Survey with a numeric scale?


I would love to be able to create a survey with a scale (eg. 1-5). 

Maybe there is already a way to do so in H5P? If so, can you let me know?

Hi Brigette,

Quiz (Question) should be able to handle this with multiple choice acting as the survey question. Here is a simple sample feel free to download it and use as a template. Please note of the following.

In the Multiple Choice Behavioural settings:

  • Question type is single choice
  • Randomize Answer should be disabled (unless you use words as the answers or won't mind having the answers move around)
  • Give 1 point for the whole task is checked.

Main Question set settings

  • "Display results" and "Display solution button" under "Quiz finished"
  • Under Settings for "Check", "Show solution" and "Retry" -- "Show "Check" buttons" should be unchecked


Thanks BV52, 

Ideally I would like to make an "online form" of sorts with say 50 questions layed out in a grid format (questions on the y axis, scale on the x). But nonetheless thanks for the suggestions!

Thank you for the clarification. I think some minor tweaks in the Multi-choice content can achieve this and I hope someone from the community picks this up. ;-)


Hi, I also thought of doing the multiple-choice quiz item for a survey, however, I needed a way to use the points/grading system to determine recommendations to give based on the total points. Do you have suggestions how to do this?

For example: in a scale of 1 to 3, with 3 questions, the student chooses 3 for all, total 9 points, then they receive a message on the feedback for recommendations set for those who get points within a range of 7 to 9.

Hi acereviewcenter,

I'm afraid this is not possible. MCQ does not have an actual "survey" mode. The workaround I provided above can only act as a "survey" since it does not provide the user an actual score but outside of that there are a lot of limitations to it.


I see... can you recommend any other way? external link or so?

Hi acereviewcenter,

I'm afraid I don't know of any external sources. Someone else in the community may have other ideas.
