Number Fields provide a wide range of choices for collecting numeric and scaled data. Like Text Fields, there are three formatting options for Number Fields, each of which can be customized!

Likert Style Number Field

On a scale of 1-10, how much do you love Likert Scales? Us too! This field type is ideal for obtaining feedback and indicating student preference. There are five standard options responders can choose from including "strongly agree", "agree", "neutral", "disagree", and "strongly disagree". These choices are static and cannot be altered.


For a personalized set of options for responders to choose from, a Choice Field may work better for you needs!
