If you’ve ever wanted wanted to test how question wording, descriptive text, or even images might impact responses, you can now do it right within SurveyMonkey.
Our new feature, Random Assignment, lets you randomly assign each survey respondent to a group which is shown a particular version of a question, an image, or descriptive text. For example, you might want half of your survey takers to see one image, and the other half to see a different image, to see how the two different images affect responses. This feature lets you test variables in descriptions, images and even the wording of questions themselves.
In the embedded survey below, we show two different images as well a two different questions as an example of testing a potential customer rewards program. Try reloading the page a few times to see the image and question change!

Finally, assign the percentage of respondents you’d like to see each variable.
