Qualtrics Survey System

Using Display Logic

Using the Display Logic feature in Qualtrics, you can have a question appear to your respondents only if they answer a previous question in a certain way. For example, if you were to ask if your respondents had attended orientation at UW-Eau Claire, and they answered yes, then you could use Display Logic to bring up a question asking about their experience. If they answered no, they wouldn't see the question at all. Qualtrics inserts a Page Break after the question that you have applied the Display Logic to.

Display Logic involves two questions:

NOTES:
