Hi everybody, we are currently setting up a questionaire for our online experiment and have problems randomizing the treatment in the beginning. Can anybody help us out? Would be great!
We created an equation question (in an own question group) with {rand(1,5). In the following we created five question groups which contain our five different treatments. Here we picked for relevance: ((randnumber == "X")) (X=1-5).
But still, the preview shows all of the treatments. Does that mean it doesn't work? Or is it just not possible to see it in the preview?

Thanks a lot in advance! Best, Franka

Yeah, that should work in preview.

Try this for the equation in the "randnumber" question. It will ensure that the random number is only generated once.
{if(randnumber >= 0, randnumber, rand(1,5))}
