There are two ways in which respondents can answer a question, depending on the subject of the question:

  • They can type a response as text, a number, or a date or time. These questions typically require the respondent to provide subjective information in their answers, such as an opinion, an evaluation, or an estimate.

  • They can select an answer from a list of possible correct answers. The list is typically comprised of a blend of one or more facts or truths and one or more distracters.

You can provide a list of possible answers by creating in an ( > > ).

When you create a question for a questionnaire, you can then select the appropriate answer group.

An answer group can be used on more than one question on the same questionnaire, and on more than one questionnaire.

Points and correct answers

You can measure a respondent's score on a questionnaire by:

  • Assigning points that are earned when the answer is chosen by the respondent. In this case, the respondent will earn the number of points you assign to the question.

  • Designating that the answer is the correct answer to the question. In this case, the respondent earns one point every time they select the correct answer.

You can only calculate points for answers on questionnaires in which you have:

  • Selected the check box on the tab of the form, and

  • Created for the questionnaire.
