General description

The Array (Numbers) question type allows a large array of numbered dropdown boxes with a set of subquestions as the “y-axis”, and another set of subquestions as the “x-axis”. It provides for a very large display of question and answers. By default the dropdown box contains the numbers from 1 to 10, however this can be changed by adjusting the advanced question settings.

The behavior is like this:

  • If you only specify a minimum value the range will adjust as min value + 10
  • If you only specify a maximum value, the range will be 1 and maximum value.
  • When both minimum and maximum value are present and if the minimum value is greater than the maximum value, no dropdown box will be displayed otherwise it works as usual.

Insert page break in printable view (page_break)

Description

This attribute is only active when you actually print a survey from the Printable View. It forces a page break before the question.

Available options

  • On
  • Off (default)



Show in public statistics (public_statistics)

Description

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.

Help.png Note: To have the statistics displayed on the last page, do not forget to enable this functionality from the presentation & navigation settings. Otherwise, no statistics link will be displayed at the end of your 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.

Available options

  • On
  • Off (default)



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)
