Hi everyone,
I have a script like the following. I definded 7 likert scale items. What I want to do is randomize those items in the questionnaire. Is there a possibility for that? I already tried doing it with:
<block SN>
/trials=[1-7=noreplacenorepeat(SN_ph1, SN_ph2, SN_ph3, SN_ph4, SN_ph5, SN_ph6,
SN_ps1)]
</block>

but that didn't work, I guess because I specified them in a sequence beforehand.

Best!

You're selecting questions sequentially, so it does not matter how you sample the <likert> elements -- it won't make a difference. But I don't even understand why you've defined seven <likert> elements, could you explain the reason, please?

In my "real" quesionnaire I have 30 statements, that have to be answered on a likert scale. I would like to present those 30 statements in a randomized order

That does not answer the question I asked: Why have you defined more than one <likert> element? If all you want is to randomize the order of questions, then you need only a single <likert> element run 7 (or 30 or however many) times and set <text questions> to /select = noreplace instead of /select = squence.

I guess I did that wrong then. But I don't get how I can specify the names of my variables then or where.

Hi everyone,
I have a script like the following. I definded 7 likert scale items. What I want to do is randomize those items in the questionnaire. Is there a possibility for that? I already tried doing it with:
<block SN>
/trials=[1-7=noreplacenorepeat(SN_ph1, SN_ph2, SN_ph3, SN_ph4, SN_ph5, SN_ph6,
SN_ps1)]
</block>

but that didn't work, I guess because I specified them in a sequence beforehand.

Best!

> I guess because I specified them in a sequence beforehand.

You're selecting questions sequentially, so it does not matter how you sample the <likert> elements -- it won't make a difference. But I don't even understand why you've defined seven <likert> elements, could you explain the reason, please?

In my "real" quesionnaire I have 30 statements, that have to be answered on a likert scale. I would like to present those 30 statements in a randomized order

That does not answer the question I asked: Why have you defined more than one <likert> element? If all you want is to randomize the order of questions, then you need only a single <likert> element run 7 (or 30 or however many) times and set <text questions> to /select = noreplace instead of /select = squence.

I guess I did that wrong then. But I don't get how I can specify the names of my variables then or where.

What variables?

Hi everyone,
I have a script like the following. I definded 7 likert scale items. What I want to do is randomize those items in the questionnaire. Is there a possibility for that? I already tried doing it with:
<block SN>
/trials=[1-7=noreplacenorepeat(SN_ph1, SN_ph2, SN_ph3, SN_ph4, SN_ph5, SN_ph6,
SN_ps1)]
</block>

but that didn't work, I guess because I specified them in a sequence beforehand.

Best!

Not variables, but item names. If I only define one likert scale, what do I put in this section:
<block SN>
/trials=[1=SN_ph1, 2=SN_ph2, 3=SN_ph3, 4=SN_ph4,5= SN_ph5, 6=SN_ph6,
7=SN_ps1)]
</block>

Because I didn't define SN_ph1 etc. then... :) and is there a way to still define those items, because it would be very helpful for analysis to have the names of each item

Hello everyone,
I found this very helpful since I'm trying to do the same thing. So thanks a lot!
I'm now trying to also add an instruction, that is supposed to be displayed on each page, so kind of like a permanent headline. Could somebody help me out?
Best regards!

And also I'm having some troubles understanding the following part of the script. What does the "ph1", "ph2",...etc... stand for? Is it just the names for the items? I'm a bit confused because the seventh item isn't named "ph7" but "ps1"...?!

****************************************************************************************************
<list scaleitem>
/ items = ("ph1", "ph2", "ph3", "ph4", "ph5", "ph6", "ps1")
/ selectionmode = text.questions.currentindex
</list>
