Hello all,

I have a study where I want a set of 22 questions to be randomly presented to the respondents. Since they are all in the same question group, I've assigned the same randomization group name to each question (more precisely in each question's advanced settings respective option). The thing is, when I preview the question group, the questions appear as I want, i. e., randomly ordered. However, if I test the survey (activated or not, the result is the same), the questions appear in their natural order. I've tried to clear Chrome's cache to no success. I searched but couldn't find a similar problem out there in the forums, did anyone know what might be happening here?

By the way, I doubt this helps but they're array questions. And I'm using LS version 2.00+ Build 121017.

All the best,
João

P.S.: I even assigned the same randomization group name to the group where these questions are, also with no success, although that doesn't surprises me, since I think this is only valuable for randomizing groups, isn't it?

The same is equal to follow the procedure pointed in this thread:

Can someone help me?

We fix a lot of bug in randomisation in last version, please test with the mast version (2.05).

Hi Denis, thanks for your answer.

Unfortunately, I don't know if an upgrade is a viable solution, since I'm not the network administrator around here, I'm just another user. Of course I will contact the system administrator team and ask for an upgrade to the latest version, I hope it can happen soon.

The remaining question is: do you think there is a workaround for this (other than an upgrade, of course)?

All the best,
João

Hi,

To validate if it's work with last version, you can test in 2.05 demo version : www.limesurvey.org/en/demo

For workaround : if it's the same page, maybe you can move question wrapper according to some random value.

Not only it, worked with the demo version, I got Tech Support department to install it, is apparently working smooth & painless, many many thanks! :]

Best regards,
João

P.S.: Don't know if it helps, but before upgrading to 2.05 I've tried to randomize groups (created 2 groups with 1 question each), also with no success. Your suggestion wouldn't work here because I have one question per page.

Before some fix, question in different group are never shown ...
random_group for 2 question in 2 different group are completely broken.

But now, it work.
