Using arrayformula with countif on a google form
I created a form that populates a spreadsheet with multiple choice answers for an assessment. The assessment answers range from A. None, to E: Very High.
The assessment requires a number be given to every answer A. None =1, B. Low =2, C. Moderate=3, etc....  and a total needs to be calculated.
When I plug in =(COUNTIF(F2:M2,"A. None")+COUNTIF(F2:M2,"B. Low")*2+countif(F2:M2,"C. Moderate")*3+Countif(F2:M2,"D. High")*4+COUNTIF(F2:M2,"E. Very High")*5)
it calculates the answer that I want for the first row.
How do I use arrayformula to automatically calculate the totals for new form entries?
Here is a copy of the spreadsheet (the original has some client sensitive information in it.)

What I need is for column N to automatically calculate the total as new form entries are entered.
I was trying to use arrayformula, but I guess I don't really know what I'm doing.
I also added a key at the bottom.
