Limesurvey randomizing

It is kind of an odd problem.
For the following pretty straight forward question: How do I randomise questions within a group in Limesurvey? It seems to be really hard to find an answer.

With the help of JonasĀ I figured out that there is a randomisation option hidden in the ‘Advanced Settings’ section of a question. What you have to do is provide the same number (this is important) for each question in a group that you want to randomise. Limesurvey will then take care of the rest. It did not seem to work if I named the variable with a string, eg, ‘group1’ but only numeric counters work fine.

Thanks Jonas! (I would not have finished at all) …

One thought on “Limesurvey randomizing

  1. I have been using this very convenient option as well! I was wondering whether it is possible to find the displayed order of questions per survey response, but I cannot find such an option immediately. Do you happen to be aware whether LimeSurvey records the actual display order of randomized items?

    Thank you!
