Which survey tool will show previous responses, in-line with questions?
October 9, 2013 5:15 PM   Subscribe

I'm sending out a survey to a group of people, and it would be great if they could see how others (before them) responded to each question. Google Forms and Survey Monkey allow respondents to see past responses after they've completed the survey, but not while they're filling out the survey. Is there a tool out there that embeds past responses in-line with questions?

For example, I'd like to do something like the following:

Q1: What is your name?
A: ________________

Responses to this question so far:
Leo Tolstoy
Jane Austen

Q2: How old are you?
A: ________________

Generally this is not a good idea, if you really want to find out anything. Research has shown that there's a strong tendency for people to answer the same way others do, if they know. Obviously this isn't going to apply so much to things like name and age, but I assume that's not the point of your questionaire.

Response by poster: To clarify: respondents will really benefit from seeing how others have responded before them. This isn't to gather any field-level information, just to gauge interest on a few topics.

You're going to find you have a lot of interest in the first things suggested, I'm afraid.
