Is it a good idea to disqualify users from a survey when they get a question "wrong"?


I am in the process of creating a screener survey for an interview. I am creating the questions and now about to set up the actual survey.

My question is, should I let the users complete the whole survey (10-15 questions) so I can evaluate afterwards, or tell them after the first question that returns a reject and halt the survey?

I’m wondering if people know which questions they are getting wrong they will find a way around working out which answer is correct?

Any thoughts on this?


Yes, the point of a screener survey is to qualify them to be interviewed. You should have branching logic so that if they get a question “wrong” they are redirected to a simple thak you, but you don’t qualify.
Screener surveys should be pretty short, around 5 questions so people don’t waste their time.
