Presentation text survey question


What is a presentation text question?

Presentation text is a text that can be used as messages, instructions, or headings in your survey. It can also be used to visually separate sections in your survey. The section headings can also be used in the reports to help visually see groups of questions.

The presentation text question is one of the static content types that QuestionPro surveys offer. It means this type of text is only for the display purpose and doesn't require any input from the respondents.

Such static content types serve to offer supporting information to respondents only. As no input is expected from the respondents, they are also not considered while generating reports from the survey data.

If a company wants to conduct a competency assessment, they can inform the employees about the purpose of the survey. They can also add some information about what will be done with their responses. For instance, they can add the below text as the survey introduction or presentation text.

'The goal of this assessment is to help you understand your strengths, improvement areas, and how we, as an organization, can help you achieve your maximum potential.

Your responses will be used by the Learning & Development department to suggest the training you should take.

The assessment will take 10 mins to complete, and your responses will be kept confidential.'
