What are screeners?
Screeners are multiple-choice questions that you may need to answer before you're able to accept a test. These questions help customers make sure they receive feedback from their target audiences.
Customers can use screeners to ask about your employment experience, likes, and dislikes, shopping habits, hobbies, and more. The most important point to remember about screeners is to answer honestly. Find out what it means when you don't pass a screener or qualify for a test.
How do customers use my screener responses?
If you pass all of the screener questions for a test, complete the test, and successfully upload your test video, the customer can view the screener responses you provided for that test. However, when you answer screener questions but don't qualify for the test, the customers won't be able to view your responses.
What else should I know about screeners?
You can only answer screener questions once
If you don't qualify for a test based on your screener responses, you won't be able to reanswer the questions. This is true even if you accidentally select the wrong answer, so carefully read the questions and all possible answers before submitting your response. Unfortunately, we're unable to reset the screeners.
How to answer screener questions
If you're taking a screener and none of the options apply to you, simply exit the screener and decline the test.
If you're completing a screener and more than one answer applies to you but you're limited to one choice, please choose the most recently applicable answer.
The importance of being honest when you answer screener questions
It's very important that you answer every screener question truthfully because the customer will expect you to discuss and explain your answers during the test.
If you're unable to do this, the customer may give you a low rating and/or cancel your test payment. Learn more about how ratings work.
