QSM Polar

Polar Question Type will allow users to share their answers by adjusting the slider between the two options.

Polar Question Type is very useful when you want the user to swipe the slider in response to the asked question. Sliding makes it feel more natural and easy as we are used to sliding our fingers on our smartphones.

To start making our first Quiz/Survey with Polar Question Type head on to the Quizzes/Surveys section on the sidebar. Once in, create a new quiz/survey by clicking on “Add New” button.

Type any name as you wish, I’m going to name it as “Polar Quiz Demo” and press “Create” This creates a new post with your given name. Hover the cursor on the newly created post and press “Edit”.

This opens up a window with multiple Tabs. With the first being, Questions Tab. Click “Create New Page” and then “Create New Question”.

Choose the Question Type as “Polar” from the drop-down list. I’m going to create a Polar questions survey, so I’m selecting Polar as my question type and writing down my question in the below text-box.

After writing the questions make sure you provide relevant answers and tick the correct answer checkbox if you want to create a Graded Quiz/Survey. You also can allot some points to make the Quiz/Survey more interesting.

You can try the advanced features like “Correct Answer Info” where the user gets to see the detailed explanation of the correct answer after they finish the quiz.

You can also provide a hint to the user regarding the possible answer via. the “Hint” textbox. Force the user to provide the answer without which they cannot proceed with the quiz by selecting “Yes” from the “Required?” dropdown.

Though I’m going to keep it simple and just categorize the Survey as “Survey” in the advanced options. And, hit Save Question.

If you have entered the correct answer info then you need to make a little change in the configuration, head to the “Text” tab, and add the %CORRECT_ANSWER_INFO%  code into the %QUESTIONS_ANSWERS% text box.

Since I haven’t entered the correct answer info, I’m keeping it blank and also removing the unwanted text from it and then hitting the Save Button.

Moving to the “Results” Tab, you can check out all the available template variables and use what suits your survey. I’ve removed the unwanted text and gone with what is shown below.

Do check out various styles from the “Style” tab and hit the “Save Quiz Style” Button. This was all about the Polar Question Type in QSM.
