Slider Scale

A Slider Scale question displays a horizontal slider under the question text. The respondent can slide the slider from left to right to set the numeric value of their answer.

Typically, a Slider Scale would be used to capture a percentage or another number that would fall within a fixed range. For example, you could ask the respondent how many cars they own.
