Gamifying your survey experience using Gametize
Fun fact: Did you know that you can use Gametize for surveys?
Creating the survey questions
Quality, not quantity
Survey your respondents on the most important things you need to know; ideally, they shouldn’t be spending more than a few minutes on the survey.
Having too many questions is a surefire way of putting off respondents; people will get tired and stop answering meaningfully by clicking any option to get through all the questions.
- Consolidate all your survey content into one Topic (preferably at the end, once the player has gone through the whole game).
- A good number of survey questions to ask would be 3-10 – any more than that and it’ll feel very long and drawn out.
Use Poll, Custom Form, and Standard Challenges to effectively format your survey questions
- Custom Form Challenges are a great way to combine several short questions into one page – for example, if you want to ask several questions on your event’s food catering, you can combine them into one Custom Form rather than spreading them out over 5 Challenges.
Some additional settings: Achievements & Rewards
Achievements: Giving out badges
Have attractive rewards that incentives users to complete your survey.
- Admin-only Rewards that you can give out to those that complete the survey (limited stocks)
- Set the points structure in a way that they can only redeem the special reward after getting enough points from the survey
Customize other settings, such as privacy and frequency, to power your survey to the max
- Privatize completions if you would like to keep user’s feedback hidden from other users
- How often players may complete the Challenge, and if you would like them to be able to submit their feedback more than once (e.g. a Challenge where you ask them for ideas to improve the experience)
Lastly.. don't forget to test your survey
