This attribute causes LimeSurvey to ignore the existing order of answer options/subquestions, and instead it orders them randomly. It is important to note that this random order will be reordered each time the question is displayed, so if someone returns to a question, the order will probably be different from the first time they saw it. Having the answers display randomly is useful to remove the possibility of bias from answers to questions. Please note that if a question has subquestions the order of subquestions will be randomized, not the order of the answer options.

Random answer order (random_order)

Description

This attribute causes LimeSurvey to ignore the existing order of answer options/subquestions, and instead it orders them randomly. This option permits the survey creator to diminish the survey bias. Please note that if a question has subquestions, the order of subquestions will be randomized, not the order of the answer options.

Available options

  • Yes - Randomize when participant enters survey
  • No (default)


Example

See this example (outside link) to better understand how to use different LimeSurvey randomization features.
