For self-administered questionnaire, the questions are meant to extract valuable information for the purpose of qualitative or quantitative research.

The interview-administered questionnaire questions aim at gauging the capacity of the participant in performing a particular job. The importance of the questions lies in the fact that fundamental concepts of the participant’s knowledge of a specific stream are reviewed. Furthermore, the psychologies of the respondents are assessed by which their mental strength to cope with the responsibilities and tackling impending challenges of the work are estimated.

There are other important functions of questionnaire questions, like supporting the framework of the research with insight. The questions are also helpful in extending the scope of the research to various interlinking fields with good prospects.
