A dichotomous question is one that has two viable answers, such as Yes/No or True/False. For advice on how to best build up this sort of inquiry, click on one of the scenarios below: Include a multiple-choice question with only one response possibility. This makes it easy for your interviewer to see what you know and don't know about the job.
If you're asking someone directly whether they have a criminal record, it's appropriate to ask them if they'll need to clear their name before you can hire them. However, if you're making an application for a position in the government or some other large organization, there may be a database of some kind that keeps track of these things. In this case, you should ask if there is something in the system that would prevent you from hiring them. Not knowing how the system works can be very frustrating for people trying to get past any barriers you've put up, so make sure you include this question.
Finally, if you are calling for applications for a specific position but don't mention what type of question might come up during the interview process, people will assume that you're looking for something that requires personal interaction. If you want to avoid this situation entirely, be sure to include a paragraph in your job posting describing the types of questions that will be answered during the interviewing process.
Multiple choice questions are questions that have more than one correct answer.
A multiple-choice question is a form of questionnaire or survey question that allows respondents to select from several answer possibilities. They are sometimes referred to as "objective response questions" since they force responders to pick only right responses from the available possibilities. Multiple choice questions can be found in research surveys, academic assignments, and application tests.
Multiple choice questions allow for many answers to be given, thus are often used when there is not just one correct answer but many possible ones. For example, if someone was asking you which movie is better, The Godfather or The Godfather: Part II, you would say that these movies have many qualities that make them good films but not necessarily better than the other. With multiple choice questions, respondents are asked to choose one option out of four or five options presented as choices. You should avoid using this type of question if some people will not be able to give an answer or if all the options are not comparable.
Use caution not to ask leading questions on a multiple choice survey. For example, if you were asking people what kind of animal they think a pig is, and then listing off different types of animals including humans, this would be considered a leading question and might cause respondents to provide information that they otherwise might not.
It's important to note that not every question that provides multiple answers is a true/false question.
Multiple-choice questions function similarly to true-or-false questions, with the exception that there are more than two potential answers. With multiple choices, there are several options for what can be written instead of only two possibilities for a simple question. Multiple-choice questions can be divided into three main categories based on their structure: single-selection questions, selection-based multiple-choice questions, and open-ended multiple-choice questions.
