Question type - Gender
From LimeSurvey Manual
This question type collects gender information ("Male" or "Female") from the respondents.
Example: Gender question type.zip
This option allows the survey administrators to request their respondents to answer to certain survey questions. If the mandatory questions are not answered, the respondents will not be able to proceed further. If you have a question with multiple subquestions and you require only certain subquestions to be answered, use the minimum answer attribute located under the Logic tab.
- On - Question must be answered before the participant can proceed to the next page - the answer option 'No answer' is never shown.
- Soft - If the question is not answered a warning is shown when trying to proceed to the next page - however the participant can choose to ignore the warning and proceeed. Note that the 'No answer' option is still shown (if activated in survey presentation settings)
- Off (default) - Question can be left unanswered
Condition (previously "Relevance equation")
If the result value of the condition is "1" or "true", the question is "relevant" in the survey context, i.e. it is shown to the survey participant. If not, the question is hidden. Any survey question allows you to specify a relevance equation. This function is the successor of conditions and supports much more complex conditional logic.
Whenever you save the condition, it is evaluated and syntax-highlighted. Any errors will be color coded so that you can quickly detect and fix them.
- Any condition that makes use of the ExpressionScript syntax, without surrounding curly braces.
Here are good examples of syntax highlighting.
Display type (display_type)
Select the desired option according to the way in which you wish to have the gender options displayed in the survey.
- Button group (default)
- Radio list
Hide tip (hide_tip)
Most questions will usually include a tip that says "Please choose one of the following options" or a hint text on how to fill out the question. This attribute allows you to turn off or on this tips/hints.
These tips/hints include validation criteria messages (such as min/max number of answers, min/max/equals sum value). If hide_tip is enabled, these messages will be hidden. However, if the user enters invalid data, the tips will appear. They will be coloured in red, getting changed to green once the validation criteria are met.
- On - the tips/hints are hidden;
- Off (default).
Question theme (question_theme)
It allows you to use customized themes for the respective question.
- Your created question themes which are located under the Question themes in the Themes panel.
If enabled, the question will always be hidden - it will not be displayed to the survey participants. This function can be used in the following scenarios:
- If you wish to prefill a question with a URL and you want not to have it displayed on the screen. This overrides any conditions used within the survey because the respective question will not even be embedded on the page.
- If you wish to store or calculate a value on the fly via the ExpressionScript - Presentation.
- Off (default)
CSS class (css_class)
If you want to add special CSS classes to certain questions, you can enter the CSS class name(s) in this box. Make sure you leave an empty space between different class names.
- Any text string with a space between different CSS class names.
Relevance help for printable survey (printable_survey_relevance_help)
If you wish to print a survey, you can also print the relevance equations for each question. But, if you wish to offer instead an explanation rather than the expression on the printed form, fill in this box with the text explanation for the relevance equation.
- Any text and/or numbers you wish to be displayed on the printable form.
Randomization group name (random_group)
It places the questions into a specified randomization group, all questions included in the specified group being displayed in a random order to the survey respondents.
You can find a sample survey using randomization group name in ExpressionScript sample survey.
Just enter any string you like (for example: 'group1'). All question which have set the same string within the randomization group name box will have their place in the survey randomized (=randomly exchanged among each other).
Preview To preview the questions use the preview survey instead of the preview question group function, as the second has been reported to not show the questions in a randomized order.
Insert page break in printable view (page_break)
This attribute is only active when you actually print a survey from the Printable View. It forces a page break before the question.
- Off (default)
SPSS export scale type (scale_export)
- Default (default)
Show in public statistics (public_statistics)
This attribute allows the survey administrator to chose if a particular question results should be displayed to the survey participants after they submitted the survey.
The default setting for each question is 'Off' (=Do not show the question statistics to the respondents). You have to enable this for every single question if you want to show the survey statistics of that (those) particular question(s) to the survey participants after the survey submission.
- Off (default)
Display chart (display_chart)
This attribute allows the survey administrator to choose if a chart that contains the question results should be displayed to the survey participants after they filled out the survey.
- Off (default)
Chart type (chart_type)
This attribute allows the survey administrator to choose which type of chart will be displayed to the respondent once he/she finished filling out the survey.
- Bar chart
- Pie chart
