When viewing or editing a questionnaire from the list of questionnaires a series of fields or attributes are listed. Each of these is detailed below:
Consistency Control: When viewing a questionnaire both in the editing view and in the questionnaire builder, an indicator of any consistency problems may appear on the questionnaire in the upper part (This only appears if there are inconsistencies, otherwise it is not shown). The indicator can be yellow representing 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. There are two types:
- Warning: This corresponds to minor inconsistencies that do not prevent the questionnaire from being used. The consistency indicator will be yellow if it only has this tipe of inconsistency.
- Inconsistency: These are severe inconsistencies that prevent the questionnaire from being used. If there is this type of inconsistency, the consistency indicator will turn red.
ID: This is the identification code of the questionnaire. All entities in Evalart have a unique numeric code called “ID”. For questionnaires, this identifier corresponds to the ID of the master questionnaire (For more information see “Versions of Questionnaires”)
Name: This is the name of the questionnaire. This is the information shown in the listings or anywhere where questionnaires are listed.
Description: This is the description of the questionnaire.
Level: Corresponds to the level of difficulty of the questionnaire. There can be 3 values (Easy, Medium and Difficult) or “N / A” if does not apply to this questionnaire. For example, a questionnaire that measures programming knowledge could be “Easy” to evaluate beginners, , while a “Difficult questionnaire could be used to evaluate programmers with more experience or for more complex work. A personality test, however, would probably show “N / A” since the term “level of difficulty” does not apply in this type of questionnaire.
Status: Status of the questionnaire (If it is active or has been deleted).
Time Limit: The time limit assigned to the questionnaire, expressed in minutes. If the questionnaire does not have a time limit, the value for this field is zero. The time begins to run as soon as the candidate starts the questionnaire. The 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 be able 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 edit the questionnaire in the editor, all questions and any other contents will, by default, be displayed in this language.
Score Ranges: The score range table which will be used to score the questionnaire. The same table can be associated with several questionnaires.
Type: A general classification of the type of questionnaire.
Family and subfamily: Questionnaires can be classified within a family and a subfamily (for example, programming family and Java subfamily). In the questionnaire builder, the questions that correspond to the family and subfamily will be shown by default 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 is negative. The total score can be negative if, for example, there are alternative questions with negative values.
Negative to zero in category score: This works the same as in the previous option, but is for the category scores.
Increase Total Score: Value that is added to the total score in all cases. This is usually used to move score ranges so that they do not start as negative or zero.
Increment Rating Categories: Value that is added to the score of the categories in all cases. This is usually used to move score ranges so that they do not start as 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 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. In order to modify any attribute of the questionnaire you must go to the editor, either from the List of Questionnaires or from the Questionnaire Builder.
