Create answers for questions

Questions with Choice or Likert Scale data types must have defined answer options, called metric definitions.

About this task

When you create a question with one of these data types, the Assessment Metric Definitions related list appears. Each metric definition appears as one answer option for a question on a quiz. For example, the question What type of men's trousers are not permitted by company policy? might have these three answers configured as metric definitions: Slacks, Jeans, and Casual cotton.


To create an answer option, open the question record you want to edit and click New in the Assessment Metric Definitions related list. Be sure to give each option a Value. The system uses this number to establish the order in which the answers appear in the quiz.
