When viewing or editing a questionnaire from the list of questionnaires a series of fields or attributes are listed. Below, each of these is detailed:
Control of Consistency: When viewing a questionnaire both in the edit view and in the constructor, an indicator of consistency problems may appear with the questionnaire in the upper part (This only appears if there are inconsistencies, otherwise it is not shown). The indicator can be yellow indicating minor inconsistencies, which means that the questionnaire can be used, but it could have some unwanted characteristics (such as not having a set of scoring ranges to evaluate the questionnaire). If the indicator is red it means that the questionnaire has serious inconstancy and can not be used (such as not having questions). Clicking on this indicator will list the detected inconsistencies. These can be of two types:
- Warning: What corresponds to minor inconsistencies that do not prevent the questionnaire from being used. The consistency indicator will be yellow if it only has inconsistencies of this type.
- Inconsistency: These are severe inconsistencies that prevent the questionnaire from being used. If there is an inconsistency of this type, the consistency indicator will turn red.
Id: It is the identification code of the questionnaire. All entities in Evalart have a unique numeric code called “Id”. In the particular case of the questionnaires, this identifier corresponds to the Id of the master questionnaire (For more information see “Versions of Questionnaires”)
Name: It is the name of the questionnaire. This is the data shown in the listings or anywhere where questionnaires are listed.
Description: It is a description of the questionnaire.
Level: Corresponds to the level of difficulty of the questionnaire. It can have 3 values (Easy, Medium and Difficult) or “N / A” if the concept does not apply to this questionnaire. For example, a questionnaire that measures programming knowledge can be “Easy” to evaluate beginners and to evaluate programmers with more experience or for more complex work you can use one of “Difficult” level. A personality test in contrast probably indicates a level of “N / A” since the term level of difficulty does not apply in this type of questionnaire.
Status: Status of the questionnaire (If active or deleted)
Time Limit: The time limit assigned to the questionnaire, expressed in minutes. In case the questionnaire does not have a time limit, the value for this field is zero. The time begins to run since the person who answers the questionnaire starts this. Time does not stop even if the browser is closed during the execution of the questionnaire.
Limit of Days: The limit of days is similar to the time limit but measured in days.
Type of Record: The type of record indicates the requirements that must be met for a person to answer the questionnaire. For the version corresponding to this guide, only one type of “xxxx” record is enabled, which requires that the people who are going to answer the questionnaire have received an invitation by mail generated from the process module.
Show Final Score: Indicates if the person answering the questionnaire will have access to see their results after the questionnaire is finished.
Language: The language of the questionnaire. The buttons and other predefined texts of the questionnaire will be displayed in the selected language. If you work with the questionnaire in the editor, you will list questions and contents in this language by default.
Score Ranges: The score range table that will be used to score the questionnaire. It is possible to associate the same table with several questionnaires.
Type: A general classification of the type of questionnaire.
Family and subfamily: Allows to classify a questionnaire within a family and subfamily (for example, family programming and Java subfamily). By default in the questionnaire builder the questions that correspond to this family and subfamily will be shown as available to add to the questionnaire.
Results Report: Indicates the report format to be used to see the results of the questionnaires answered.
Negative to zero in total score: Convert the total score of the questionnaire to zero if it became negative. The total score can become negative if there are alternative questions with negative values, for example.
Negative to zero in category score: It works the same as the previous option, but for the scores by category.
Increase Total Score: Value that is added to the total score in all cases. It is usually used to move score ranges so that they do not start in negative or zero
Increment Rating Categories: Value that is added to the score of the categories in all cases. U is usedsumente to move score ranges so that they do not start in negative or zero. Score format: Define how the total score is shown in the reports and list. You can use the following markers: << SCORE >>, << MAXSCORE >> and << RESULTNAME >>. The score score will take the value of the score, maxscore the maximum possible score for the questionnaire and resultname the name corresponding to the score range associated with the score. For example << SCORE >> of << MAXSCORE >> would show something like “12 of 20” for a questionnaire that obtained a score of 12 out of a maximum of 20. To modify any attribute of the questionnaire you should go to the editor, either from the List of Questionnaires or from the Questionnaire Builder.
