Hi All,
I've programmed a task to show a single slider question on each page, but something strange is happening.  I'll put my code at the bottom of the email and for now I'll explain what's happening.  For simplicity's sake, let's say I have 10 questions.  If I set /questions on the surveypage to noreplace(q1,q2,q3,q4,q5,q6,q7,q8,q9,q10) I get a weird effect:

The key here is that it only happens if I include q6 in combination with any other question(s).  So if I run everything but q6 it's fine, if I run only q1 (or any other question) and q6 it still happens.  Here's a picture of how it should look:

The problem is, that though I know this piece of code is poorly constructed, I don't see any reason why q6 should be bugging out like this.  Thanks in advance for any help!  Here's the code:

<expt FrequencyCondition>

<surveypage page1>
/ questions= [1-10=noreplace(q1,q2,q3,q4,q5,q6,q7,q8,q9,q10)]
/ showbackbutton = false
/ showpagenumbers = false
/ showquestionnumbers = false
/ recorddata = true
</surveypage>

does not mean "display ONE random question out of the TEN". It means "display ALL TEN questions on the page IN RANDOM ORDER". The overlapping effect stems from the fact that you are drawing slider after slider on top of each other on the page.

What you actually want is

<surveypage page1>
/ questions= [1=noreplace(q1,q2,q3,q4,q5,q6,q7,q8,q9,q10)]
/ showbackbutton = false
/ showpagenumbers = false
/ showquestionnumbers = false
/ recorddata = true
</surveypage>

and you'll probably also want to run the page via a <block>, not a <survey>:

<expt FrequencyCondition>
/ blocks = [1=states;2=frequency]
</expt>

<values>
/ valuename1 = "600,000"
</values>

<dropdown state>
/ options = ("District of Columbia")
/ defaultresponse = ("District of Columbia")
</dropdown>

<survey states>
/ pages = [1=statepage]
</survey>

<surveypage statepage>
/ questions = [1=state]
</surveypage>

<block frequency>
/ trials = [1-10=page1]
/ screencolor = white
/ timeout = 1200000
</block>

<surveypage page1>
/ questions= [1=noreplace(q1,q2,q3,q4,q5,q6,q7,q8,q9,q10)]
/ showbackbutton = false
/ showpagenumbers = false
/ showquestionnumbers = false
/ recorddata = true
</surveypage>
