Pay close attention to the different types of questions on this sample survey.
  • Text:  For short answers
  • Paragraph Text:  For longer answers
  • Multiple Choice:  When you want ONE answer
  • Checkboxes:  When you want more than ONE answer
  • Choose from a List:  Drop down menu, for ONE answer, works best when you have a really long list of choices...saves room on the page. 
  • Scale:  For getting a range of answers for TWO extremes.  On a scale of 0-10 (or anything within that range)
  • Grid:  Use for comparing several items with the same criteria, scheduling, etc.  Only one choice allowed in each ROW.
