TOPIC: Reverse asseszment values in an array label set

Reverse asseszment values in an array label set 3 years 3 months ago #64753

Take for example a question set that provides a statement and provides four answers for the respondent to select - e.g.

(these would be radio buttons under the labels (obviously)

1 - "I'm very happy" YES! yes no NO!
2 - "I'm very unhappy" YES! yes no NO!

the titles of the labels are Yes!; yes; no; NO!
The assezzment values:
YES! = 1
yes = 2
no = 3
NO! = 4

the reversed assezzment values are

YES! = 4
yes= 3
no = 2
NO! = 1

We want the assezzment calculations for question 2 to use the reversed values...

So

if a respondent selected YES! to "I'm very happy" they score 1
if a respondent selected YES! to "I'm very unhappy" they score 4

Can we do this in Limesurvey?

PS - please excuse the spelling - the 'zz' in place of 'ss' is to prevent the auto-generation of this: <a href='docs.limesurvey.org/tiki-index.php?page=<a href='docs.limesurvey.org/tiki-index.php?page=...tions+for+LimeSurvey'>assessments</a>&structure=English+Instructions+for+LimeSurvey'>assessment</a>

I'm having this issue too. In summary, I have 26 questions in an array on a 5-point scale. For a few of the questions, the assessment values need to be reversed. I don't want to create 26 individual questions if I can avoid it. Example is:

I carefully watch the quantity of food I eat 1 2 3 4 5
I eat foods that will help me lose weight 1 2 3 4 5
I eat and just can't seem to stop 5 4 3 2 1 <-- this needs reverse scored

Thanks,
Matt

I don't think there is any way around this except to use several array questions using 2 different label sets.

You can use CSS to hide question text and labels and remove spacing between questions so they all appear to be in one array.

You have to splitt this up into different questions if you want different scales.
