In the last lesson we asked you to create some SECTIONS in your survey and to see how these were displayed on the SIMULATOR. If you have not done that, go back and do it now before continuing with this lesson.
This lesson will show you how to use other common QUESTION TYPES such as MENU, TICKLIST, NUMBER and MESSAGE.
Question types fit into three main categories: normal data input (TEXT, MENU, TICKLIST, NUMBER, FORMATTED, TIME), programming (CALCULATION, JUMP, MESSAGE) and special input (BARCODE, CAMERA, SKETCH, GPS).
Now do the following.
The next lesson will explore the CALCULATION question and introduce the CONCEPT of question VARIABLES.
If you get a question wrong simply select the question with the mouse, make any changes in the QUESTION DEFINITION DIALOG and click MODIFY.
A good step-by-step method to follow when creating or modifying questions is outlined below.
1. Position the mouse cursor at the desired point in the QUESTIONS AREA.
2. Choose the TYPE of question.
3. Type in a question PROMPT.
4. Choose a DATA DESTINATION FILE.
5. Set up the other parameters for the question.
6. Click INSERT or MODIFY.
