When included in a screener or Express mission, knockout questions automatically disqualify scouts based on certain answer choices that you select. These applicants will be skipped to the end of the screener or Express mission and marked as a bad fit for your research. In the case of an Express mission, the scout will not be paid for their participation, and you will not see their submission.
It's almost always a good idea to begin with a knockout question or two. This will save a lot of time and effort on the part of both you and scouts who aren't qualified for your project.
To apply knockout options to a question in a New Express mission:
- Click on the drop-down menu next to the response choice
- Select the "Knockout" option
To apply knockout options to a question in a screener:
- Click on the skip logic arrow next to the answer that should terminate participants.
- Select the "Knockout" option.
When reviewing questions, you'll know which answers terminate applications, but the the applicants themselves won't.
In screeners, scouts terminated through a knockout question will be automatically marked as a "Bad Fit" and hidden from your view when you sort through applications.
