Create Surveys with Open Ended Question for Free!

What are open ended, sometimes called 'free-form' questions? Unlike a closed ended question that leaves your responses narrow and limited, a free-form question allows you to probe deep into the respondent's answers, gaining valuable information about the subject at hand. The responses to these questions can be used to attain detailed, descriptive information, otherwise unattainable.

Using Open Ended Questions for Feedback - Things to Remember

While QuestionPro makes it easy to jump in and create, distribute, and analyze free, online open ended question surveys in mere minutes, there are a few additional considerations that make our solution stand out. As you are evaluating and creating your open ended questions, consider the following:

Creation

How extensive is their open ended question survey library? There shouln't be any reason to completely 're-create the wheel' if it isn't absolutely necessary. Can an existing open ended question survey template be used as a baseline and then personalized to fit the specific needs of your survey with open ended questions?
QuestionPro's answer to these questions and more, is YES!

Distribution

Once your open ended question survey is ready for feedback, can the solution provider help you distribute the you open ended questions, such as email invitations, managing email lists, embedding into a webpage, posting to various social media networks and through generating and posting QR codes?
QuestionPro offers all of the above and more!

Analysis

Once your responses have been collected, where do you go from there? Is there a summary report of some kind that gives you a snap-shot of responses with visual tools like graphs and charts? Can you drill-down into the responses, filter responses based on criteria you establish, and share the results externally or selectively publish some results online to share with others?
A huge YES! from QuestionPro to all of these solutions and much more!
