Hi community

So I am implementing a survey with ListRadio questions and Countdown timer is set for each question for understanding the implicit associations.

So while the countdown timer works well, but in the Excel exported response sheet I also want the time taken by respondent to answer each question.

Usually LimeSurvey records Question/Group time based on clicking the Next button (if no countdown timer) or while the next question is loaded (if countdown timer).

All my questions has a countdown timer of 8 seconds to answer, but I need the response times as to when the respondent clicked on the response [listRadio button] (which is anywhere from 0-8 seconds) but Excel exported response sheet always shows 8 seconds or around 8 seconds for all questions.

Hi, jackuars,
I cannot reproduce.

IMHO it works as expected.


On the other side: In your case, why use a timer and store the used time?
You can remove all answers > 8 sec later from the data.

Please note this, I have disabled the "Next" button because the next questions appear after a specified time interval (6 sec in my case).


Take a look at the attachment for the timing of my responses. I answered every question in 2 seconds or less but the timings represent otherwise, since most of the values are close to 6 seconds.

Also note in the attachment, one question timing is recorded as above 9 sec (even though i had set it the question time to 6 sec), and I actually felt it because there was a lag in next page load (even though i answered the question in 2 seconds or less).

So I was able to confirm that the timings recorded are not based on when a respondent clicked on a response (listRadio) button but the time taken before the next question was loaded.


As for your question why I would like to record the timings this way (when a respondent clicked on a response) is because because we are doing an IAT (Implicit Association Test) on LimeSurvey. This means that not only does the respondent gets a timed question but also how fast he answers the question is taken into account.

Can you help me how to achieve this?

Hi,
obviously you do not use the IAT workaround.

But if I create just this small example, it seems to work as expected.

Thanks Joff, seems like in your survey the timings are coming out right. Don't know what was wrong in mine.

By the way in your survey only the timings are getting recorded and not the responses. That is, the answers that we select in each question aren't shown in the exported Excel sheet but only the timings. Why is that so?

I attempted the survey and downloaded the responses in CSV & Excel format.

I have attached the CSV/Excel response for you. As you can see, the options (answer) selected for the questions doesn't appear in the sheet.

What's wrong here?
