survey question type semantic differential

Settings and options of the semantic differential question type:

Number of assessments
Here you can select how many assessment levels should be given in between the individual characteristic pairs.

Required question
This allows you to declare the issue as a mandatory question. The participant has to answer to this question before he can move to the next page.

Randomizing
If you select this option, the characteristic pairs for each participant are displayed in random order.

Additional text box under the question
With this option you can place a text box directly below the question, e.g. for comments. The text field can be defined freely in its width and row height.

Help icon (tooltip)
With this option, help texts or further information can be placed behind a help icon next to the question title.

“no statement” button to not answer the question
This option is useful if you have a mandatory question. It allows the participants to continue the survey, even if they don't want to give an answer.

Internal value
The internal value allows you to replace the answers of the participants through a pre-defined value for the export (Excel, CSV and SPSS). Like this you can edit the output value in the export for further processing.
 
Example
The participants can select from the following evaluation Range:
3 | 2 | 1 | 0 | 1 | 2 | 3

In Excel or SPSS such information may not be useful, so you can just replace it with other values.

3 = 3
2 = 2
1 = 1
0 = 0
1 = -1
2 = -2
3 = -3

In the export the numbers will appear instead of the answer options.The placement of an internal value can be edited at any time, while creating the question or after the survey, to optimize the data for export.


Upload Image
In addition to uploading an image directly into the questionnaire, you can also upload an image into the question. The advantage is, that you can place an image between the question line and the answer options.
