Question Type


Multiple Choice

Ask people to choose one answer from your list of answer choices.


Ask respondents to evaluate a statement on a numerical scale.


Let people select multiple answers from your list of answer choices.


Provide a dropdown list of answer choices and ask people to choose one answer. This is a great way to save space if you have a long list of options, like country, state, or province.


Give people the option to pick one of two choices. Best for Yes/No questions.

Image picker

Ask people to choose from a number of images.

Single Textbox

A single textbox can be used when you want respondents to write in a short text or numerical answer to your question. You can also specify and validate a number value, date format, or email address.

Comment Box

Use the comment or essay box to collect open-ended, written feedback from respondents.

You can find each of these question types along the left of your Survey editor
