Description

Multiple Choice

The participant selects one response option from those available (two or more).

Multiple Response

The participant selects one or more response options, from those available (two or more). Using right/wrong scoring, each correct response is scored separately and the participant is awarded the overall score for the choices selected. Using score per choice scoring, the correct score is only awarded if the selected choices match those required for the correct answer.

True/False

The participant selects if they believe the question to be true or false.

Yes/No

The participant selects if they believe the answer to the question is either yes or no.

Text Match

To answer a question, the participant enters text in a text entry field.

Gives the participant the opportunity to provide an essay type answer to a question.

Explanation

Pull-down

To answer a question, the participants selects the appropriate option from a pull-down list for each choice.

Likert

A Likert question includes 'survey-type' response options in a 'I agree / I am neutral / I disagree' format (there can be between 3 and 10 response options). Participants select a response according to whether they agree or disagree with a statement. These questions are typically used in questionnaires.

Numeric

In a Numeric question, the participant answers by typing in either a whole number or a real number. Answers can be defined within a specified range, with scores being assigned for accuracy.

Matching

A Matching question presents two series of statements/words, and the participant must match items from one list to items within the other list. In other words, Matching question offers the participant a drop-down list of possible responses to a question.

Hotspot

In a Hotspot question, participants place a single marker on an image to indicate their answer.

Drag and Drop

Drag and Drop questions are similar to Hotspot questions but with up to 10 "hot" areas on an image that can be identified by participants. Participants place markers on an image to indicate their answers.

Job Task Analysis

In a Job Task Analysis question, the participant ranks items on a Likert scale for multiple dimensions. When you create a Job Task Analysis question, four dimensions pre-populated with dimension choices are automatically added to the question.

Knowledge Matrix
