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.

Edit assessment

Then click on the Questions tab at the top of the page.

There are 6 options available for simple assessments and 7 options available for type-based assessments:

  1. Yes/No or True/False (“Binary”) question

  4. Checkbox Question
  5. Narrative Question
  6. Numeric Entry Question

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.

Field Prompt

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:

Field Prompt Example

Assign an Identifier

This is an optional field that enables you to reference the answer to a question.

Answer Identifier

This field could be used to display a respondent’s answer in the assessment results or you can use it to pass the answer through a webhook or Zapier integration to an outside application.
In our earlier example, we could set our identifier for our numeric question to be something like “respondent_age”.

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:
