Add Elements to Question List


What Are "Elements"

Use the design questionnaire page to enter elements:

  • The Question Headings that introduce questions in the questionnaire
  • The questions: NumericsDual-scale Numerics, and Narrative Comments
  • LinesVertical Spaces, and Text Blocks used to add clarity

Because the feedback is tallied for each Question Heading, do not place any of these elements before the first Question Heading: Narrative Comments, Numeric Questions, Dual Scale Numeric Questions.

If you are adding new elements, click "Add New" to first choose a location for the new element(s), and then add the element itself. Once you have completed adding them here, you can add other elements elsewhere by clicking "Add New" again. 

Numerics and Dual-scale Numerics

Numeric questions ask the responder to rate a given statement on a numbered scale (e.g. 1-4). Example of a statement: "Communicates well in writing."

The scale for this question could be:

  • Agreement: Strongly Disagree, Disagree, Agree, Strongly Agree.
  • Skill Level: Severely Unskilled, Unskilled, Fairly Skilful, Highly Skilful.
  • Frequency: Rarely, Sometimes, Fairly Often, Frequently.

Dual-scale Numerics allow the Responder to answer every question on two scales.

For instance, you could use a Skill Level scale and an Importance scale: Completely Unimportant, Unimportant, Important, Highly Important. This would allow you to differientiate those skills which are critical for a person's job from those at which they might be expert but which are unimportant.

Or you could use Skill Level and Expected Level: Severely Unskilled, Unskilled, Fairly Skilful, Highly Skilful. This would allow you to display in the report the "gap" between skills and expectations.

Dual-scale questionnaires can be displayed on a special "Scattergraph", which shows the results in two dimensions.

Important: You cannot mix Numerics and Dual-scale Numerics in the same questionnaire.
