Hi Guys

I am trying to build a Triplet question (for use in the psychometric field)

In such a question, you have the layout

From the options below, please select ONE item you relate to MOST, and ONE item you relate to least.

MOST LEAST
I like x X
I like y
I like z X

The user must choose exactly ONE most and exactly ONE least option.
It must not be possible for the user to pick more options.
(forced choice format)

Can you please advise if this would be possible?

I have tried using an array, but it still allows for selecting more than ONE.

Any support will be appreciated.

Regards
Renier

I think you can use Array by column question type.

It's exactly what you want .

Hi

Thanks for the quick response.

This is getting close, but it still has a problem.

Using the array by column, solves the problem of having exactly ONE answer for most and ONE answer for least.
The next problem to solve is that for the sub questions, you cannot select the same sub question for as MOST and LEAST.

Example
It should not be possible to answer like the example below
.............MOST...LEAST
I like x......X....... X
I like y................
I like z................

Any ideas?

Thanks
Renier

I think I saw a similar request before and the only solution for this was to code some customized Javascript.

Thank you guys!

After reading more about the Javascript options, I were able to achieve the required functionality.

For ease of future reference, the article docs.limesurvey.org/Workarounds%3A+Quest...axDiff_question_type solved the problem.

If anyone has other possible solutions, please feel free to let me know.

Many thanks
Renier
