Helpful Hints - Create Evaluation Questions

  • Editing a question changes that question in all evaluations the question has been used. Best Practice is to make changes to the grammar or correct errors but not change the meaning or the structure of the question.
  • In a Multiple Choice - Multiple Answers question, the user will not be able to select more than one choice if they have selected either "None of the Above" or "All of the Above".
  • The same questions may be repeated in different sections on an evaluation (with the exception of multi-part). The system will give a warning to the administrator that the question appears multiple times. Evaluation Reports will list the question once for that evaluation, but the number of responses will indicate that this question was answered more than once for each user.
  • Categorizing questions will allow you to quickly add all questions in a category when you can create the evaluations.
