Enter your name or your business name, whichever you want to display in the "Assessment Provided By..." message.
Enter your AssessmentGeneratorTM user name, or leave it blank if you are trying out a free demo.
Your email address:
Enter the e-mail address where you would like to receive users' results, after they complete the assessment. Alternatively, you may enter your autoresponder's e-mail address - this will allow you to automatically follow up with your assessment users, and add them to your mailing list at the same time. If you want to do both - receive your users' results and use an autoresponder to follow up with them - enter 2 e-mails: one is your direct e-mail, the other is your autoresponder e-mail. Separate the two e-mails by a comma, like this: email@example.com,firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your web site address:
Enter your web site address (URL) - it will be included in the confirmation e-mail sent to every assessment taker. It's be to start the URL with "http://". For example, http://www.accpow.com.
Your business logo, banner or other image:
Enter an image URL, residing on your web site. It can be your logo, photo, header, banner, or any other image representing your business. The URL must start with the "http://" to work correctly! For example, http://www.accpow.com/aspowlogo.jpg
Enter the title for your assessment. For example, "How Healthy Are Your Eating Habits", or "Business Start-Up Readiness Check", or any other name to represent the assessment you will create.
There are 5 assessment types you can create using AssessmentGeneratorTM. Checkbox assessment is great for "Yes/No" questions. Scale 1-5 assessment is good for ranking how much a statement can be applied to the user. Question & Answer is excellent for when you expect narrative answers from the user. True or False and Multiple Choice types are appropriate when you want to create quizzes. You can view the samples to see which type is best for the assessment you want to design.
Number of questions:
Enter the maximum number of questions your assessment will have. It's OK if you eventually decide you don't need that many, and leave some question boxes blank.
Each question should be a "TRUE/FALSE" type of statement. For example,
Don't ask users for their contact information:
Check this box if you don't want to ask assessment takers for their name and e-mail. Users can still leave these questions unanswered, but checking this box will make sure that they're not even asked for their information.
Point worth of each question:
You can decide how many points each question is worth. The easiest way to do this is assign 1 point to each question. If some questions are more important than others, give it 2 points or more. For example:
Enter what the score means, and what you recommend for the user to do. You can fill all 4 boxes, or leave some blank. If you enter messages in the first 3 boxes only, the results will be calculated based on the 3-range scoring system. If only the first 2 boxes are filled, then the results will be calculated based on the 2-range scoring system. AssessmentGenerator will show a different message, depending on how the user scores.
To insert a link into a Scoring Key field, simply copy this code into the scoring key box, and customize it with your own information:
<a href=http://www.yoursiteaddress.com>Click here to visit my site</a>
If you want to link to to ACCPOW (Association of Coaching & Consulting Professionals on the Web) for example, then your link code would look like this:
<a href=http://www.accpow.com>Click here to visit ACCPOW</a>
If you want your prospects to download a PDF file upon completing the assessment, you can link to a PDF file located on your web site the same way. For example:
<a href=http://www.yoursiteaddress.com/file.pdf>Click to download a PDF file</a>
Enter the message you would like your users to receive in the e-mail, after they complete the assessment. Do not enter your name or web site address, that you already entered on the first screen - these will automatically be included in the "signature" of your message.
Thank you message:
Enter the message you would like your users to see on their screen, after they complete the assessment. The words "Thank You for Completing the [assessment name]" will automatically appear on that page, so enter whatever else you'd like your users to know.
Save file for future editing:
If you want to be able to update your assessment at a later time, you must save the file in your account. When you're ready to make changes, simply login to your account and the assessments and formst you previously created and saved will be available there.
