## Randomizing questionnaire orders with 2-page questionnaires

##### Randomizing questionnaire orders with 2-page questionnaires
 Author Message satchmo496 Group: Forum Members Posts: 16, Visits: 32 All,I'm designing a study containing a few questionnaires that, for reason of length, extend across 2 survey pages. This is posing a problem for me since I'd like to randomize the order of presentation of the questionnaires but, for obvious reasons, I need the individual pages associated with each questionnaire to remain together. Is this something that's possible to do in Inquisit? I have no problem randomizing questionnaire orders when dealing with single-page questionnaires, but I haven't been able to figure out how to keep the two pages of a specific questionnaire together while still randomizing the order of the questionnaires. Right now randomization results in problematic orders like this: Page1 of Survey 1, Page 2 of Survey2, Page1 of Survey2, Page2 of Survey 1.Any help would be most appreciated!

E.g., suppose you have two questionnaires 'qa' and 'qb', each comprising two pages 'p01' and 'p02', then/ trials = [1=qa_p01; 2=qa_p02]/ trials = [1=qb_p01; 2=qb_p02]/ blocks = [1-2=noreplace(qa,qb)]or (for separate data files per )/ pages = [1=qa_p01; 2=qa_p02]/ pages = [1=qb_p01; 2=qb_p02]/ blocks = [1-2=noreplace(qa,qb)]You may even take it one step further randomize the pages withing each questionnaire in addition:/ pages = [1-2=noreplace(qa_p01,qa_p02)]/ pages = [1-2=noreplace(qb_p01,qb_p02)]/ blocks = [1-2=noreplace(qa,qb)]Regards,~Dave
