Instructor: Survey Builder - Types of Survey Questions
Surveys in Course Evaluations & Surveys:
Can contain any combination of available survey question types.
Be organized using survey labels.
Can be configured with branching logic.
When creating or editing a survey you will see numeric weightings for each response option, as well as additional properties selected for each question.
Single Selection Question
Single Selection Question type is where the student will pick from one of many options. This works best for yes/no and likert-type scale questions and can be formatted both vertically and horizontally.
Multiple Selection Question
Multiple Selection Question type allows the student to check all that apply and is only appropriate when asking the student to select multiple or potentially multiple responses from multiple options.
Matrix Question type has a common response scale and multiple items being evaluated on the same response scale. Here, the student would go through and respond to the different items from one response scale.
Numeric Selection Question
Numeric Selection Question type allows you to setup numeric ranges using a slider and the student can then input a numeric selection based on that range.
Open-Ended Text Response Question
Open-Ended Text Response Question Type is for write-in responses and/or comments.
The Survey Label is text that you can add anywhere in the body of your survey to organize, write instructional text or add a thank you message at the end. You can insert these survey labels anywhere throughout your survey to add these text breaks.

Branching logic (sometimes called skip logic) allows the CES Administrator to manage the questions presented to a respondent, based on the user’s response options.
