Creating Surveys in LifeJourney

Surveys are opportunities to collect custom information from test takers with standard tests in LifeJourney. Just like tests, surveys are made up of questions. Questions are sequenced into forms and forms are added to the beginning of a test.

  • Enter the Question name. Each question should have a unique question name. It is recommended that a consistent/standard naming convention be used for question names such that the resulting question bank over time can be easily searched and sorted according to form and test development needs.
  • Depending on the intent of use of the question, select either “Test” or “Survey” for Question objective. Test is used for any questions that are included in the official test, while Survey is used for the pre or post optional surveys to collect additional information from Learners such as expanded demographic data.
  • The choices for Question type are: single choice, multiple choice, drop-down, fill in the blank, and Open Response.
  • Response Required indicates a specific question must be answered by the test taker in order to proceed to the next question.
  • The Question text can be typed directly into the editor, or copied from a Word document. There are several edit options available, see table at the end.
  • The Answer text can be type directly into the editor, or copied from a Word document. Same edit options are available. For each possible answer to the question, click on the + Answer below the question editor. Each answer is entered in a separate editor window.

    • For each correct answer, select the Correct button to the right of the editor.
    • Based on the scoring type, multiple correct answers may be selected.
    • Repeat inserting answers until all have been added.
