Customized Questions

This article is intended for licensed IDI Qualified Administrators. If you are not a licensed IDI Qualified Administrator and are interested in being licensed to use the Intercultural Development Inventory, visit this article: Should I become an IDI Qualified Administrator (QA)?


When placing an order of IDI Login Codes, you have the option to include customized questions that you create for your respondents to answer. These questions can only be multiple choice where respondents can select only one available response. This means that the questions cannot be open-ended, meaning the respondents will not have the ability to enter their own answer to a given question. However, as the QA, you are able enter the questions and each available response.

The IDI Assessment Website allows up to six (6) customized questions in a single order of IDI Login Codes with up to 20 responses for each question. Once the order is processed, these questions cannot be removed or changed from the IDI Login Codes associated with that order, so be sure that they are correct, appropriate, and to your satisfaction before confirming your order.

As the QA, you are responsible for ensuring that the questions and responses are appropriate for your respondents to answer when completing the IDI Assessment.

If you choose to add additional questions, we encourage you to consider the purpose of asking the questions, and what you intend to do with the data collected from those questions.

Customized questions are not required for respondents to submit the IDI Assessment, so be sure to instruct your respondents to answer any items you deem necessary for your data collection.

Adding Customized Questions to Existing IDI Login Codes

Once you have placed an order, you cannot go back and alter the order in any way. However, if you forgot to add customized questions to your order, you can convert the login codes you created to credits, so that you don't have to pay for another order if the IDI Login Codes have not been used.
