as to the data analysis worker, they don't care the question content, they only need the assessment value.
i output the data in spss format, but the questions have assessment value are still outputed as answer string like 'agree''disagree',not assessment value like 1,0.
then i almost cannot do anything because the string is not processed by SPSS.
if i need the assessment value output, how to do it?

Why are the data worker not using the real answer codes? Why the assessments?
To have 0 and 1 instead of Strings "No" or "Yes" is not directly connected with assessments.
Usually you have the codes and the labels which allow you to switch display in SPSS in a second.

Check if the questionstypes are supported and the values are set.

You can always modify the import SPSS syntax script to import the data the way you like them.

If you can attach an example question with the way you did assign the values we might get an idea.

i think the problem is:LS assessment value is not included in the SPSS output files.which means the data worker have no data if without survey desinger help.
in SPSS process, assessment value is the only thing can be processed and analysis. the string and answer code are not SCALE DATA in SPSS.
manually we can switch the answer to assessment value, but not in a second. because the data worker is not involved in survey design.
the ideally situation is: all information are included in the SPSS output.
i am not in office today so cannot attach example.i think it's the problem of simple survey and complex survey.

As far as I know, the assessment values are not stored in the database anyway. Not in the SPSS export, nor in the Excel Export. It is only used for calculations within Limesurvey, as far as I know.

You should be able to export the codes into SPSS, not the wording. Then it should be easy to create the assessment in a new column in SPSS. The "data analysis worker" should be able to do this, even without being involved in the survey design process.

that's the key problem:the only thing can be calculated by SPSS is not included in SPSS output.
it's hard to avoid mistake when data worker have no original LS spss output,even only 5 reverse question in 60 questions survey.
just in my view,manually process will increase the date pollution.

The normal question codes are not exported? Or did you not give any numbers as codes??? I am not quite sure if I understand your problem. Do you have an example, e.g. screenshot?

the answer codes like A1,B2 can be exported.those codes are string, not the scale value,not data,not calculated by SPSS.
string means nothing in SPSS,A1 may be score1 in question1, may be score 2 in question 2, manually switch A1 to assessment value is not ideally solution.
