What is a “Numeric slider survey question”, and how does it work in a survey/questionnaire?

Numeric slider survey questions enable respondents to choose a response on a numerical scale by selecting the “pointer” and dragging a slider to a value that they feel represents what they have in mind. In this survey type, respondents do not need to input any text or numbers to answer the question. 

These survey questions are versatile and can be used effectively in multiple scenarios – ideally when users need to select a value that falls between two digits. Numeric slider survey questions are far more effective than multiple choice questions when it comes to getting accurate responses from users in certain scenarios.
