WITH THE HELP OF A LITTLE JAVASCRIPT, you can start to employ standard HTML form elements to provide input to your questions:
  • radio buttons
  • check boxes
  • drop down lists
  • text boxes

JavaScript programming is easy if you know how, but is not a task for the technically-unadventurous. If that describes you, you have two choices:

  • have a programmer create some templates for you - all you have to do is fill in the content
  • buy a web development tool that includes scripted question templates (Macromedia Dreamweaver Attain being a recently-launched example)

Here are some examples of questions employing scripted input methods. The first is a multiple choice question using radio buttons:

The next uses check boxes to allow the user to make multiple selections from a list of options:

This example uses a series of drop-down lists to create a matching question:

Text boxes are primarily used for the supplying question type. Here a single text box is used to obtain numerical input:

In this example, a series of text boxes are used to ‘fill-in-the-blanks’:
