Can you have answers appear directly after users make a choice?


I am designing an interactive quiz/questionnaire which is, in part, intended to encourage participants to sign up for my training programs.  As such, it is my intent that users will answer one question, and then be given the answer before they move on to the next question.

This feature is important, because the answers for previous questions actually guide them and provide additional info for subsequent questions, so they are learning as they are doing the quiz.

The free, basic version definitely doesn’t seem to have this kind of functionality; and I’ve been unable to determine if the paid version does.  If it does, I’m happy to pay; if it doesn’t, then there’s no point in paying, as this is not the tool I need.

For those answering this question, if it is possible to do what I want to do, please A) tell me specifically how it will be done, and B) if possible, provide a link to a quiz/survey that uses this method, so I can check it out and verify it is what I want to do.

To help elaborate, here is an example:

Question One: It’s necessary to learn certain patterns or behaviors about different cultures, in order to understand them.  “Germans are usually more strictly time conscious” or “Japanese bow when they greet each other”

Radio Button Options: True / Partly True / False

Answer:  There is, of course, great value to learning the specifics of a particular culture, especially if you are going to be dealing with people from the culture frequently.  Understanding that in Japan, it’s not only normal to bow when greeting others, but that making direct eye contact with someone in a superior position can be seen as impolite, disrespectful, or aggressive.  Or that in many Middle Eastern countries, the “thumbs up” sign doesn’t indicate approval, but rather is an obscenity similar to the middle finger in North America.  Not knowing these things can lead to many mistakes and misunderstandings.

However, learning to understand those behaviors doesn’t mean that you understand the culture.  No more than learning how to play chopsticks on the piano means that you are a successful concert pianist.  There are much deeper levels to culture, and by focusing primarily on these superficial behaviors — as valuable as they are — we may end up missing out on or ignoring much more important things that are happening beneath the surface.  Just as learning music theory is important to learning to play an instrument, so learning cultural theory is important to learning to understand and adapt to other cultures.


Ideally, the question and radio buttons should appear first.  After the participant makes a choice, then the answer will appear.  Once they’ve read that, they will move on to the next question.

Thank you for any and all help you can offer!

    This is easy to do with question logic.  Check the SurveyGizmo documentation for examples and details –

    In the documentation, the example shows how a response to a radio button question triggers the appearance of a follow-up question.  You will be using basically the same process to make TEXT/MEDIA items appear.

    Good luck!
