Randomize questions, question & answer groups

Due to quite frequent requests in the forum, I would like to see the possibility to randomize questions, question groups and if possible answer groups (which do not exist yet, but see www.limesurvey.org/en/support/forums/20-...option-group-headers ).

It should be possible to define a group of questions, and those question should be possible to randomize.

Example:

Q1
Q2
Q3a
Q3b
Q3c
Q4
Q5

So the different Q3 questions should be randomized, while the order of the rest stays the same:

Q1, Q2 -start randomize- Q3b/Q3a/Q3c -stop randomize- Q4

The same thing should be possible with groups of questions, example:

Q1
Q2a,b,c
Q3a,b,c
Q4a,b,c
Q5

So this could look like this:
Q1 -start randomize- Q4a,b,c - Q3a,b,c - Q2a,b,c -stop randomize- Q5.

Ideally the questions within the group should be possible to randomize as well (see above).

I agree, this is a very useful feature.

Since the idea cannot be changed after submitting (or is my impression wrong about that and it can be changed?) I see the purpose of this forum to develop the idea and submitting it after a few pro and cons have been discussed. If nobody is submitting a few words here the submission won't make any sense.

I just checked and you can at least edit the proposed solution. So one can outline the problem in details, discuss one or several possible solutions and edit these solutions at a later stage.

I am also interested in having the feature Holch describes. I often used the randomize_groups.pdf workaround in 1.87+, but it does not work reliably in 1.90+. (See bug tracker 00557 for additional detail.) Thanks!

At least the randomization of groups seems to be implemented for the upcoming 1.91 version: limesurvey.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/li...vision&revision=9528

This would be really great, if we would have at least the randomization of groups. This would help quite a lot already.

You should be able to already test the feature at the dev Demo system: www.limesurvey.org/en/support/forums/20-...elopment-test-system

Currently there are several new minor features added by Google Code in students so it might take a while thought most of the feature are ready for a first RC version.
