Hi,

We have a large bank of questions - 470 in total, but we only want to show a random subset from this entire set (let's say 100). Is there a way to do this?

I guess we could create multiple mini of the survey by randomly putting a subset of the total in each survey and randomize the questions within each survey, but I wonder if it is possible to do this in the one survey.

All of the questions are semantic differentials.

Thank you.

What format is the survey?

If "All in one" (which I doubt), you can randomize the questions and then use JavaScript to hide all but the first 100. Of course, you will not be able to use the "Mandatory" setting for the questions as the hidden ones won't be answered. If you need the questions mandatory you will also need to use JavaScript to check them on page submit.

If the survey is "Group by group" or "Question by question", you can use JavaScript to have the "Next" button submit the survey at a given survey step. For example, if using "group by group" with 5 questions in each group, you could have script in group 20 alter the "Next" button to say "Submit" and have it submit the survey.
Cheers,

Do you plan to use tokens?

We weren't planning to use tokens, but would it help?

Not really. All those "Show X of Y questions" workarounds rely and creating some random numbers by Javascript and enter them at hidden questions. Then you can use conditions on those hidden questions. But for 100 questions that gets really messy.
