Gabriela,

It's not posible due to the number (and irrelevance) of possible answers in this type of question...

Imagine the open question:
Q: Can you tell me the name of an Egyptian Pharaoh?
R#1: Tutankhamun 40%
R#2: Toutânkhamon 5%
R#3: Toutankamon 12%
R#4: Tutankamon 2%

Hi Gabriela,

Free text (short, long and huge) are not displayed in the stats because there is no way to run an analysis on them. Only question types with fixed answers are analyzed.

Understood. its pure Logic...

thanks a lot.

one last question about this: is there is a way to compare/view especific data (combining different questions) eg:

how many people , age 25, answered correctly a question about malaria?
How many people from certain region dont speak oficial language?

or I have to find a second application where i can apply data compiled with lime? (import the created excel)?

thanks a lot again.

Yes, you can filter the data in the statistics view but using external analysis tools like SPSS, R or Excel will always give you MUCH more flexibility in the analysis.

You'll want to be sitting down when you check the price of SPSS :ohmy:

I was sitting down when I checked R. Its impossible to ask end users (normal human beings) to apply it..
SPSS no chance.
Back to excel.
grazie.
