Extraction enables you to display the selected options of a multi-select question as answer options of the next question.
If the respondent selects options AOL and Earthlink for question 1, and simple extraction to a matrix table has been enabled, then the extracted question (question 2) will display only the options selected by the respondent. This makes the survey a better experience for the respondent and makes the data more valid for the researcher, since the respondent is not having to provide answers about items they have not used. This is how the extracted question will look:
How can I set up extraction?
To set up extraction, go to:
Can I extract answer options from a matrix question?
Yes, matrix extraction is also available. You would have to select the options that you want to include in the extraction.
Can I re-order the extracted question?
Yes. It is possible to re-order the extracted question to anywhere in the survey after the source question (the question from which you extract). However, once you re-order the extracted question, you will need to set up branching logic on the source question to go to the appropriate question.
