What kind of questions do I answer in an entry?
An Entry is the set of answers you submit when participating in a mission. Typically, you’ll submit multiple entries while participating in a single mission, but each mission will require at least one entry per part (Don't remember what a part is? Read more here).
There are six different types of questions, which are listed below. Click on each to read more about the question type and how it would be used in a mission about tattoos:
- Open-ended questions
- Multiple choice questions
- Media questions
- Scale questions
- Number questions
- Screen recording questions
Open-ended questions ask you to respond in a free-form, text-based manner. Answers to open-ended questions may have a limit of 140 characters.
Multiple choice questions
Multiple choice questions ask you to select one or more choices from a list.
Media questions ask you to submit a video or image about a specific topic. For video questions, the length of the video will be determined by your mission leader and communicated in the question prompt.
Scale questions ask you to respond to a prompt using a rating system.
Number questions ask you a question to which you can only respond with a number.
Screen recording questions
Screen recording questions ask you to share your thoughts aloud while recording your screen on your mobile device. For these questions, please note that you'll be recording everything on your screen while talking out load. To get started, follow these directions:
- Tap on the Let's Go! button in the middle of your screen to get started.
- Depending on your phone's operating device, a dialogue box will appear to tell you that dscout will start capturing everything that's displayed on your screen.
- Tap on the Start Recording button to get started.
Checkpoints aren't technically question types, but you may encounter them throughout a mission. Checkpoints allow our mission leaders to provide further instruction throughout the mission and don't require you to do anything other than read the text.
