Hi Limesurvey,

I'm trying create a questionnaire where participants have to pick between one of two options. So for question 1, they have to either pick description one or description two. For question 2, again, they have to pick either description one or description two. (If that doesn't make sense, check out the attached image).

Ideally, I'd like to set it up as something like an array (like the questionnaire at the top of the attached image) - but I can't seem to find an option to make it work that way. I can't find a way to set up a second option.

However, I think I can make it work as a "list radio" question. (This will probably look more like the questionnaire at the bottom of the attached image). This will take up more room, and not be as neat - but I think it will work.

Can you let me know if you can think of any other way of creating this questionnaire in limesurvey aside from using the List radio option?

Best,
Miles





Is there anyway, I can

If you want that layout, you will need to use JavaScript/jQuery to manipulate 3 radio questions.

Hmmm, you might be able to work with the array question and the semantic differential option with just 2 scale options. Have a look:
manual.limesurvey.org/Question_type_-_Array

The only difference to your example would be, that the radio buttons would be in the middle between the two texts, but I don't think that this would be a big problem.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

As ever Holch, thanks.
I think you're right. I think the Semantic Differential will work.
I thought there was something, but I'd lost track of it. And of course this option doesn't show up as a question type on the main menu as its an advanced option.
Really useful. Thanks again.

Sometimes others see things we don't.

The cleanest solution (if you need it exaclty as displayed) would be of course the Javascript solution that Tpartner suggested. However, I think in your case you probably don't need to go the Javascript path and the semantic differential is a quick solution without having to hassle with Javascript (that is me, not knowing much about Javascript, Tpartner probably solves something like this quicker than I could set up the semantic differntial question).

Good that I could be of help.
