Describes the text used to elicit a response for the Concept to be measured.

A Question may be a single question used to obtain a response, or may be a multiple question, a construct which links multiple sub-questions, each with their own response.

A Question also includes a relationship to the Value Domain to document the associated response criteria for the question. A single response question will have one Value Domain associated with it, while a 'multiple question' may have more than one Value Domain.

A Question should be designed with re-use in mind, as it can be used in multiple Questionnaires.
