoe is raised and extended, the machine’s stability] = Decreases,True,
[7. When the loader/backhoe is crossing a slope, the machine is more susceptible to a rollover] = True,True,
[8. The machine can be operated with some of the safety guards missing.] = True,True,
[9. The operator should check the work area for hazards prior to beginning operations.] = True,True,
[10. Seat belts must be worn] = At all times.,True,
[11. When climbing off of the loader/backhoe, the operator should:] = Face the machine and use 3 pt contact,True,
[12. Who is responsible for job site safety?] = Everyone,True,
[13. The danger area when the backhoe is in operation is considered everywhere the backhoe can reach.] = True,True,
[14. Before a worker enters the danger area of a backhoe, the worker should] = Establish eye contact with the operator.,True,
[15. When the loader/backhoe is working, workers should not stand by the bucket or stabilizer pads.] = True,True,
[16. Before excavating with a loader/backhoe, all underground hazards should be Located and a Trenching Permit should be filled out.] = True,True,
[17. When trenching in previously filled areas, cave-ins are] = More likely to occur.,True,
[18. Material from an excavation should be stored] = At least two feet from the edge of the excavation.,True,
[19. Where can the lifting capacity of the loader/backhoe be found:] = All the above.,True,
[20. When attaching a sling to the attachment points on the backhoe, a shackle should be used] = True,True,
[21. Slings and all lifting hardware needs to be inspected] = Prior to each use.,True,
[22. Proper barricades are required at all job sites involving excavations.] = True,True,),True,False)

I basically just want it to say True if all of those are selected and if one isn’t the right selection then be set as false. Or, since it is like a quiz, would there be a way to do a percentage of how many were right?

IFS() evaluates the conditions and finds the first one that matches. Once it finds a match, it stops looking.

IFS() is probably not the right expression. Instead, as it sounds like you want the entire result to be TRUE only if all of the conditions are TRUE. I would suggest AND():

AND(
  [1. The operator of the loader/backhoe is to inspect the machine] = at the beginning of each shift,
  [2. All warning decals on the machine must be legible.] = True,
  [3. Hydraulic fluid leaks are not a big concern on loader/backhoes.] = False,
  [4. The operator’s manual needs to be located] = on the machine at all times.,
  [5. The operator of the loader/backhoe is responsible for having read the operator’s manual.] = True,
  [6. When the backhoe of the loader/backhoe is raised and extended, the machine’s stability] = Decreases,
  [7. When the loader/backhoe is crossing a slope, the machine is more susceptible to a rollover] = True,
  [8. The machine can be operated with some of the safety guards missing.] = True,
  [9. The operator should check the work area for hazards prior to beginning operations.] = True,
  [10. Seat belts must be worn] = At all times.,
  [11. When climbing off of the loader/backhoe, the operator should:] = Face the machine and use 3 pt contact,
  [12. Who is responsible for job site safety?] = Everyone,
  [13. The danger area when the backhoe is in operation is considered everywhere the backhoe can reach.] = True,
  [14. Before a worker enters the danger area of a backhoe, the worker should] = Establish eye contact with the operator.,
  [15. When the loader/backhoe is working, workers should not stand by the bucket or stabilizer pads.] = True,
  [16. Before excavating with a loader/backhoe, all underground hazards should be Located and a Trenching Permit should be filled out.] = True,
  [17. When trenching in previously filled areas, cave-ins are] = More likely to occur.,
  [18. Material from an excavation should be stored] = At least two feet from the edge of the excavation.,
  [19. Where can the lifting capacity of the loader/backhoe be found:] = All the above.,
  [20. When attaching a sling to the attachment points on the backhoe, a shackle should be used] = True,
  [21. Slings and all lifting hardware needs to be inspected] = Prior to each use.,
  [22. Proper barricades are required at all job sites involving excavations.] = True,
)

Or, to get a count of correct answers:

SUM(
  LIST(
    IFS([1. The operator of the loader/backhoe is to inspect the machine] = at the beginning of each shift, 1),
    IFS([2. All warning decals on the machine must be legible.] = True, 1),
    IFS([3. Hydraulic fluid leaks are not a big concern on loader/backhoes.] = False, 1),
    IFS([4. The operator’s manual needs to be located] = on the machine at all times., 1),
    IFS([5. The operator of the loader/backhoe is responsible for having read the operator’s manual.] = True, 1),
    IFS([6. When the backhoe of the loader/backhoe is raised and extended, the machine’s stability] = Decreases, 1),
    IFS([7. When the loader/backhoe is crossing a slope, the machine is more susceptible to a rollover] = True, 1),
    IFS([8. The machine can be operated with some of the safety guards missing.] = True, 1),
    IFS([9. The operator should check the work area for hazards prior to beginning operations.] = True, 1),
    IFS([10. Seat belts must be worn] = At all times., 1),
    IFS([11. When climbing off of the loader/backhoe, the operator should:] = Face the machine and use 3 pt contact, 1),
    IFS([12. Who is responsible for job site safety?] = Everyone, 1),
    IFS([13. The danger area when the backhoe is in operation is considered everywhere the backhoe can reach.] = True, 1),
    IFS([14. Before a worker enters the danger area of a backhoe, the worker should] = Establish eye contact with the operator., 1),

    IFS([18. Material from an excavation should be stored] = At least two feet from the edge of the excavation., 1),
    IFS([19. Where can the lifting capacity of the loader/backhoe be found:] = All the above., 1),
    IFS([20. When attaching a sling to the attachment points on the backhoe, a shackle should be used] = True, 1),
    IFS([21. Slings and all lifting hardware needs to be inspected] = Prior to each use., 1),
