fixed-choice questionnaire

Quick Reference

A questionnaire in which the questions posed are accompanied by a range of answers from which each respondent is asked to indicate which answer, out of the fixed choices, best applies to them. Such questionnaires are useful in gathering data and standardizing responses, but there is a danger that none of the fixed-choice responses really applies to the respondent, and the researcher's own prejudices may be imposed on the respondent.

Subjects: Sports and Exercise Medicine.
