It is possible to choose how you want to deliver the question. You can deliver the question in the following styles:
- Scored provides the ability to add specific scoring and feedback values to the question choices.
- Unscored provides a simple question layout for survey based assessments with no access to setting scores or adding feedback.
To create or edit the wording for your question, click where it says "Click here to change the question wording" and enter the question wording. You can use the text formatting toolbar to present the question wording in any way you wish. Refer to Using the text formatting toolbar for more information on how to do this.
The question choices for a Yes/No question are fixed. They can only appear as Yes/No or their equivalent translation.
To score a question choice, enter the desired score for the choice in the text box provided. Alternatively, you can use the up and down arrows next to the text box to increase/decrease the score already displayed.
It is possible to change the order that the Yes/No choices are displayed. To arrange the Yes/No choices in a particular order, select a choice and drag it to the desired location.
You can also specify whether the question choices are listed vertically or horizontally. To do so, select either Display Vertically or Display Horizontally from the Properties options.
You can choose to present feedback to participants based on the choice they select, although you do not have to do so. For example, you may wish to provide more details to the participant on why a particular choice is correct or incorrect. ("Sorry, Mount Rushmore is in South Dakota")
To present feedback to choices:
- Click the Show Feedback button.
- Under each choice, click where it says "Enter new feedback here" and enter the feedback you require.
Question descriptions enable you to provide information about the question being created.
To add a description to a question, click Edit Question Description, enter the description (200 characters maximum), and click OK.
If no question description is specified, the question wording will be used as the question description.
Adding a comment box to a question enables participants to provide a response to the question. This is particularly useful when creating surveys.
To add a comment box to a question, simply click Add Comment Box. The comment box will be added to the bottom of the question.
Once a comment box has been added, you can edit the text used to introduce the comment box. By default, this is: "Add your comment:"
In cases where a participant tries to continue an assessment without completing a question, an additional outcome can be set or a "no answer" outcome.
To add an additional outcome:
- Click Additional Outcome. The Additional Outcome screen will open.
- Enter feedback corresponding to the "no answer" outcome for the question
- Click Save.
