What are the advantages of a closed question?

Closed-ended question advantages:
  • It is easier and quicker for respondents to answer.
  • The answers of different respondents are easier to compare.
  • Answers are easier to code and statistically analyze.
  • The response choices can clarify question meaning for respondents.

Similarly, why is it important to ask open ended questions in an interview?

Closed questions force students to think about what they believe the teacher wants to hear. But open-ended questions allow them to consider their own ideas, thoughts and feelings. They also encourage collaborative work and respect, especially when the open-ended questions are part of a whole-group discussion.

What are open questions and closed questions?

Closed-ended questions are those which can be answered by a simple "yes" or "no," while open-ended questions are those which require more thought and more than a simple one-word answer.
