Directional Events

Version 3.6 and above.

Directional events are events in which you can direct users to specific questions (skipping questions) depending on how they answer the current question. 

Important Notes


For example, let's say you have the following questions.

  1. What animal do you like better?
       Cats (choice)
       Dogs (choice)
     
  2. Why do you like dogs better than cats?
     
  3. What do you like the most about dogs?
     
  4. Why do you like cats better than dogs?
      
  5. What do you like the most about cats?

If the individual chooses the answer Cats for question 1, you surely don't want to ask them question 2 or question 3.  In this case, you can direct the individual to question 4 and skip questions 2 and 3.


In order to direct users, you have to define the question number that you want to direct the individual to.

This will be done in the answer box or the other choices box using the method:

answer==>3
choice==>7

The ==> is the marker to tell EventHandler that it is going to direct to a specific question.

If you do not want to direct them to a specific questions, and you just want them to move onto the next question, you won't use the  ==> marker.


Below is an example of how you would setup a question so it would be directional.

1 Enter your question:
Multiple Choice:
Text Field:
Text Box:
True/False:
Radio:
Checkbox:

Answer Required:
Randomize Choices
Don't show in totals
Enter the correct answer:
If multiple choice, enter other choices to include. One per line.
Link:   (Can be used to redirect to hints, more info, etc.)
Do not include this question when checking if correct/incorrect

The above would produce a question that would look like:

1. What color is the sky? *
    Blue
    Red
    Orange
    Green

In the example above, if the individual were to select Blue as an answer to the question, they would be directed to question 6.

If they were to select Red, they would be directed to question 4. If they would to select Green, they would be directed to question 9.  If they were to choose Orange, they would move on to the following question by default, which would be question 2.


Important Notes:

  1. You cannot redirect to the end of a survey without asking a final question.  For example, if you have 10 questions, you always have to ask question 10.
       
    We suggest you use something like a comment box for your final question.
     
    We are working on changing this in a future version.
      
  2. EventHandler is not designed to direct in a backwards fashion. It is designed to direct forwards only. In other words, you do not want to direct to questions 1 through 4 if you are at question 5. You should only redirect to questions 6 and above. 

    We have successfully tested events backwards however we cannot guarantee they will work perfectly.  Try it if you like.  If it works, let us know! 
      
  3. You should not direct the individual to a question that they have already been directed to previously.  If you do, it can have an adverse affect on your data and totals.
      
  4. Your marker must always be 2 equal signs followed by a greater than sign such as ==>.
      
  5. Only one question can be asked per page using directional events.
