Hi again,

I am building a survey and it is necessary for the questions to appear group by group AND in a random order. More specifically, there are almost 90 questions that I would like to appear in arrays, ten questions per array, one array per page (the answers are 5-scale, custom answer title - not numerical - see screenshot below

), and also be randomized to each individual participant. Preceding those 90 questions, there is a group of demographic questions that I would like to remain intact (no randomization).

So there is a pool of 90 questions that need to be presented page by page in 9 arrays (one array per page) of 10 subquestions each, and all of those to be randomly presented, while the demographic questions that belong to a preceding group need to be presented in a non-random way.

I would greatly appreciate any contributions.

Many thanks

Giorgos

P.S. This survey is for academic research (University of Patras, Greece)

You cannot dynamically change which array the sub-questions belong to.

You can randomize the display of sub-questions in a given array - manual.limesurvey.org/Question_type_-_Ar...r_.28random_order.29 .

You can randomize the display of the groups - manual.limesurvey.org/Creating_a_questio..._group_randomization .

Thanks for your quick response.

I have noticed that each subquestion holds a label (e.g. SQ001), couldn't that be a key to be used in a random process, in case I choose those labels to be unique along all arrays?

The thing is that I haven't got any javascript skills.

As I said, the array sub-questions must be defined before survey activation and cannot be moved dynamically at survey runtime.
