Validation Is Here

When you want to provide a little extra formatting guidance in your assessment, validation text entry questions might be the solution you’re looking for.

Validate Your Respondent’s Answers

Using Validated Text Entry Questions, you can take an extra step to ensure that your respondents format their answers correctly.

Ask your respondents for an email address, date, or URL, and their answer will be confirmed to be in the correct format.

Please note that our software is not able to verify that the email address, date, or URL entered is accurate, only that its format is consistent with acceptable standards for those data types.

Results are largely consistent across browsers Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Opera, IOS, and Safari for email and URL validation though the user experience does vary slightly depending on the platform.

Date validation is unfortunately not currently available on Safari, so for now we recommend using any of the other browsers for this purpose.

Please check out Adding Validated Text Entry Questions in our User Guide for details.

Boost Your Coaching Program’s Value With Self-Assessments

Boost Your Coaching Program’s Value With Self-Assessments

The most difficult part about selling coaching services is the lack of perceived tangible results.  This is especially true for life coaches, who frequently focus on goals other than increasing the bottom-line.  And when people can’t see a tangible result at the end of the process, it’s a lot harder to convince them to buy.

Some coaches have found a way to increase the level of tangibility by offering e-books, books, booklets, audios, manuals, and other physical products.  While these are all great items to use as bonuses, they may take a while to create.

Add Tangible Value

If you would like to add tangible value to your coaching program — but don’t want to spend weeks or months creating it — consider including a self-assessment to go with your coaching program.  Assessments are fun and will provide invaluable insights for your clients.

While it’s certainly possible to license the use of existing assessments, you can custom develop your own to immediately increase the value of your services. Begin by listing all the skills and competencies your clients must possess by the end of the coaching process.  Also, list all the activities and actions they must take to achieve maximum results with your program.

Then, create a detailed scoring key, explaining what their score means.  The longer the assessment, the more detailed the scoring key should be.

When you are done, format your assessment into a Word or PDF document so your clients can instantly download and print it out!

You can also completely automate your assessments with Assessment Generator. This online software tool allows you to quickly build custom coaching assessments, put them on your website, and have the results e-mailed to both you and your client instantly.

Give your assessment an attractive title, and even a cover graphic – in other words, treat it like a tangible product.  Nothing attracts coaching clients more than tangible results, and assessments will help you deliver exactly that!

Randomize your Questions

Randomize your Questions

Now you can randomize your assessment questions with Assessment Generator.

Want to display your questions to your respondents in a random order every time someone takes your assessment? We’ve got you covered!

We offer two different ways to shuffle the order of your assessment questions, depending upon how you set up your assessment.

Completely Random — Split Assessment by Pages

When you choose to display a specified number of questions on each page of your assessment, you can shuffle all of your questions and present them in completely random order.

 

Randomize Questions Pages

 

This means you can present your questions in a different order each time someone takes your assessment.

Your questions always stay in the order that you specify inside your account editor so you can easily analyze your respondents’ answers and observe patterns.

Randomizing your questions is a useful feature to encourage honesty in your respondents who like to “game the system”. It can also spice up the presentation of your assessment by providing a fresh look to every respondent.

Randomize within Sections — Split Assessment into Sections

When you choose to display your questions as grouped within designated sections, you can randomize your questions within each section.

 

Randomize Questions by Section

 

You specify the presentation order for your sections on the Setup Page in the assessment editor.

While the questions within each section are presented in a random order each time someone takes your assessment, the section order always remains the same.

Please check out Setting Up Your Assessment in our User Guide for more details.

How To Create Engaging Online Assessments

How To Create Engaging Online Assessments

Are you thinking about creating an online assessment to get two-way feedback from your clients? Great! You are one step closer to success. But it is essential to develop an assessment that clients and customers would want to engage with. If your online assessment is not interactive and doesn’t ask the right questions, you will lose a significant potential customer pool.  Assessment Generator can help you design the most interactive online assessment to increase your traffic and boost your audience.

Through a customer-centric approach and high-quality content, you will be able to gain insights into your customers’ needs and requirements and create your business strategy accordingly.

Here’s how our software helps create an engaging online assessment:

An Interactive Questionnaire

A good assessment is simple, straightforward, and easy to follow. Remember, your customers will only invest time in the questionnaire if it provides them with the value worth their time. We recommend that you keep the wording as simple to understand as possible.

You can add technical terminology only if it’s specific to your question and doesn’t have a close alternative. You should also avoid using vague and complicated vocabulary that leaves the readers confused and distracted. The main aim of an online assessment is to collect data from your customers. You can’t offer your audience the desired product or service without accurate information.

Easy to Use

Assessment Generator provides a user-friendly editor that makes it easy for you to create your business’s best assessment. You can also include images, audio, and videos to make the content more appealing. Moreover, to keep the design consistent with your brand, we recommend adding your logo and keeping the color scheme consistent with your website, logo, or product packaging.

We also have multiple question templates available that include options for binary questions, option questions including select one and select many, checkboxes, scales, and free-text questions—so your clients can freely express their opinions.

Pro-tip: Assign points for every question to score your assessment and automate the results.

Create Categories & Send Feedback

You can also create score bands to customize the feedback based on how each client scores on your assessment. The best way to go about this is to send friendly feedback to your clients through email, on-screen, and as a printable PDF. Assessment Generator also offers type-based assessments to help you customize your business content in multiple categories. Moreover, if you have the Private Label and Enterprise-level accounts/subscriptions, you can also add an eye-catching subject line in the emails to get in touch with potential customers. By reaching out to your clients, you can demonstrate your expertise and establish credibility with your expert analysis of a respondent’s results while creating a relationship that you can build on.

Share Your Assessment

After you are done customizing and designing an interactive assessment, click the share button and get ready for the best two-way feedback. You can post your online assessment on various social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. You can also capture leads through your website, influencer marketing, blogs, and email marketing.

Now that you know how to create an engaging online assessment start analyzing the information and make the best brand strategy! We can also meet your unique needs by customizing the evaluation to align with your brand. Want to see a sample assessment? Click here!
