This article will walk you through how to select and configure an Assessment.
To begin, log into insights.gloo.us and click Assessments on the navigation bar.
You can learn more about each Assessment here. Hover over the Assessment you want to explore, click Learn More.
When you have decided which Assessment suites your needs, click the Configure New Assessment button on the top right corner of the window.
The Configure Assessment Tool has five main elements. Configure, Preview, Share, Activity and Analyze.
The Configure tab is where you define the rules of your Assessment deployment.
- Every Assessment requires a start date and time. This will define when your participants will be able to participate in the Assessment. The End field is optional, however, if you do not set an end date, users will be able to take the Assessment and impact the data at any point in the future.
- Choose whether you want contact information Required, Optional, or Anonymous
- Note: Contact information includes: First Name, Last Name, and Email Address and phone number.
- At the end of the Assessment you can direct your participants to Next Steps. Toggle Provide a Next Step to Your Participants, then click the Pencil icon to customize the Name, Description, Link, and Button Label or your Next Step.
- In this window you will see a preview of what your Next Steps button will look like.
- The Custom Redirect field allows you to direct your participants to an external application to display custom results. This option will bypass any Next Steps that may be configured. Click Here to learn more.
Custom Questions Allows you to add up to 10 additional questions or text fields to the end of your Assessment Configuration. These additional questions will not impact the results of the official Assessment data you are collecting but can be a powerful and convenient way to learn more about your Assessment participants.
There are two types of question elements you can add
The Instructions Question is an open text field where you can add instructions or additional information for the participant
Multiple Choice Questions
The Multiple Choice Question allows you to add a question or statement and allow the participant to select amongst a variety of different answers.

Click on the Preview tab to test your Assessment using the Hyperlink, SMS Onboarding flow, or QR code without impacting the data you are looking to collect.
The Share tab provides two options for easy deployment of your Assessment to your participants.
- Share Through SMS allows you to share out a 4-16 character code and phone number that your audience can use to take the Assessment directly from their mobile device.
- Share with a Link allows you to send a web link that can be used to take the assessment in any mobile or desktop based web browser.
- Share with a QR Code creates a simple and delightful user experience for most participants with a smartphone.
Most android and iOS devices natively support QR codes which makes it a great option for onboarding people to the assessment. Just snap a picture with your camera app to open the link.
The Activity tab allows you to monitor how many individuals have started, completed, and clicked through to Next Steps (if configured.)
- Starts: How many participants clicked the Start Assessment button
- Completions: How many participants have clicked the Continue button after answering all of the questions
- Next Steps Clicks: If you provide your participants an option for next steps, this bar will track the number who click the provided link.
The Analyze tool provides instant, detailed visualization to the results of the aggregated Assessment results including a question by question breakdown of the number and percentage of responses. Use this tool to gain deep, critical insight into the habits and beliefs of your Assessment participants. Click the Hamburger icon on the top right of each graph to expand, download, or export the data in a variety of ways. You can find explanations of many of the data points here.
