Multi-Factor Sliders

What is a Multi-Factor Slider?

Multi-Factor Slider QuestionMuch like the Multi-Factor Scale, this question type allows your respondents to evaluate a single question or statement through multiple sliders.

Why use a Multi-Factor Slider?

Sliders are a powerful interactive tool that will keep your respondents engaged in your survey. They also allow you to collate multiple sub-evaluations of a single topic, by breaking down complex questions into several categories.

How do I create a Multi-Factor Slider?

  1. Open the Form tab
  2. Click 'New question'
  3. Select Multi-Factor Slider
  4. Enter your question above the sliders
  5. Click the text boxes at either end of the sliders to assign the extreme titles

Add Another Slider

  1. Click the Multi-Factor Slider
  2. Select 'Add another scale'

Default Settings

There will be two sliders present, once you’ve inserted a Multi-Factor Slider into your project. One will be scaled from ‘Sour’ to ‘Sweet’, whilst the other will be scaled from ‘Bland’ to ‘Spicy’. These are easily changeable by clicking the text and inserting your new titles.

Question Quick Menu

Inside the Question Settings Bar for Multi-Factor Slider you have several options:

  • Numbered: This button toggles the numbering for the concerned question.
  • Personal info: When enabled, the data from any question marked as PII in the ‘question settings’ will be stored as a separate response. Allowing you to identify who has completed your survey, and at what time, without viewing the other answers they’ve given.
  • Required: By checking this box, respondents cannot finish the survey without completing the question.
  • Selection type: Use this drop-down to switch between the scale and slider format.
  • Range start - range end*: Set the start and end range numbers for your scale or slider.

How respondents interact with Multi-Factor Sliders

Participants will be able to drag the slider along the bar, or simply click the position they want the bar to be set in. Alternatively, they can type a number into the textbox below the slider.

How to analyze the Quick Report?

On the left of your Data Table, you’ll find the titles of your extremes that correspond with the scales you provided in your slider. In the center will be your range of answer options, and then to the right, you’ll see statistics concerning standard deviation, number of responses, and weighted averages.

By default, your results will be illustrated as a Column Graph, but you can change it to a Doughnut Chart, Line Graph, Radar Chart, or Pie Chart in the Question Quick Menu.
