The Matrix Question

A matrix question is a set of of questions that share an answer scale. Our clients use these to evaluate a related set of questions along the same rating system. The best practice is to ask no more than 1-2 matrix questions per project and place them towards the end of your survey.

**Note: Matrix questions can have a maximum of 5 answer options, 30 character maximum each.
