Survey question types

Question types available to the Surveys tool are similar to the questions available in the Quizzes and Self Assessments tools. Surveys can contain the following question types:

You can also create the following information items:


  • Likert questions are unique to surveys only.
  • The system automatically omits solutions to questions when you import questions to surveys.
  • The system automatically omits points value and difficulty level indicators when you import questions to surveys.

Create a survey question or an information item

TipAs a best practice, we recommend that you create all survey questions within the Question Library. This enables you to reuse questions in various quizzes, surveys, and self assessments.

  1. Do one of the following:
    • On the Manage Surveys page, click Question Library from the tool navigation. Questions in the Question Library are shared between Self Assessments, Quizzes, and Surveys.
    • While editing or creating a survey, click Add/Edit Questions in the Properties tab.
  2. In the Question Library or the Add/Edit Questions area of the Surveys tool, click New and select the question type or information item you want to create.

Survey feedback

All survey question types allow you to include Feedback. Feedback enables you to provide added information as a basis for improving content comprehension after a user response.
