Making survey questions in quiz

Making survey questions in quiz was created by Steven
I want to ask the user, "How many children are you bringing?" and show options 0 to 4. I want any answer to be correct, but I want the next few questions to ask things like, "Where is loud music allowed?" and "We accept credit cards, right?" These questions will have right and wrong answers.

When the results page displays, it scores the questions that have no right answer as wrong. How do I make certain questions accept any answer as correct? If I add a textbox that asks, "How was this quiz?", it still appears to score the answer to that question as wrong.

Hello Steve and thank you for posting!

All questions in a quiz are compared against their correct answers. A text question may have multiple correct answers, so you could theoretically add some known expected answers, but if the question will still be counted in scores and percentages.

I'm thinking of a possible hack that you could try. If your quiz is a score quiz, you could use normal radio buttons instead of score radio buttons, and vice versa. In a normal quiz, score radio buttons should probably be disregarded, and normal radio buttons in score quizzes.
I'm not 100% sure this will work, but you could try.

Now, another solution is to use the component options, (button Options on the top right of the Quiz manager) and add some extra fields at the end of the form. Those are not considered in the score, and this is the proper way to add what you are asking for, but you can't place them at the beginning of your quiz, only at the end.

If you want, we could implement a new question type, or add a field to choose whether this question is counted or not. Let me know.
Thanks again!

Thanks for the quick reply. I will test your suggestion and let you know if it works. Adding extra user data questions is something that occurred to me last night. The down side of that is that I have no control on the order of that question. It has to come at the end.

I definitely think you should add a check box to exclude questions from scoring or making a question a survey question even though it is on a quiz. It is common to ask questions for feedback like, "Do you think this quiz was an accurate assessment of your knowledge?". It is easier if that is all done at one time.

It would also be good if I could specify multiple correct answers to radio button questions. If I offer 1 through 10 and can specify 1 through 10 as right answers, that would also work.

The score quiz trick does not work. It just does not render the radio buttons at all and the code is displayed.

Hello again Steven.
Can you please try using a Radio Button question and leaving the Answer box completely empty?
I believe this should work.
