Assessment (survey)

Assessment (Survey) 

Assessment questions allow for the use of a Likert scale. This question type is perfect for surveys, or any time you’re asking a user to rate something on a scale

  • Only one answer may be selected 
  • You can add text/images before and/or after the scale 
  • There is no limit to the number of options available in the assessment 
  • Enclose the entire assessment with curly braces { and } 
  • Enclose each individual answer with square brackets [ and ] 
  • The maximum possible score is equal to the total number of options 


  • less true { [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] } more true 
  • { [disagree] [not sure] [agree] } 

Example 1: 1 is the least true; it’s worth 1 point. 5 is the most true; it’s worth 5 points. 

Example 2: disagree is worth 1 point. not sure is worth 2 points. agree is worth 3 points. 

This type of question is great for pre-course or end-of-course surveys.
