  • 43. Tips on Writing Questions Name and Address-US 0 Avoid using this question template if you want to sort by last name, city, state, or zip code. Instead, create separate fill in the blank questions for each item of information you wish.
  • 44. Tips on Writing Questions Open Ended Comments 0 Avoid frequent use of comment boxes. The information is difficult to disaggregate. Do, however, offer a comments box at the end of your survey to give respondents a chance to voice their opinion, praise, or complain!
  • 45. Tips on Writing Questions Open Ended With More Than One Line with Prompts 0 Avoid using this type of question if you want to sort by any of the fields for which you want information.
  • 46. Tips on Writing Questions Open Ended vs. Multiple Choice 0 Open ended replies will be hard to analyze – “a couple years” or “15 months” More specific, easier to analyze
  • 47. Tips on Writing Questions Multiple Choice 0 Offer specific (not subjective) choices. What would “sometimes” mean? What kind of data would that provide?
  • 48. Tips on Writing Questions Voluntary vs. Mandatory 0 You can force a response by making a question mandatory, but make sure you offer sufficient alternatives.
  • 49. Using Skip Logic Skip Logic allows you to create custom paths through a survey which are determined by choices respondents make to a particular question. “ Yes” respondents would be skipped to a page of questions relevant to them. “No” respondents would be skipped to a different page. This avoids asking respondents to “Go to question 3 if you select YES or question 4 if you selected NO.” 0 More information can be found on the Zoomerang website Help section.
