Is a pre-interview questionnaire normal? Never seen such a thing before.

I just received a pre-interview questionnaire (not sure what else to call it) from a prospective employer I applied at last week. It was sent via email, and the questions were things like "why do you think you'll be a good fit for the company?" Basic things I answered (attempted to answer?) in the cover letter. It's been a while since I looked for a job, is this now standard? Or is someone being lazy? Should I answer it? (There is no urgency to my job hunt) FWIW, I'd expect to answer questions like these in an interview, or possibly even a phone call.
