Similar questions may focus on asking people levels of satisfaction on, say, a scale of one to five. With open questions the researcher leaves it to the respondents as to how they word their answers. Questions can therefore be more wide-ranging and open-ended. Such questions are more often asked in the interview situation than in a postal questionnaire. The interviewer may ask a question and follow it up with ‘prompts’ or ‘probes’ to encourage the respondents to go into more depth with their answers.
