An Entry is the set of answers you submit when participating in a mission. Typically, you’ll submit multiple entries while participating in a single mission, but each mission will require at least one entry per activity. (Don't remember what an activity is? Read more here)
There are eight different types of questions, which are listed below. Click on each to read more about the question type and how it would be used in a mission about tattoos:
- Open-ended questions
- Multiple choice questions
- Ranking questions
- Media questions
- Screen recording questions
- Scale questions
- Number questions
- Questions with "question stimuli"
Open-ended questions ask you to respond in a free-form, text-based manner. Answers to open-ended questions may have a limit of 140 characters.
Multiple choice questions
Multiple choice questions ask you to select one or more choices from a list.
Ranking questions ask you to rank some or all of the response choices from a list. The number of choices you need to rank will be specified above the choice list (e.g. "Rank all 6 choices," "Rank 1 to 3 choices").
Pro tip: Read the directions carefully to fully understand how the response choices should be ranked (e.g. best to worst, favorite to least favorite, etc.)
Media questions ask you to submit a video or image about a specific topic. For video questions, the length of the video will be determined by your mission leader and communicated in the question prompt.
Screen recording questions
Screen recording questions ask you to share your thoughts aloud while recording your screen on your mobile device. For these questions, please note that you'll be recording everything on your screen while talking out loud.
When you encounter a screen recording question, you'll be shown a tutorial on how to screen record. In case you need a refresher, here's what you'll see depending on your device type!
All Android devices with dscout app version 4.19.0 and above
iPhone 8 and below with dscout app version 3.76 and above
iPhone X and above with dscout app version 3.76 and above
Scale questions ask you to respond to a prompt using a rating system.
Number questions ask you a question to which you can only respond with a number.
Checkpoints aren't technically question types, but you may encounter them throughout a mission. Checkpoints allow our mission leaders to provide further instruction throughout the mission and don't require you to do anything other than read the text.
Questions with question stimuli
Some question types will have images at the beginning of the prompt. These types of questions are designed for scenarios when you need to review one or several images, then respond and react to what you were shown. In order to complete these questions, you'll first need to expand and scroll through all images; then, you'll be able to respond and move to the next question.
