1: Creating a Rating Question
To create a rating question, first create a new single-select or select (dropdown) element and add rows and/or columns. Then check the "Rating/Scale" box in the options section for the element. This will create NETs for the element in the report. The NET options for a 4-7 point rating scale will include the top 2/bottom 2 NETs, and an 8-11 point rating scale will add the top 3/bottom 3 NETs.
