Help with data structure for Power App form changes

A year ago I designed my 1st Power App from a SP list to eliminate exhausting and tedious use of Excel files to create an inspection form. My current data structure includes choice columns with additional calculated columns to assign a point value up to 100 points.


How would I be able to restructure my data to become more dynamic as it relates to inspection form changes? If I currently have 10 questions equal to 100 points, but later we may revise the inspection form to 15 questions equal to the same 100 points. It feels like I would need two different SP lists and as a result two different galleries, otherwise the gallery would not be able to aggregate all previous inspections along with current ones. The wording on the question or the point value may also change from time to time, and I'd want the ability to catalogue the inspection rating with the given questions at the time when reviewing historical items.


I'm really unsure how best to approach this request. Please let me know if my explanation is clear.

I would personally aff the new questions to same splist and in my powerapp where I displayed scores I would just set a if on the score control.that said if id < X then calculate using columns 1-10, else use 1-15
