Hi,

we are planning a survey/test consisting of two parts: one set of some general questions which must be answered only once by each participant (at his first visit), and the main set of (specific) questions which should be answered repeatedly by each participant at given intervals, for example once per month.

In other words, the set of general questions could be (logically) considered as part of the registration process; these answers are quasi additional information for the respective user profile. The second (main) part of the survey must be revisited by each participant, say, every 1th of a new month, in order to answer the same questions again. So the collected data will show the personal trend (e.g. learning curve) for each user on a timeline.


How would you accomplish this with LS, especially the different handling of first and second question set?

Thanks in advance,

awl

To clarify this:

The second (main) part of the survey must be revisited by each participant


Meant was re-visited (i.e. visited again).


BTW, is it generally possible to have the same questions answered more than once by the same user?

Well, I'm assuming you are going to use tokens to track respondents.

You could use 2 surveys and have the End URL in the first survey direct to the second survey - there are several examples of how to do this described in the forums.

In the second survey, you can give the tokens multiple uses - manual.limesurvey.org/Tokens

Yes.

Thank you, that's it! (Why did I not get it myself...?)
