This option is very useful during results addition and analyzing – it allows to omit the answer we have chosen, which we considered neutral in relation to a specific question (eg „I do not know”, „not applicable”). In this way, we avoid detection of incorrect regularities or issuing unauthorized applications about a given person.
How do you mark a „I don’t know” answer as a neutral answer?
At the beginning, act as when creating each new question:
- Click Create tab on the left, main menu (1), and then clock on the panel to add the text of introduction to the survey or question (2).
- From the list of available questions, select the type that interests you (eg sible choice, multiple choice, matrix questions, drop-down list).
- Enter the question and type all answers.
- In the Additional Options (on the right) (3) field, select Neutral answer (4).
- Using the drop down list (5), choose which answer shouldn’t be counted for a summary of results.
- To confirm the changes, click Save (6) to cancel the activity, click Cancel (7).
- The result of selecting the „neutral answer” option is the fact that the selected answer is skipped when creating percentages of aggregate results.
Worth to remember:
- Marking the answer as neutral is possible only in the case of single and multiple choice questions, single and multiple choice matrix questions, and drop-down lists.
- Remember! In a given question, only one answer can be neutral.
- In the case of creating a test, the effect of the introduced changes will be the inability to later assign points or weights to the answer previously marked as neutral.
