Vocabularyfilter: I am looking for some near-synonyms for "binary" and "analog" but without the techie sheen those both have.

For a checklist of questions, I need a way to distinguish between two types of questions: some of the items are answerable by a simple "yes or no" while others have a spectrum of responses, each worth a certain value on a numerical scale. That is to say, if questions are worth five points each, some will be scored only zero or five (the "yes or no" items), while other items might get a two or a four or a one. The placeholder terms I am using right now are "yes or no" and "rateable," but I am sure there must be more elegant terms than these.
