[Solved] Creating alternative questions


Hello. I’d like to create an exam where there are two questions that are similar, but not the same, and Survey Gizmo chooses one of each for each exam. That would mean that people taking the test next to each other wouldn’t have the same question at the same time. Does Survey Gizmo have this capability? Thanks.

    Hi Sarah!

    Great question! I would like to mention before I describe your options, that maintaining the same question instead of creating two separate questions for the same data set will be better in the end so you don’t have to manually combine the results.:)

    What you are describing can be done through a couple of different features we have.

    Here is a list of features that come to mind when thinking about how we can build this while still keeping in mind your data collection:)

    1. Page Randomization- This will allow you to randomize the order of the exam while still keeping the questions consistent. Here is a link that will show you more on this feature: http://help.surveygizmo.com/help/article/link/randomize-pages
    2. Answer option Randomization- On top of the questions being out of order, you can change the answer option placeholder to avoid cheating of any kind:) Here is a link to our documentation: http://help.surveygizmo.com/help/article/link/randomization
    3. Question Randomization- To add to the randomization fun! Here is a link for that: http://help.surveygizmo.com/help/article/link/randomize-questions
    4. If Randomization it not what you have in mind, you can always use our percent branch to force a particular percentage of respondent down a customized page path. Here is a link that will show you more on this: http://help.surveygizmo.com/help/article/link/branching-a-b-split-testing
      1. This solution would require you to create two different questions for each data set, which would make you combine your results in the end.

    I hope all of this information helps!
