Adding Numeric Questions
To add a numeric question to your assessment, start by entering the Assessment Generator editor.
First, select the “Edit” link in the menu underneath your assessment.
Then click on the Questions tab at the top of the page.
Create a Numeric Question
To add a question for our assessment, click on the “Add Question” button.
A window pops up so you can choose the type of question to add.
There are 6 options available for simple assessments and 7 options available for type-based assessments:
- Yes/No or True/False (“Binary”) question
- Scale Question
- Options (or Multiple Choice) Question
- Checkbox Question
- Narrative Question
- Numeric Entry Question
- Ranking Question (type-based only)
We’re going to create a “Numeric Entry” q
Enter Your Question
Enter your question in the editor window and adjust the styling as desired.
You can also include an image, video, symbols, and/or tables with, or instead of, your text.
Add a Field Prompt
Next, you can set a field prompt for your numeric entry question.
Whatever you enter as your field prompt will show up in your assessment on the line where your respondents will enter their answer to your question.
For example, if your question is “What is your current age (in years)?”, your field prompt might be something like “age”.
Then, the question will look like this in your assessment:
Assign an Identifier
This is an optional field that enables you to reference the answer to a question.
Then, in the assessment results we could reference that answer like this:
You’ve indicated that you are currently ###respondent_age### years old.
The assessment results would then show the answer like this:
You’ve indicated that you are currently 39 years old.
If one is set for a question, it will appear on the Questions Page in the editor just to the upper left of that question:
Question Required Setting
Scroll down to see where you can require the user to answer the question.
If this box is unchecked, this question is optional and the user can proceed to the next question without answering it.
Question Enabled Setting
Next is the question enabled setting. Each question that you create will be enabled by default. You can choose to disable individual questions in your assessment by unchecking this box.
Optional Notes Field
Finally, there’s an additional text window where you can add notes that will appear below the question.
This field is optional and exists to provide more flexibility when designing your assessment.
Save Your Question
When you click the “Save” button to store your question settings, you are returned to the question tab, where you can see your recently-added question.
