Quest can generate a map of activities. At each step, friendly characters voice directions, questions, and response choices. Optional mini-games help maintain engagement and reward kids for progress.
Designed for children aged 5-12, Quest offers a selection of engaging survey layouts for younger (5–9 years) and older (10–12 years) children. The surveys support a variety of response formats and the option to embed audio and graphics.
Audio and visual accommodations make it easier for kids to understand and respond to questions in Quest.
