Create your Survey

  1. Log in to Google Drive
  2. Create a new form
  3. Name it My First Form
  4. Uncheck "Require CTK login to submit this form"
  5. Add "demographic" questions. Questions about the survey taker, like age, gender, and where they live.
  6. Add a multiple choice question about their favorite thing. You could ask about favorite pies, animals, sports, or anything! Give at least 4 options.
  7. Add a scale question: "How do you feel about ________ on a scale of 1 to 5?" The scale can go from dislike to love.
  8. Make sure "Allow respondents to submit another response" is checked.
