CDISC has provided controlled terminology for several Questionnaires, and
these are 'Non Extensible'. But some Questionnares like ESS, SGRQ-C, BDI etc
need Total scores to be calculated (derived), either for the whole test or for
sub groups, but the TEST/TESTCD for this is not provided in the controlled
terminology and respective Questionnaire supplements.
How are these 'Total Scores' to be recorded if the controlled terminology is
ESS has 8 questions, for which the CDISC has provided controlled terminology, and has given examples in the ESS Questionnaire supplement, but I need to collect/derive the Total score as well. Since the code list is not extensible, how do I do this?
How to record the sums for Symptoms component, Activity component, Impacts component and Total score for SGRQ-C.

Since this is not a SAS question perse, I think you will have a higher chance to get an answer when asking in a CDISC forum.
I would suggest the "SDTM - Experts" discussion group on LinkedIn: CDISC - SDTM Experts | LinkedIn
CDISC also has a discussion forum, unfortunately with a lot of spam, and much less traffic: Public Discussion Forum
