"Why does the progress bar jump?"
Each participant will see a progress bar on the top of each page as they go through the survey.
This shows how many questions the participant has left to complete on the survey. However, this bar does not move or go up after each finished question, it only goes up after each finished page. This means that the time bar may go up a lot for one a page that contains many questions but only a little for a page that contains only a few questions.
