Scale survey question type

Does anyone know if the scale survey question acts as a slider (continuum) from the left label to the right label?  Or do students have to pick one end or the other?  The student preview view states to pick one answer, but isn't being interactive.  Thanks!

Hi Holly!


When you select the scale option on a survey you can create the actual values that a student can chose from. So if your scale is 1-5, you can give students the choice to select 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5. 


Hope this helps!

I see this as an option for the Rating type of question. However, the Scale type of question asks for an input on the left label and the right label. Do I need to add more label options to make this work for students.

Hi Holly!


The left and right label are used to help students see the range of the scale. This is shown above the choices that you provide. So after adding the labels, you can create the choices that you want to provide students:

This is what it would look like inside the course:
