To add or edit a question, choose the appropriate choice from the Section List, next to the desired section. Questions will be displayed in the order they are added to a section or in a random order, depending on the section settings, and you may reorder the questions later. Depending on the state of the section and if participants have taken the survey, some options will be automatically set for you, and not changeable. All fields must be filled out.
If the question is a multiple-choice question, you must also fill out the choices section that is part of the same form. A minimum of one choice must be provided for the question. Each choice may be up to 255 characters in length. When adding a question, there is space to add up to 10 choices. If you need to add more choices than this, simply add the question and go back to update it, and there will be an option to add more choices.
If the question is specified as numeric, you must provide a numeric choice. That choice must be a whole number (e.g. -5, 1, 0, 349). If you would like to provide descriptive text to accompany each numeric choice, you may do so by typing in the numeric choice and leaving one blank space after it, then type in the descriptive text. For example “5 Strongly Agree”. If you provide descriptive text along with the numeric choice, then you have the option of hiding the numeric value from participants, by choosing No to the “Display numeric value?” setting for the question. This is useful in reverse scale or other situations where the numeric value for the choices is not important.
When adding a question, if the choices you specify do not conform to the configuration of the question (e.g. specifying a non-numeric choice for a numeric question), the system may change the question configuration to ensure that the choices are then valid.
