In order to work with Pre and Post Survey, we need to link them with a Gateway Survey which serves as a unique identifier to link the Pre and Post Survey to one user. You can use any simple identifier like an email address or student Id etc. Any of the question types preferably a text box can be used. You can create the survey by logging in.
Once you have decided the gateway identification question, you should know whether the user needs to be redirected to the Pre-test Questionnaire or the Post-Survey Research Questionnaire. You can add a question for this.
The Gateway Survey and the Pre and Post Survey will all be part of one single survey. You can just add pages and create each part of the survey.
You have to create URL redirect links to both Pre and Post Survey from the Gateway Survey and share the Gateway Survey URL link with the audience.
