Key Details

Screen it 2.0 is a sequential test, meaning that consumers will be comparing each of the items that are tested against each other instead of evaluating each item individually on its own merits. With Screen it, you may:

  • Test a variety of ideas in 50+ markets within as little as 5 hours

    Screen up to 60 items (depending on market feasibility)

    Test a wide variety of stimuli, including early product ideas, logos, names, claims in image and text format

    Sequential ranking on chosen measure for easy insights-driven decisions - ability to choose from 10 key measures to rank on

    Additional metrics measured on a scale of 1-5 to help you understand potential of your ideas:

    • Distinctiveness
    • Advantage

Additional metrics & diagnostics:

    • Relevance
    • Believability
    • Attribute association
  • Open ended reactions to your ideas that help you optimize them further by understanding detailed respondent feedback. You can select if you want to get the open ends in form of:
    • Auto-coded likes & dislikes - to key themes for each stimulus as well as for a combination of stimuli
    • OR Heatmaps likes & dislikes - for image stimuli you can see which areas of your stimuli are most and least liked

Pro tip! Custom questions in ScreenIt allow you to pipe in stimuli to the rows of a grid question, allowing you to get more precise answers from respondents about your ideas. When adding a custom grid question during configuration, use this toggle:

Selecting Stimulus Type

When configuring your test you will be asked to select the type of stimulus you are testing. You will see a pre-determined list of stimulus type, and it's important that you select the most relevant descriptor of your stimulus from the drop-down list:

  • Concept
  • Design
  • Idea
  • Message
  • Name
  • Product

Use the following grid to map your stimulus to the most relevant stimulus type:

Design Concept Message Idea Product Name
Design Concept Message Idea Product Name
Logo Flavor Claim Innovation idea

Image Flavour Advert Offer

Packaging
Statement Promotion

Package
Tagline Partnership

Pack design
Advertisement Product idea

Pack
Digital ad


Package design
Tweet


Packaging design
Headline


If your stimuli type is not in our pre-defined list, you can use the introduction page to provide respondents with the needed context. For example, if you are testing a package, you could select ‘Design’ and add the following survey intro:
"We are considering some new package designs and would like your opinion about them…."

Questionnaire Flow and Key Metrics

  • Ranking. A respondent will see a maximum of five (5) items that are tested. Respondents rank each of the items that they have been shown. They will see all five stimuli individually to begin, and will see them displayed together towards the end of the test as well.  
  • Optional Measure Questions. One to six Optional Measures questions can be selected for the respondent to react to: 
    1. Attribute association
    2. Behavior change
    3. Distinctiveness
    4. Advantage
    5. Relevance
    6. Believability
  • Diagnostic options:
    • Open ended likes & dislikes: respondents are asked to provide open ended feedback on what they liked and what they disliked about the items they rated the highest and the lowest.
    • Heatmaps: respondents are shown the items that they rated the highest and the lowest. They'll click on the areas that they like the most and the least and add open ended feedback.
