Create Items and Questions

How Do You Create Items and Questions?

Now that you’ve created a template for your survey you can begin adding and designing the format of your questions.  Qualtrics has a plethora of options when it comes to formatting and customizing your survey questions.

 

To get started, make sure you are in the Survey tab on the toolbar (in the example below, "test" is the name of a new survey project). 

By default, a multiple choice question template will appear after you create a new survey. In order to change the first question type, click in the question area and the Change Question Type bar will appear in the right hand side of the site.  You now have the option to edit the number of multiple choice answers for each question.  You can also select horizontal if you want your multiple choice answers to be displayed next to one another rather than vertically.

 

Now, if you want to change the format of your question from multiple choice to something else, click on the green Multiple Choice bar.  Now you should see an image with all of the possible question types.  When you scroll over each type of question with your mouse – a pop-up image with an example and a brief explanation of each question type appears.
