single-line text box for entry of text, such as a name or phone number
Text area: Presents users with a labeled
multiple-line text area for entry of long text items, such as
addresses or extended responses
Checkbox: Presents users with a checkbox and
descriptive text; you can use checkboxes to get yes-or-no responses
Multiple selection: Presents users with a list of
items, each of which has a checkbox; users can select all applicable
items from the list by checking the appropriate boxes
Single selection: A list of items, each of which
has a radio button; users can select only one of the listed items by
clicking its radio button
- Rating: Presents users with a question followed by a list of items that represent the scale of possible responses; rating items differ from single selection items in that options listed are part of a scale (e.g., 1-5, best-worst)
