Understanding screener question types
You can ask scouts up to 15 questions in a screener, one of which can prompt scouts to take a picture or video. In addition, you can ask up to 5 pre-written questions asking for basic demographic information.
You can include up to 3 knockout questions to automatically disqualify scouts based on their answer choice. These applicants will be skipped to the end of the screener and marked as “poor fit”.
- Media Questions: You can ask one media question per screener. Think of it as scouts' opportunity to audition for your project.
- Closed Ended Questions: Use single choice & knockout questions to disqualify unsuitable applicants.
- Open Ended Questions: Collect additional detail and context.
- Checkpoint - Give scouts a breather or additional context without asking a question.
