This video demonstrates how to create a multiple choice question where the answers are selected using radio buttons.
- [Instructor] In this movie, I'm going to show you how to add another question. It's basically a multiple-choice question, and our choices are going to be using radio buttons for the selection. So to add another question, we're going to click on the settings menu and choose add question. It's going to take us to our new question page, and we're going to add our question. Our question is going to be, how important do you consider health insurance to be? And we'll see that the selection that we're going to choose for the type of answer is choice.
Now I didn't select that radio button there, it was selected by default, because this is probably the most popular answer type that we have in our survey. So they just leave that selected by default. Now I could change to other things. We'll leave that at choice, that is the one we want. And when we scroll down, we actually have a number of types of choice questions, drop-down menu, radio buttons, or checkboxes.
And we'll get to all of these in future videos, but we're going to use radio buttons, again, already selected because it is the most popular. Now let's go back up, you'll see, do we want to require a response to this question? This means that people can't leave this question unanswered in the survey, if you select yes. So it's up to you whether you want it, yes, no, we're not going to make people answer this question, so we're going to leave that no. And do you want to enforce unique values, well for this type of question, we're going to say no.
For this particular question, people are going to have similar answers, so we're going to leave that at no. Now we see, type each choice on a separate line. So let me delete that. And my first response is going to be, extremely important. And then I'm going to enter to move down to the second line. Now I'm going to type in the rest of these, and there are the rest of my responses, extremely important, somewhat important, neutral, somewhat unimportant, and extremely unimportant.
Most of you have probably seen similar types of questions like this. Alright so let's go ahead and we'll continue on down, we're going to leave that at radio buttons. Now, do we want to allow for a fill-in choice? Do we want to have a blank space where people could write in their own answer? That's always a good option for certain types of questions, we're not going to do it for this one. So we're going to leave that at no, and our default value is a choice or a calculated value. We're going to just leave it at choice, and again, we are not going to deal with column formatting in this course.
So let's go ahead, scroll down to the bottom, click on finish. And it takes us back to the home page of our survey, and we click on respond to this survey to see our questions. We see our first question, and here is our second question, how important do you consider health insurance to be? And the people have their choices with their radio buttons they can select whatever they want. So we're going to cancel that, because we don't want to answer the questions right now, we don't want to respond fully to the survey and have it save our responses until later.
But now you know how to go ahead and add a radio button choice question to a survey.
