Attention: Many links on this page link back to pages regarding standard Qualtrics surveys, not just 360 surveys. Detailed below are the differences you will need to be aware of on each page. While some content may look slightly different when creating your 360 survey, feature functionality remains the same.

About Standard & Specialty Questions

The right question type can make all the difference for people taking the survey and for reporting on your results. Qualtrics offers many question types, but best practice for 360 surveys is to use standard questions wherever possible: Matrix Table, Multiple Choice, and Text Entry questions. Due to more complicated reporting, Qualtrics recommends only using Side by Side question types in situations where Multiple Choice, Matrix Table, and Text Entry question types would not suffice.

Standard Questions

Multiple Choice

The Multiple Choice question type works the exact same way in 360 surveys as it does in standard Qualtrics surveys, except that the visualizations offered in the Survey Platform reports do not apply to subject or admin reports in 360. However, the Data tab export in 360 is the same as the Data & Analysis export described for the Survey Platform. For more information, visit the Survey Platform’s Multiple Choice support page.

Matrix Table

The Matrix Table question type works the exact same way in 360 surveys as it does in standard Qualtrics surveys, except that the visualizations offered in the Survey Platform reports do not apply to subject or admin reports in 360. However, the Data tab export in 360 is the same as the Data & Analysis export described for the Survey Platform. For more information, visit the Survey Platform’s Matrix Table support page.

Text Entry
