Continuous Sum Question Type
Continuous Sum questions allow respondents to enter numeric values (often percentages or dollar amounts) for a list of items that are then summed for a total value.
When To Use It
This question type is used to see how a value, such as a budget, is allocated across several line items. You can set the question to have a maximum or minimum value that must be met in total. If you wish to allow a respondent to enter any total value, simply keep the min and max to 0 or set a high max such as 9,999,999. You can hide the diagnostic showing the max/min values.
Options and Settings
For this question you can choose the following:
Results will be displayed in a table that shows various statistics such as average value, maximum and minimum value, standard deviation, and sum of values for each line item.
Individual results (displayed as a spreadsheet) will display the line item as a column header and the respondent's value below that.
