Creating A New AssessmentFrom inside the main page of your Assessment Generator account, you will find a button in the upper right-hand corner that says “New Assessment”.
Simple AssessmentA simple assessment gives a single numeric score based on how your your questions are answered. You assign points to the answer choices for each question to provide them with 1 overall score for your assessment. You can then create score bands (on the scoring tab of the assessment editor) and provide personalized content for your respondents based on their score.
Type-Based AssessmentWith a type-based assessment, you create types or categories and assign points from your questions to one or more of the types. Then after the assessment is completed, Assessment Generator automatically calculates a separate score for each type. This is useful when you want to provide your respondents with a score in each of several different categories. You can use this to identify a single highest or lowest scoring type. For example, you might ask your respondents a series of questions that identify them as a “thinker” or a “doer.” Then in their results, you would provide content specific to which type they scored highest in. Another way to use type-based assessments is to generate content based on how the user scored in every type. For example, if you have questions that score users’ life satisfaction in the areas of relationships, finanaces, career, and health, you could set up score bands in each of those categories. You could then include feedback based on score, for example: You scored high in relationship satisfaction… You scored medium in financial well being…
