Question types

SMART-TRIAL has 17 different question types, which allows you to module your data gathering the way that suits your study. Some of the question types requires you to give answer possibilities, some lets the subject answer via free text and some lets the subject chose between date, time or duration. 

To get the best result in your data gathering and make it easier for yourself to analyze the data gathered in your study, try to keep the questions and answers possibilities as simple as possible. 

For a better understanding of how to use the different question types, we have elaborated the individual types:

  • The Question text has a limit to 254 characters.
  • If your need more characters consider using the information text or if you want to inform the respondent of a range of the answer or further information, use the Help Text possibility or use the Information Text to elaborate on your question.
